A MASSIVE, country-wide fist fight could be the solution to Britain’s problems, experts have claimed.
As the country is overrun with at least eight types of street violence, new research shows that a giant, consequence-free scrap could actually be beneficial to the national psyche.
Julian Cook, a sociologist at Reading University, said: “There’s nothing like a good punch-up to clear the air, whether there’s a serious ongoing family problem or someone’s just looked at you funny in the street.
“Statistically, 74% of fights end in the participants being best mates, even if only until the following weekend.
“This country is beset with economic strife, civil disorder and poor customer service. How much easier life would be if the aggrieved parties could just knock the bloody shit out of each other without the tiresome legal ramifications.
“Not with bats or chains or anything – just fists. And only for a day.”
He addded: “Imagine the reconciliation that would follow. Violence is definitely the answer. Especially for the little, niggly things.”
Mother-of-one Emma Bradford said: “My first port of call would be everyone involved in the ‘Isa Isa Baby’ Halifax advert.”
Former football hooligan, Tom Logan, added: “I like hitting people. Or, if this is for a Channel 5 documentary, I used to like hitting people but am now a reformed character.
“I blame prevailing economic and weather conditions and Mrs Thatcher for people like me. You can read more of such opinions in my book Crazy Bastard, which is all about the redemptive power of pacifism and in no way lingers on the stuff I did with nail guns in lurid detail with full colour photos.”
