You and your group of mates down The Wheatsheaf finally had enough of Brian, and told him to piss off and find some other group to inflict himself  and his horrible opinions on.

It was a shame really as he used to be a great guy. He had plenty of banter and a good attitude too. He knew all about football and cricket and was great company really. He was Bri and he just really fitted in.

But for some months now his extreme views had begun to worry you all. He just seemed to have changed his take on politics and he’d become much more extreme. It was a worry with him shouting his mouth off in the crowded pub and not caring who heard what he said or who he was offending. You were all got concerned that others might think the group had the same opinion.

On last Thursday’s lads’ night, when confronted by Steve, he freely admitted that he’d been reading online hate-filled propaganda and then half-hinted that he might just be prepared to stop ‘standing by and take some positive action.’

It was obvious that whatever he had been exposing himself to on the Internet had radicalised him. He was becoming dangerous. He had to go.

And yet to be totally fair the group gave him one last chance to renounce the new creed he was following, but when he refused point-blank to stop reading The Daily Mail Online and buying the paper in print it was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Brian is out of your group and you all feel cleansed and re-energised as a result.
