Pass me the Cluebat

One of the BBC's voter's panel


Name: Paul Holdsworth
Age: 19
Lives: Aberystwyth, Wales

"At the moment the US is able to get away with a lot of actions that I find appalling, simply because there is no political block powerful enough to challenge it.

I see Europe as a vital structure representing people who share a more common sense and ethical view of the world...

The European Union can do a lot for its citizens but only if it is handed more power.

Just that stupid student grin makes me want to smack him - and the more I read the more I want to see his teeth meet his sphincter, the pretty way down.


"The European Union can do a lot for its citizens but only if it is handed more power."

Yeah, just hand the government more power...yeah that's what we need to do...you're right, smack him good for me too.

Yes let's create a large EU military force and then when the bad Americans want to invade another peaceful, free, democratic country we can send the student conscripts (like the one pictured) off to fight them. I appreciate with such recruits we might not have much success on the battlefield, but it might help solve other problems.

I'll hold him down, you dig him!

I don't know whether Mr. H is studying sosiology or liberal arts, but clearly he is the sort of student waste of space wot is responcible for the introduction of top-up fees for real students.

Well the US are just demons aren't they I mean...

Isn't that just terrible!!!! No wonder our students are up in arms against America and its allies. Starngely I haven't heard any of this from the BBC either! (These facts are from the US DoD)

He's a plonker to put it mildly but you know - that's whats happens when you read the Guardian and the drip, drip, drip of anti-us/uk propaganda gets mixed up in his dopey little brain with reality!

Another reason to make students pay for their own "edukashun"

I hope the last course is how to say "Do you want fries with that?"

And, of course, he's Welsh.

I will ignore Mr Spence's comment as it is rather idiotic. He lives and studies in Wales, that doesn't make him welsh.

I will add though that we have two of young Master Holdsworth's peers in our office and they are just as clueless.

Of course nbc is right, living and studying in Wales doesn't make him Welsh. Clueless, though, is a perfect desciption of the lad.

Why am I reminded of the famous line in a sitcom - "Tim? Tim? Nice, but dim!" Only here it is more applicable as "Paul? Paul? Hopelessly lacking in intelligence!"

Wot do you expect from a 19-year old who hears nothing but that sort of drivel [ or bumph ] from his tutors and mates all day long.....he's learned to be a very good parrot !!

I totally agree. Mr Holdsworth is evidently nothing more than a clueless, propaganda - repeating parrot with pretty blue and pink feathers. The value of a 'sosiology' degree cannot be underestimated, as it is clearly 'responcible' for all of the ills in todays society.
Kids today, eh?

Well I think that mr.holdsworth has a gorgeous smile.

Everyone has the right to have their own opinions and you shouldn't want to hit them because of it.

So there. :p

well. i think paul is awesome. apart from the communist crap. and the EU crap. but he's more a nice well rounded sort of socialist.....

as per rob read's comment:

i study at aberystwyth, and for your information, paul is not welsh, he is in fact from birmingham. now take your nationalistic, rascist, irritating, foolish conclusion jumping somewhere else you annoying twat born of a pubic louse with an alcohol problem.
