Patricia Heaton blasts ‘UK’s Finest Socialists’ after son’s ‘World War Z’ ticket snub
Patricia Heaton took to Twitter Wednesday afternoon to voice her displeasure with “UK’s Finest Socialists” after a movie theater refused to let her son buy a ticket for “World War Z.” “What’s happening to England? #VueCinema won’t let us into World War Z because our son is 14! UK govt takes over parenting -idiot bureaucracy,” the “Everybody Loves Raymond” star said.
Brad Pitt’s apocalyptic film received a 15 age rating in the U.K., which means no one under 15 is permitted to purchase a cinema ticket or DVD, regardless of a guardian’s presence. “UK’s Finest Socialists: Vue movie theater/mid afternoon completely empty, won’t let us take our 14yr old to WorldWarZ,” the conservative actress added.
“UK Socialism: No more floats in local village feast ‘cuz they were forced to take out insurance- floats moved at 1/2 mile/hr!” Mrs. Heaton later tweeted. It is unknown what event she was referring to.

I hate that cunt sooo much. But that is beyond hypocritical. The UK ratings system is different to the US, and less lenient in a way - no "R" here.

What event could she possibly have been watching?

And since "Raymond" was barely shown in the UK, she couldn't pull the whole "Do you know who I am?" for fear of them saying, "Um... no?

What socialism has to do with movie ratings, let alone movie ratings in another country, is a mystery known only to teabagettes like Patty Heaton.
I thought they WANTED more oversight over godless Hollywood productions full of all that nasty sex 'n' violence.
Oh, wait -- they don't give a crap about violence.

If the policy in the UK is like that in the US, its not socialists who are making the rules, its the industry. Free market, baby. Because so many asshole parents are so eager to sue if their precious angels see something offensive, the industry has to protect itself.

I wish these republicans would just learn to obey the laws of other countries. They have no respect. Maybe we can ship them all to an island and give them food (we can "throw it over a fence" or something). Overpopulation will kill them off. #turnthetables.

Being one of her sons would be hell.

That would be hilarious, especially if her ticket checker was a rude chavette like Lauren from the Catherine Tate sketches.

Hmmm... Our cinema staff are notorious for not really giving a damn about the age restrictions unless your an obvious 12-year old attempting to get into an 18 rated film. Something tells me she was behaving like an entitled cunt from the start, and a some ticket seller took the age restriction rule as a perfect excuse to fuck up her day.

Deport the cunt. I bet she is one of those mothers who thinks violence is perfectly fine for her kid to watch but goodness forbit if there is swearing, nudity or sex. Or even worse, gay content! GASP! Bitch, you come to Europe, you follow our rules. Maybe if you applied them in the US you would have as low murder, homicide, teen pregnancy and STD infection rates as most European countries. And more freedom. Unless it's the freedom of any idiot being allowed to run around with a loaded gun that is.

The Village Fete float mention is in reference to some of the silly laws in England. For decades it has been a tradition for the actors in Christmas Pantos to toss hard candy to the children in the audience. Some communities have banned the practice as potentially dangerous. Clowns are banned from using most water gags; squirting flowers, seltzer bottles; for fear of slips and falls due to the water. I am sure there are many others, but they have nothing to do with her son seeing WWZ

Poor Europe. Why is she even in the UK?

Oh, for heaven's sake, Patty, the LAST thing a 14 year old American boy lucky enough to travel abroad needs is to see a fucking schlockbuster movie he can see anytime.
By the way, Madame Tussaud rang; she wants her waxy breasts back.

This is to typical. She is the type of "Christian" who would scold about how we have to protect our children from "filth."
And when someone tries to protect her children? It's inconvenient and she has a hissy fit!

Conservatives always flip-flop back and forth as it suits them. They're usually the first ones to bitch, "That's not appropriate! Think of the children!" when a movie or song is considered to be "controversial", but when one of their little brats doesn't get their way, then it's "socialism" and "nobody has any rights".
Make up your mind, you dumb Republican cunts.
