Congratulations. You can stick a poster up and take a picture of it.

bullseye2121
Streets of England? Im guessing all of them are in London. Also i doubt theres one on every street. You say Everywere in England yet i have not seen a single one and i travel alot. I guess you only go to London.

theshale
'The streets of England are infiltrated with a guerilla poster campaign for the book, The Evil Empire: 101 Ways That England Ruined The World'

Hahaha! Brilliant! that's the biggest laugh I've had this week! I love the that you've taken just TWO posters and photographed them in various locations around London!
Then chucked in some lame MTV quick cut editting to make it look flash...Che Guevera you aint!
1 out of 10 for effort - must try harder!

britishreparations
Actually, Shale.

This is a city wide campaign. We've already received letters from both the Royal Borough's of Kensington and Chelsea to remove our fly posting or face penalties.

Wrong again.

theshale
Sure you did pal.

I got a letter from Elvis last week, asking me not to fly my UFO so low over his house next time - Apparrently it keep's waking his pet Sea Serpent up!

cmatcmextra
Is it a country-wide or city-wide campaign? You keep contradicting yourself! In the description it said "streets of England" and not you say "streets of London". Make up your bloody mind!

theshale
Oh, I love the title of this video too...'YOU CAN'T ESCAPE IT'

hah, Escape it!? I can't even fucking find it!

britishreparations
hahaha.

That's because all the copies have been sold!

TrueblueBilly
What all 3 of them?

TrueblueBilly
Thats actually illegal.

TrueblueBilly
goto . richmond. gov. uk / fly_ posting without the spaces "Fly posting is illegal and those caught doing it or having their product advertised on them, can be fined up to 1,000 a poster"

i'm please you filmed yourself breaking British law you have also broke youtubes code of conduct by not posting videos showing dangerous or illegal acts.

chrisiscool28
the guy who made this video is an absolute fucking cunt. What does this video prove? absolutely nothing.

britishreparations
It's proving that this is happening, Chris.

theshale
Precisely 'What' is happening?????????

cmatcmextra
@TrueblueBilly: Good one. So this is a racist campaign which spreads through illegal means - sort of like Hitler and his Nazis.

TrueblueBilly
Easy solution is for the good people of London to report these illegal poster to their local council one the council are swamped down with call they will be forced to act and impose a fine of up to 1000 per poster.

britishreparations
Oh yea, we're Nazis. If anything, the majority of you Brits are proving how absolutely daft you all are.

YOU ARE NOT A FUCKING RACE.

Yes, there is a race of "True Britons". Thing is, there isn't much of them left.

The Fact of the matter is that there's been a long history on your lands of killing off the indigenous populations.

TrueblueBilly
The Jews where not a race, they where an ethnic group the same as the British but didn't Hitler also blame Germany's problems on the Jewish people which is kind of like blaming all the USA problems on the British.

britishreparations
Sorry, the British are not an Ethnic group.

TrueblueBilly
Really than why dose the EU,UK National Statistics and the United states embassy in London (as i found out last year) list White British as an ethnic group?, your moron as-well as a racist pure and simple i suggest you look up the term.

Racist: hatred or intolerance of another race or ethnic group, steven your digging an even bigger hole.

britishreparations
Well, Britains as a WHOLE are not.. those of the original bloodline are.

TrueblueBilly
Steven its obvious your targeting white British in the book and whats this shit about "original bloodline"? no race is of an original bloodline you sound like Hitler or KKK banging on about an Aryan race are we getting close to the truth now steven? do you consider yourself of "the original bloodline"?, do you run about in a little white hood?.

britishreparations
Billy, the point I was trying make was that it's silly to say we're being racist as there are very few true Brits actually left. Much like Native Americans.

A modern "Briton" is made up of genes from all kinds of different races so it's unreasonable to categorize "Britons" as a race. Much like Americans.

As I've said before: We may be being Xenophobic, but definitely not racist.

