senior sees off two thugs putting hurt on one.

Do not get a lot of stories like this so like to pass on.

Might seem a bit weird and maybe I have missed other examples but, over the last 6 months or so with other stories dealing with people who have fought back and been lucky, it just seems as though the majority of them have been older folk like this fellow, or else women and then no spring chickens either.

They picked on the wrong pensioner! Boxer, 77, who trained with Henry Cooper, beats up two club-wielding thugs after home attack

· Michael Mather dusted off his fighting skills to send to thugs packing
· He smashed the nose of one of the yobs after they ‘walloped’ him on head

By RICHARD HARTLEY-PARKINSON
In his younger days, pensioner Michael Mather was used to sparring in the ring with boxing legend Henry Cooper.
But more recently he has dusted off his fighting skills to put up a fight against two brutal thugs who attacked him outside his home in Ilford, Essex.
The 77-year-old was hit on the head with a wooden club as they tried to force their way into his house while he loaded his car.
Proving he can still throw a good punch, Mr Mather hit one of them in the face and the pair, in their late teens, fled the scene.

Mr Mather spent his youth training with post-war heavyweight boxing icon Henry Cooper and East End gangsters, the Kray twins.
Mr Mather said: ‘One of the boys walloped me on the head with a two foot log and it started bleeding. I was so angry I swore at them and told them I was going to kill them.

‘They then tried to push past me to get into the house.
‘I went to hit one of the boys in the solar plexus with my left and then with my right hand hit him on the nose and it just burst which I do feel a bit guilty about.’
Mr Mather was on his way to referee a local football tournament when he was confronted by his attackers.
‘I was putting my ref’s gear into the car and I didn’t really notice the boys,’ he said. ‘I heard a voice saying “can I use your toilet mister?” but I told them it was out of order,’ he said.

They thugs insisted that Mr Mather let them into his house and attacked him from behind after he turned his back.
‘After I hit him the boys ran off,’ he added.
‘I assume it was the sight of me with blood over my face which was so thick I couldn’t see through my glasses.’
He was then taken to Queen’s Hospital, Romford.

He said: ‘When the nurse at the hospital was stitching my head back together all I could think about was getting to the football match as I didn’t want to let the boys down.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
