Nothing surprises me these days. How low can these vermin sink - perhaps beneath the floods. We are just so soft on these petty criminals. If found perhaps the theft of Fire Service Quads could be charge of endangering life

If the Police had caught them and it was a first offence, the Police would let them go. Fact

And what will happen when the government spend £5million on flood defences for the levels.......134 police officers are due to be cut from the current budget, so it will only get worse. I can understand why holland invest in protecting the 27% of land that lies below sea level, as 60% of the population live there. The levels are a complete opposite! They say purchasing a house is the biggest investment in a persons life, so to purchase one on an area that is renowned for flooding is just silly in my eyes. I think it's time that the council looked at compulsory purchasing some of these properties and using some of the land as a dedicated flood plain

Many readers would undoubtedly like to read the next episode of "Mr. Blobby"s Adventures in Western Toyland". A sneak preview of the work, a few years back, suggested that when the ringleaders were arrested, the rest of them would do a runner. What we want to know is, the ringleaders of what, exactly?. Mr. Blobby knows. So do the Squealers - and it is said in Toyland circles they have been squealing for a while.
