They filmed themselves inside. This suggests the caper wasn't thought through very well.
my home town keeping it classy
I love this. And living in a remote AF community that has a lidl, I would be pretty surprised if that was the one shop in that area, ehh......
Was there a poll?
It’s a fairly bleak part of the world. Much of the increase in employment in Dublin and the high participation in third education in Ireland misses out a lot of these neighbourhoods. But they’re full of good, decent people. It just takes something like this to kick off and it gets a curious crowd and it takes little to go in and lift six bottles of Perlenbacher. Pictures of these kids are all over Facebook and snapchat and the fact that there are some black kids amongst them has brought out a lot of nasty sentiment.
The local Centra (which is Budgens in England) had the shutters cut open and people went in and stole from it.
There were also rows upon rows of cars set on fire.
And some lads stole a dumper truck from a building site, filled it full of snowballs and went round pelting people.
I’d say what usually prevents such anarchy in these neighbourhoods is not normally the Gardaí but the community itself. The guards are largely toothless and absent. And with decent people taking shelter from the weather, the antisocial element had nobody to challenge them.
Yeah turns out most WC people are not veteran anarchists, who knew!
cunts not anarchist..
nicking the safe is one thing
the rest ...
Dunno...but knowing a fair few up there I'd say a lot of the 70000 residents of Tallaght are unimpressed by the sudden absence of their local Lidl.
also than their is stigma from being from parts of Dublin
and Thallaght/jobstown was already on the list before this
There’s an Iceland just down the road.
Whole world is ferile but it's a surprise when the dog backed into a corner bites. Lidl can afford to build another place and compensate workers in the meantime, but.....
The Iceland round the corner is probably doing alright, too.
Has anyone seen Sharon Osborne recently?
On a completely unrelated note.
Edit: or was that Asda?
When we went to Iceland a few years back, we saw adverts for Iceland in Iceland, in Iceland in Icelandic.
It was great. Probably the most meta piece of supermarket advertising I’ve encountered.
Sharon Osbourne wasn’t in them, mind.
They were in newspapers.
Aye they don't build Lidls in wastelands. We have one in Kirkwall (Orkney )but that's 15 miles from me. We have the cope and the squeezed wee shops with more expensive stuff. I was angry AF when the Tesco in Orkney stopped deliveries (other than online orders)out of concern for elderly and disabled folks people without cars etc but if someone drove into it with a John Deere and danced around the wreckage in the customary John Deere thong I would split my loyalties between the vandals and those hurt by TESCO equally!
One of these 'Icelands' is superfluous.
No it’s not. ‘We saw adverts for Iceland (the brand) in Iceland (a shop), in Iceland (the country) in Icelandic (the language)’
But the brand and the shop are the same thing...
for Iceland (the brand) in an Iceland (a shop), in Iceland (the country)
I bet you’re fun at parties.
the icelands also the other side of the town
come on your raid the tesco first if you were going that way
Don’t anyone mention buffalo.
I've heard the ones in New York can get a bit boisterous with each other.
I was on the fence but now I've read this sanctimonious bootlicker bullshit I'm 100% pro-robbers on this one.
If the staff have been fired they've been fired by Lidl who obviously don't care about the local community enough to pay their staff until the store can reopen. They've got a store every 400 yards, they could easily eat the cost of that if they wanted to.
Not if they are advertising their own brand products.
Very pleasing level of fastidiousness on here
Tell that to the locals who don't want this kind of shit happening.
This shower decided to burn their neighbours cars too... great fun.
It's SpookyFrank, possibly urban's biggest 'shake fist at the sky and ever other fucking thing possible' poster, best taken with a pinch of salt TBH.
World Politics?? Really??!
