    16 .... Pet hates.... Liars and bullshitters in general. People on rallies who look down on some others for being new to the scene, or their choice of style etc. These people have obviously forgot that if people didn't get together with different views in the late 70s/early 80s, then the scene wouldn't be what it is today. Newcomers have to brought on board for the scene to go on. Being around the Mod/Skinhead scene in Glasgow from 1978 has taught me that.
