I have just been watching Bad Ladís Army and it just occurred to me. These boys are villains, some violent. And now they have been trained to kill! As the sergeant said to one Bad Lad after a rather over-zealous Bayonet attack ďI really saw the killer in you. Iím really proudĒ. Great! Just donít let him back on our streets! Still I suppose itís more about channelling aggression, which can only be a good thing.
Which brings us to the boxing. Just before the boxing match, one of the lads said he was going to rearrange his opponentís face. He threatened it was going to end up like Picasso.
Now I donít mind a threat, but having seen a portrait of Picasso, I can say he was quite a good looking lad. So unless the boxer meant to go into the ring and give him a facial, I assume he meant he was going to end up like a Picasso, now that makes more of threat!
But to be honest there are worse to end up like than a Picasso. At least you will still have an eye- it might be in a strange place, but you will still have one.
But, instead, can you imagine ending up like a Jackson Pollock!
