"Here's to his heroism, his straightforward belief in right and wrong, his support for law and order, and his willingness to give a good kicking to someone richly deserving it."
This shows what happens when terrorists take on more than they can chew. John Smeaton is a hero, but any Glaswegian in this situation would have done the same. As John so eloquently put it, "Glasgow does not accept this. We will set aboot ye."
"Only in Glasgow do suicide bombers need rescued from the locals by the police."
"John just surpassed himself on the National ITV news. The interviewer asked "What message do you have for the bombers" - he replied
"This is Glasgow we'll just set about you"
"John did an interview on cnn and they asked how he restrained the guy and he said "me and other folk were just tryin 2 get the boot in and some other guy banjoed him" !
Glasgow is a tough city. AQ should have second thoughts about trying again.
My new t-shirt slogan with a message for Islamic terrorists and other useless space occupiers: “We will set aboot ye.” With a picture of a boot.
Gotta love the wee keelies.
I want the steel toe caps on the OUTSIDE. Like those cowboy boots with sharp silver caps on the pointy parts.
Smeaton’s website and the pictures on it are a total scream. I liked him comeback to the Prime Minister! What a man, a real man.
IIRC, one of the Glasgow guys said he hurt his leg a bit.
Kicking one of the Al-Queda guys in the groin.
That warmed my heart!
Someone explain or point to a news story please what exactly happened to make this bloke famous. I must have missed the news flash...
Dr. Martins, best for a ringsend uppercut.
Thanks for the url, Angela lass. Good to get the background info on things.
Is that like a Glasgow kiss?
SPINNING round, fag in hand, the man dubbed Britain's answer to 24's Jack Bauer looked in shock at the mayhem unfolding before him. In front of John Smeaton, a Jeep Cherokee exploded into a roaring ball of flame. In his hand a half-smoked cigarette fizzled out as he stared aghast at the blazing carnage. "I ran up there to leather him. He was swinging at me, shouting Allah this and Allah that." John, 31, felt the white-hot blast from the inferno lick across his face. Astonished, he watched as a 6ft man stumbled from the wreckage and began to ATTACK police officers. "I just shouted, F***ing come on then' and dashed towards him," said John. "I didn't think there was no time. I just acted." Have-a-go hero John today reveals for the first time the full story of the Glasgow Airport terror attacks.
Not quite the same as a Glasgow Kiss, the Glasgow Kiss is a head butt to the bridge of the nose.
Getting banjoed is being struck on the head or face with extreme force. Getting banjoed usually resuslts in unconciousness.
