A student who was spotted urinating on a war memorial sparked outrage and a police investigation today.

The incident happened during an organised pub crawl involving up to 1,000 students during freshers' week in Southampton.

The man was seen to urinate on the cenotaph, a memorial to those from the area who died in the First and Second World Wars.

The pub crawl last Thursday was set up and stewarded by party organiser Carnage UK.

Catherine Kitchener, county manager for the Royal British Legion in Hampshire, said: "It's today's society and it's different from societies gone past and it seems it is more acceptable to the younger generation to spill out on to the streets.

"I think it's quite sad, I would hope that students would embrace the idea that the memory of those who had made the ultimate sacrifice should always be treated with respect.

"Hopefully, in hindsight, the student might feel some regret."



I was pretty sure there was a thread on this from last year, when something similar happened. The search function didn't really help me though, and I couldn't find anything.

Anyway, so yeh, as soon as I saw the title to this article I knew Carnage would have something to do with it. Thoughts?

If you gotta go you gotta go but surely there are better places to urinate, like a wall for example. Perhaps he was too inebriated to see that it was a war memorial that he was peeing on?

He was pissed and probably didn't know what he was doing.

Will obviously regret in hindsight.

Let's get some perspective, it's not like he threw a cat in a bin.

Actually, is there an existing scale of minor incidents which cause major public outrage? I wonder where this lies in terms of, say, the cat-binner and Andrew Sachs' voicemail.

I read an article the other day about a woman that did the same thing to a memorial in Blackpool. Except she apparently had sex up against it first.

Last year there was a witchhunt against the guy who did it. Whatever my comments were that time around stand firm here.

As you say, no surprise it was on Carnage.

[Daily Mail] It's people like this that the Death sentence should be brought back for. He's insulting not only OUR LADS, but the memory of Princess Diana and more importantly Jade Goody. He's also giving us all Cancer. [/Daily Mail]

Makes me think that he had a beef with an estate agent then and it was actually an act of corporate sabotage,

It was clearly an act of political commentary about how the government is effectively pissing on our soldiers by not doing enough to look after them.