TrueblueBilly
Calm down there don't burst a blood vessel, its good you admit that your Xenophobic you have taken the first step in dealing with the fact your racist, because lets face it anyone who thinks that a persons nationality is dictated by their blood genetics or colour of skin has a very racist view on the world, kind of like Hitler and what said about Aryan race, try looking up Xenophobia in Germany.

britishreparations
My point is that Nationality DOES NOT dictate race or blood genetics.

Saying negative things about a COUNTRY (like England) DOES NOT mean you are being RACIST.

Get your head straight!

theshale
Here we go again...
How many times do we have to fucking tell you, England as a country no longer exists - England is a part of four nations that make up the country of Great Britain!

And if it's England you're trying to be Negative about, why is your Organisation called BRITISH Reparations????

See, this is why your whole argument has no basis in reality, when you can't even decide who you're supposed to be demanding money off!

britishreparations
Well than why does the English Football team use a red and white flag?

theshale
Precisely because they're the ENGLISH football team, and the Colours of the Flag of St George are white and red. just like the Scottish football team's colours are blue and white, after the flag of St Andrew.

There is no British Football team, because each nation in GB has it's own national football league.

britishreparations
That's because each part of GB is it's own nation.

Why does Ireland have it own currency? Scotland?

theshale
Great Britain, in case you didn't know, is also known as the UNITED Kingdom! four nations united to form the country of Great Britain.
Northern Ireland and Scotland have their own versions of the pound, but it is still UK Pound Sterling, and valid as a form of currency throughout the UK.

Talking of money - who do you want your free money off now, the British or the English?

britishreparations
I think I'd like to you to personally write me a check.

theshale
sure, give me your address then

britishreparations
It's 10 Downing, Shale.

TrueblueBilly
Heres the top 6 famous Xenophobe's
1. Hitler
2.Stalin
3.Pol Pot
4.Milosevic
5.britishreparations aka Steven A. Grasse
6.Kim Jong-il
Sorry to put you before Milosevic but you should be happy as you rank higher than Kim Jong-il, yeah!!!!!

britishreparations
The fact that you all think you're talking to the fucking Author of the book only proves what retards you all are.

You think that Steven A. Grasse has the time to come on here and bicker with all of you morons?

HA!

theshale
Very true, Steven Grasse hasn't got the time to talk with us, the very people he's trying to make money off - Steven Grasse is busy making up more fairy tales for his next children's book.

Hence this is why we're dealing with the monkey and not the organ grinder.

Out of curiousity, how much is he paying you by the way???

TrueblueBilly
I also knew this wasn't Steven A. Grasse as he far to busy burning crucifixes but after all it did take you 5 minutes thinking it up.

theshale
Then in that case you need to re-direct your 'campaign' to the Germans and the French!!!
Germans for their Saxon invasion of the British Isles, and then the French for their later Norman invasion, why aren't you having a go at them as their the true culprits.

I'll tell you why not - because that would be rediculous! just like your entire arugment is!

britishreparations
And then the "English" finished them off, Shale.

theshale
So your saying it's the English fault for driving out an invader from their own lands!?!? - you realise the utter stupidity of what you've just said don't you!?

AND...if you knew you're history (which you clearly dont) we didn't finish them off! the Saxons and later the Normans settled here and down the generations became part of the English people, they are part of our genetic makeup now

britishreparations
Well, you've just proved more points.

You're not fucking "British". You're as much BRITISH I as fucking am!

theshale
My passport and Birth Certificate says I'm British - yours dont! end of discussion.

And what gives you the right to act like some Moral Crusader and start sticking your noses into other people's affairs!?

Fucking Yanks! you think you've a god given right to lord it over other people.

britishreparations
You think WE act like we've a god given right? You're British, remember?

theshale
I dont see any Brits trying to demand money from the USA for highly dubious claims of oppression! I don't see Brits writing books of lies, racial slurs, exaggerations, and slander about the USA and trying to sell it to make a quick buck! I dont see Brits on the streets on US cities asking questions and then editing the answers into promotional propaganda!

theshale
Incidentially, We all know that if someone did try and do something like your doing now on the Streets of any US city - they'd get the shit kicked out of them and be told to 'Go back to Russia, Commie!'

