Arson About

Not for nothing is the seedy north of the island dubbed the 'Arsonists' Playground'. According to the BBC News website, Foreness Water Ski Club in Palm Bay has received a visit from the chaps in the Swan Vesta sponsored tracksuits, and may now have to be demolished.

As ever, Kent's finest are on the case. And as ever, that's probably the last we'll hear about it.

Good work ECR -

Judging by the police photo-fit you show us, the police should have no trouble tracking down these four suspects.

this on the same BBC report page



An arson attack in Margate and a BNP councillor elected at Sevenoaks.

Quiet sort of news day.

Jeez,

Swanley might be technically in Sevenoaks district but it is like calling Broadstairs Margate!

Lights blue touch paper and retreats.

Someone needs to do more in Margate to prevent these sensless fires. The town has already nothing to encourage credit crunch Brits cancelling their hols abroad to visit. Pherhaps the opening of Morrisons is the best thing to happen in Margate for years, it will at least bring local people back to the town.

The best way to prevent any further arson is to burn the whole of Margate to the ground, that will stop it!

Why don't we have a go at melting the polar ice-caps? That'd probably do it, though, as I understand it, you can get waterproof matches that will light under water, these days.
I'm also told that they have underwater branches of Corals, so day-to-day life in Margate wouldn't be too unduly affected.

And Richard, the sad act is that you are completely right.
Seriously, what are the police round here playing it?
It's nothing short of a disgrace.

I popped round to see my mate today and I was suprised to see one of the boys in blue lounging on the sofa.

I wondered, as anyone would, had something bad happened, was he there for a reason, had a relative met with a grizzly end?

It seemed not and he soon went on his way.

I asked my mate - was he on his way home after a shift cathching crims and locking up baddies?
"No" she repiled, "he's on duty, the squad cars round the corner, he just popped round for a cuppa to see out the end of his shift".


Sadly, none of this is a lie.
