My thinking was wouldn't break the windows
Razor blades are so expensive I would love to be able to get some free just by carefully removing a sticker, especially if they were Gillete Fusion.
ive heard/read about razor blades in potatoes chucked at/by fascists. Fascists faces being slashed with razorblades by 'Jewish communists' in the good old days or Oswald Morissey (aka the boy with his head up his arse).
Peeling the stickers is a pain in the arse anyway. Keying them works and you would avoid any potential razor blades. I just do this.
When I was a young person, a long time ago, we heard stories of 'bad boys' who would sew razor blades under the lapels of their jackets, so that if you grabbed then in a fight you would slice open your hands. It seems razor blades have a particular place in urban mythology, if I was more into art theory I would suggest this may be a Bunuel influenced fear of the damage a razor blade can do. Apart from Peaky Blinders, I don't think anyone really used razor blades, as opposed to razors, as a weapon.
There is something peculiarly off putting about the kind of cuts caused by a very sharp blade like a razor or a Stanley.
I vaguely remember Birmingham City fans song to "hi-ho silver lining" something about "I see your boots are shining, razor blades in your crombie lining"
As for blades under stickers and posters - I've taken hundreds down over the years. Most of them can't even stick them up properly to begin with so I think the razor blade story was definitely fabrication.
ETA: "And it's hi-ho Birmingham City, Everywhere we go there's agro. I see your boots are shining, Razor blades in your crombie lining"
I hear the tommy Robinson ones aren’t the sharpest.
Razor blades under stickers is 100% true. For those that have a family history in the great battle you would not even be asking the question.
I first heard this rumour in 1977. To be frank Tower Hamlets was then festooned with NF stickers ( and some posters)which I and others assiduously and systemically torn down ( There was also actions to remove NF slogans from railway bridges in the borough) and never experienced any gashes or severed fingers during all of that
Were you with Aslan or the White Witch?
I would wager that my Mum was dealing with nazi skins when you were in short pants, but OK.
ETA: Also her Dad died in the 2nd World War, so I guess that is a family history right there if we're getting into it. He was dealing with a bit more than stickers though tbf.
It's funny that it's just you and that one example from the 70s quoted upthread though. The only proper anti-fascist in the village again, eh?
I don't find it funny to come out with such tedious and attempted ridiculing remarks. But then again I have seen it all before.
How would you know ?
Maybe don’t bring people’s families into it if you’re triggered so easily?
The Peaky Blinders stuff is allegedly a myth as well
How can I now watch my favourite TV series? Next you will be telling me there was never a place called Westoros,
Newsflash: not everything on TV is gospel
Westeros up the way from wrexham
Good link, I watched half an hour of it and sent him $500 as he says he will pray for an cure for my arthritic knee and a guaranteed place in heaven.
Is this you The Flying Pig?
As you never tíre of telling us. No one does it half so well as you, yet all you do is carp from the sidelines. Come down from the skies flying pig and lead us to glorious victory
No but he is one of my relatives.
Always thought he was a bit of a bore. Ooh, look at the tumbleweed rolling over my back garden...
I regularly removed fascist stickers from lampposts in Camden and never encountered a razor blade. Doesn't mean it never happened but I never encountered one.
The rumour concerning razor blades in water chutes still makes me feel funny to this day
This sounds like a variation of the "Razor blades melted into the bottom of water slides" myth.