Lucky for you we're such a tolerant people, because if the roles were reversed and you were doing this on thr streets in the US, you'd still be in Intensive Care ward right now.

cmatcmextra
Ahhh that's super. Did you know there are only a few handfuls of "True Americans" left and there all running around in flip-flops with mud on their faces? And no your not Nazis, you're NEO-Nazis, you little ragamuffin.

BTW, just to let you know, most Americans are descendants of the people who destroyed the Red Indians: should you be fined?

britishreparations
Well, Cmat. Yes. Native Americans are a Ethnic group.

We're not Neo-Nazis. And I don't see how you can make such a claim.

Yea, the Brits, Spanish and others started exterminating the "Indians" and we finished the job.

It's a shame.

Who put the gun in out hand, so to speak?

theshale
Guns don't kill people - People kill people.

Nonbody told you to finish them off - but you went about that with gusto!!! - erm...Blankets laced with cholora anyone?

britishreparations
Difference is, ask an American. We've fucking owned up to the horrible things we've done to the NAs.

The point is that you've done the SAME SHIT, if not worse (Scotland?) and act as if it's fucking AOK.

theshale
Scotland!? SCOTLAND?! since when did the anyone ever commit mass genocide of the Scots?
There are over 10 million Scots alive and well and living their lives in Scotland today - can you say the same about the native Americans in your country?!
And don't give me that 'Oppression' crap - the whole act of Union between England and Scotland was brought about by a Scottish king!

britishreparations
England's first act of colonization was to incorporate Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

theshale
Then Explain to me how this act of colonisation by England over Scotland, was brought about by a Scottish King?

theshale
Just because you've watched Braveheart a couple of times, it doesn't make you a expert on the history of the British Isles all of a sudden.

britishreparations
Shale, Mel Gibson knows his shit!

theshale
Mel Gibson knows jack shit!

Mel Gibson knows how to make an entertaining Hollywood film, but as for sticking to historical facts - Mel Gibson knows nothing!

Mel Gibson is a drunken anti-semite, who wouldn't know a historical fact if it ran him over in a 4x4.

britishreparations
The Mel Gibson thing was a joke.

cmatcmextra
"The point is that you've done the SAME SHIT, if not worse (Scotland?) and act as if it's fucking AOK."

Did you pay them 33trillion to make up for it? No!!! So why should we?!

britishreparations
Here's the difference between the two cultures (<-- note: not "races").

I'M on here condemning all the horrible shit the US did to it's native peoples.

YOU (this means ALL of you commenting on this page) refuse to admit any wrong doing and even act like it was OK to do all of this stuff.

See the difference, CMAT?

theshale
We are fully aware as a nation, that there are events in our past that are pretty bad - we know that! We were taught it in School for Christssake! We are also aware that there are events to be proud of too, so we have a pretty balanced view on our role as a nation in history...YOUR BOOK IS NOT A BALANCED VIEW!

theshale
Okay, confession time - I actually found your 'book' in my lunch hour today and thumbed through it...I have a few points I want to raise....

theshale
Point 1: The British believe in Serpents and Sea Monsters!? Okay, firstly that's a completely bollocks generalisation, and even if we did - how does that make us Evil?

theshale
Point 2: They are Pagan!

Bollocks again! We are a Secular society that encourages and nurtures all faiths and religions

theshale
Point 3: We don't 'Get' Hip Hop culture!?

Riiight, and a middle aged, middle class, White American is going to tell me all about Hip Hop culture is he?

Prick!

theshale
Point 4: Britain is screwing up the War on Terror!

Now we see the true colours here! Clearly Mr Grasse is the type of redneck American who subscribes to the view of 'All Muslim's are terrorists' viewpoint, and the old US addage of 'Kill em all and let god sort em out'.
USA screwed it up when they decided to Invade Iraq - when we and evrybody else was urging them not to!

theshale
Point 5: they have bad personal hygene!

And tell me how that isn't a racist slur?

point 6: They invented the plague.

How can Britain 'Invent' a plague, when it's origins were in the middle east?

I could go on and on, I found so much of this frankly laughable dross on each page that it was just rather sad after a while.

