Primark Pandemonium

I remember the IKEA riot, but I missed this more peaceful event - the opening of Primark's Oxford Street store. Lordy. Talk about the barbarians at the gates - it's worse than the Scout jumble sale.

"Barbarians?" I think you're being rather kind.

They must know there's a recession looming.

Primark? Am I missing something?

There is something a lot of the Oxford St Primark surge have in common with the majority of the IKEA rioters.

I wonder if anyone can spot what it is...

Poor taste in fashion and homeware...?

They're all trying to escape having you rub yourself against their backsides. I've read about your sort.

Spud, I'm hurt by your accusation!

And the common factor is something quite noticeable - that we are not supposed to notice. At least not if we are a journalist writing about the two events.

Yes, there are bound to be some very ample female bottoms surging around in sale scrums these days as you have doubtless experienced. And, no, it generally isn't polite to talk about it.

Be fair. Three people were killed in the Saudi IKEA riot.

Ive got no problem with ample female bottoms surging around. In fact I can think of few sights I would find pleasanter.
