Yelling News: A man loudly ranting on a packed bus, who was initially dismissed as a lunatic, is now starting to make a lot of sense to many of the other passengers.

The dishevelled-looking man, who boarded the rush-hour bus in central Manchester at around 5.40 last night, was at first labelled ‘a nutter’ and ignored by other passengers.

But as he continued loudly ranting, his ideas about the way the local council was mis-managing its annual budget – followed by much broader shouting about how the UK as a whole was being driven into the ground by a ‘meglomaniac toff’ – started to make sense to a large number of people on the bus.

“I thought this guy was a raving nutter when he got on the bus,” said one eyewitness. “But after about ten minutes of his ranting I started to think maybe he has a point. I think a few people who liked his ideas asked him for his phone number when he got off.”

“It just goes to show the powerful effect the coalition government has had on the population of the UK,” said another passenger. “Now we can all relate to the angry shouting lunatic on the bus.”
