PostSubject: Check out this pillock!   Tue Feb 22, 2011 8:12 pm



In his suit and working as a banker by day, this man looks an unlikely superhero - but by night, he becomes 'The Statesmen' and fights crime on Britain's streets.

Dressed in a Union Flag T-shirt and with a black Zorro-style mask covering his eyes, he claims even his girlfriend is in the dark about his nocturnal activities - which is hard to believe, especially given his distinctive facial hair.

He tells her he is out playing poker on the four nights a week when he is trying to keep an eye on the underbelly of Birmingham.

The Briton is the latest to follow in the footsteps of the hit film Kick Ass, in which a teenage geek dresses as a superhero but ends up way over his head. Last month, it emerged Phoenix Jones from the U.S. had been dubbed the real-life Kick Ass after appointing himself as masked guardian of a Seattle suburb.

His British counterpart's outfit compares somewhat unfavourably with the American's but he claims to have foiled a drug dealer and prevented burglaries.

The former soldier in the Territorial Army, who wears a black mask, utility belt, Union Flag top, fingerless gloves, combat trousers and military boots, uses his skills as a trained pugilist.

And he shirks cutting-edge gadgets for a first aid kit, a torch to startle burglars and a notepad for writing down important information. A cheap mobile phone in case he needs to call support of the police completes his arsenal.

I seen this, since kick ass there's been loads of 'vigilantes' exposed in the paper, mainly from America. What's the betting that this kind of story will just encourage people to go out and cause shit just so a bloke in a inion jack shirt and a shit beard turns up.