TrueblueBilly
We may have put a gun in your hand, but no one forced you to pull the trigger.

britishreparations
The same could be said with you, Billy.

TrueblueBilly
Take a deep breath in then breathe britishreparations, your getting too excited and along with all those big macs you consume i don't want you having a heart attack.

Your also right Saying negative things about a country dose not make you a racist but the prejudice, stereotyping and preconceived conceptions based on little on no truth of its people amounts to an racist view.

britishreparations
I'm a non-racist vegan who thinks you're a fucking moron for loosing his shit over a book.

theshale
'Mien Kampf' was just a book too!

maxageddon
you're really going to compare evil empire to mein kampf.........congrats, you are a raging douche

theshale
Well here's a couple of things both books have in common...
1. They both deal in lies, exaggerations, racial slurs, and generalisations.
2. They both try and blame the world's problems on one specific group/race/nation.

theshale
Granted, I haven't read Mein Kampf for a while now (last time was studying for my A-Level history exams in 1991) and I didn't understand all of the rhetoric in it back then.
But even back then I could see that the book was a platform for a propaganda hate message...remind you of anything yet?

I'd call this book, the Mien Kampf for people who's reading skills has never taken them past 'Where's Waldo'

theshale
oh, and Max...

If you want to be taken a bit more seriously, then I'd think about dropping the Name Calling if I were you...it really isn't doing you any favours in terms of intellectual standing on here.
In fact, if I'm being honest, it makes you look kinda weak and silly!

just a thought.

maxageddon
Whatever, flinging a douche, pussy, et cetera out insights more comments, inane or not. Simple fact of life. And the comparison of this to mein kampf is fucking rediculous, you're only taking it to these lines because you are apparently dense enough to take it seriously and as a personal attack

theshale
So you're saying that this book's demands for 33trillion pounds from the British people for our supposed 'Crimes against humanity' is actually a joke!? not to be taken seriously? hmmm - I think Britishreparations might disagree.

maxageddon
i guess you are just that dumb then, maybe if you actually read the book you might actually know what you're talking about

theshale
But I HAVE read this 'Book' Max.
And there wasn't one historical, political, social or moral truth about us The British contained in it! - If it was meant to be some satirical, humorous poke at us, then it failed there too I'm afraid - because it just read like a collection of tired old cliches, stereotypes and generalisations...in short, lazy writing and kinda lame where it tries to be cleaver and funny.

theshale
I note you still haven't answered my question about the book's demands for 33trillion pounds from the British people for our supposed 'Crimes against humanity'?
That's just a joke too, right?!

maxageddon
Yes, it is you dink, any there are historical accuracies in the book, but masked with dry satire....something id imagine brits would pick up....way to fail

theshale
Hey, a comedian can't blame the audience for not laughing if his material is shit and comedic delivery is none existant, now can he!? same goes with this 'book'!

The thing with Satire is you take a truth and make a humorous parody of it - but you need a truth to start with!

maxageddon
hey not my fault the you refuse to admit that no brit has ever done a wrong, blind patiortism is crap no matter where your are, I don't think you're going to change your mind no matter what, and this is probably going to lead into a whole lot of we's and you's blaming me for evey american act of injustice, when you should be looking iside yourself and maybe come up with an independant thought

theshale
Nope, wrong again Max.

I and most people in the country are well aware of our country's past, all the negative and all the positives - we generally have a very balanced view of our standing in world affairs.

What 'we' find unaccecptable, is somebody trying to make a fast buck at our exspense through a bunch of out n out lies!

maxageddon
the fact that you think british reparations is real exposes you for the complete tard that you are, think about it, what is the author's professional background

theshale
failed Advertising Exec for Saatchi & Saatchi last I heard.

So the book is bullshit, that's what 'WE'VE' been saying since day one!

But someone's gone to an awful lot of trouble for one supposedly 'Satirical' book, don't you think?

