Noel Gallagher believes video games are partly to blame for knife crime culture


noel-gallagher-knife-crime-video-games.jpgPoor old Noel must be getting old – he’s started blaming things he doesn’t understand for all the wrongs of society. Today, it’s knife crime that’s the fault of games.

Speaking to Radio 1’s news show, Gallagher said “People say it’s through violent video games and I guess that’s got something to do with it,” showing that he hasn’t lost his knack of recycling other people’s ideas and passing them off as his own.

“If kids are sitting up all night smoking super skunk and they come so desensitised to crime because they’re playing these video games, it’s really, really scary,” he added, no doubt mentally working out how much it’d cost to hire a couple of security guards. Thanks, Noel. For your next task, can you outline what’s causing the global financial slowdown in two bite size sentences?

  • nice one Kevin you moron.

    us brits love them cos we would rather listen to a real rock band instead of Sum 41, Blink 182, green day or any of that garbage. or all the rap nonesense that they are churning out. R & B /???? R & B is rhythm and blues. R&B nowadays has nothing to do with rhythm and blues.

  • I’ve never understood why you Brits love Oasis so much. Just about everything that flows from these two yankers mouths is pure garbage.

    That being said…knife crime? I have experienced in my life the best way to protect oneself from being a victim of knife crime is by carrying a big gun. A Colt .45 or Ruger .357 Magnum normally does the trick. Right on my hip. šŸ™‚

  • Eazy Peazy.
    Banker’s greed (leading to the crash in housing values) and rising consumption in the developing world. Easy as that!
