Yobs at work. English hoodlums and pranksters, youth of low repute desecrating shrines and memorials to British war dead!!
"Yobbo or yob is a slang term for an uncouth or thuggish blue collar person. The word derives from a back slang reading of the word "boy" (boy or boyo reversed becomes yob or — slightly modified — yobbo)."
Words alone cannot describe!! Unseemly behavior of the most egregious type, without a whole lot of criminal prosecution or even punishment for the perpetrators, if and when caught.
"Revealed: How one war memorial is desecrated in Britain every week"
"War memorials are being desecrated by thieves and vandals at the rate of more than one a week."
"Figures released on the eve of Remembrance Sunday reveal how thugs are casually vandalising plaques, statues and stone crosses."
"Since the country paused to commemorate the war dead in November last year, yobs have damaged at least 56 war memorials."
My initial reaction was this sort of behavior was more or less the type of thing seen ONLY in the U.S. Vandalism and desecration of war memorials and shrines to war dead was purely an American phenomenon? So I might have thought. Evidently this is not so.
Those memorials and shrines have been stripped of metal are being vandalized by drug addicts seeking to sell what they have stolen for scrap, getting a few pounds to procure the next fix? Might be. Evil doers never stop, do they?