Actually...DO you think?

maxageddon
woah there crazy twist from the old brit, and actualy, he's a successful independant advertiser. Its somewhat funny that for all your lambasting, you still don't understand how any of this is working, and instead just act like a complete douche. The book isn't bullshit, its comical, its not full of outright lies, but jokes and jabs, you only think its bullshit because you seem to feel that you have some respobsability to the nation you claim as your own, some come one bring some more im wrongs

theshale
And the comical demand for money? how's that fit into all this?

Incidentially, I notice BritishReparations is strangley quiet tonight.

maxageddon
a lot of people have been quiet as of late, the call for money tops the fucking joke, think about it, if you, as an individual which might escape you, are going for it, might as well go for broke

theshale
Riight.

Seems like a helluva an expensive undertaking though, for what's basically a collection of lame stereotypes that had their sell by date circa 1980!?

You guy's are still watching Benny Hill episodes right?

maxageddon
has benny hill ever been funny, nope...i can't believe I have to walk you through this entire process, you mihgt need to go back to school, it's not an expensive undertaking when revenue for the book is coming in, creating hype around it = book sales, it doesnt have be a best seller to cover things, and please I am one person, your pathetic jabs at american stereotypes don't work on an individual level

TrueblueBilly
britishreparations/steven we might be morons but you abuse the privilege, see the thing is we can afford to look like morons because guess what? we are not trying to sell a shitty book.

britishreparations
We're not TRYING to sell the book, Billy.

We're selling them.

Loads of them.

TrueblueBilly
look you don't have to prove your sales figures to me i don't care, but i must ask the question why you are telling me this seems thing are not as good as you make out, your also the fool that thinks Scotland, Ulster, England and Wales have their own currency.

theshale
Suffice to say, after actually seeing this book now its clearly written as a kind of joke! We sent them Sasha Baron Cohen in the form of Borat to show them up for the nation of Insular, idiotic buffoons they are, and they do this as their reply to it! only it's not even a fraction as funny as Borat, and has only served to stir up even more animosity towards them, and shown that they can't laugh at themselves, and miss the point when try to poke fun at others.

maxageddon
why do you still insist on using "we" when describing everything, you didn't do shit, Sasha Baron Cohen did that onb his own, way to take another's credit pussy

theshale
Because Sasha Baron Cohen is a Brit - hence the 'We' - How can I take the credit from yet another Brit Comedy genius showing y'all how it's done!?

maxageddon
its still not you doing anything, so does that mean that since american troops are in iraq, i am there as well, no it doesnt. Drop the royal we, douche

theshale
Back to name calling again already?

maxageddon
stop acting like a douche, and maybe it will stop, you (plural since you seem to like to take personal credit for everything an englishman does) need to stop talking down to everyone, any maybe you can toss the crown of captain dickstain back down to bullshit, who has been oddly silent lately


theshale
erm...yeah...whatever

TrueblueBilly
Yeah thats right you are selling a lot of books, so many in-fact you not even in this weeks top 100 in the charts, even (97)Piers Morgan, (50)Grow Your Own Veg (15) James Martin - Desserts, have all sold more books than you hahahahah fucking hell what a joke.

rulebritannia1
you probably put them there, no i know supports the book

britishreparations
All you know are a bunch of pseudo-racist twats, Rule.

TrueblueBilly
It still doesn't excuse you breaking our laws, amazon are selling your book at almost 50% the RRP after only a month on the shelf seems its not doing as-well as you make out.

rulebritannia1
Really then that's more then you will ever have, I am a well educated and cultured
Gentlemen unlike your self who wallows in self delusion and hate propped up on lies and distorted views on life, grow up and move on

OldhamAthletic87KTF
Please, stop the excitement, i cant take it anymore ... Oh the joy!

DeadeyeRob
Sorry lads but i have noticed that when ever somebody blames the Americans for 'wiping out native Americans' and 'Death penalty' the only defensive response i see is 'Well you did it first! Who put the gun in our hand?'

What the hell response is that! In the words of starwars "Whos the more foolish? The fool or the fool who does likewise?"

This book is written by a man who is not a historian, but a sales expert. There is no logical or historical truth just a scapegoat.

theshale
Amen to that Bob...

Couldn't have put it better myself.
