A MAN has been lecturing friends about various injustices as though he is the first person to have thought about them, it has emerged.
Graphic designer Martin Bishop, 26, frequently rants at friends and colleagues as if issues like racism and poverty are completely new concepts to them.
Friend Nikki Hollis said: “I’m glad Martin went on about the plight of refugees in the pub last night, because otherwise I’d have completely missed that massive humanitarian crisis.
“It’s not that I disagree with him, I just object to him implying he’s the only one who cares about global warming or sex trafficking and everyone else thinks it’s a jolly good idea.
“Today he put a story about famine victims on Facebook with the comment, ‘We have to do something, people!!!’. That definitely made me rethink my pro-starvation views.”
Bishop said: “It’s not easy having a social conscience. At lunch I was telling everyone about Indian people getting dysentery from bathing in raw effluent and it was as if they didn’t want to know.
“Fortunately I’m an incredibly decent and principled guy, so I’m not going to stop telling people that things like racism and homophobia are bad.”
