    Yep - Brighton Pier - looked like it was an awfully expensive job and very difficult to get it rebuilt (alf'n'safety dontcha know) - but, mysteriously, it burned down.

    Now this place - just been bought, no doubt done a structural survey . . . and it burns down.

    Now, Hastings Pier on the other hand; just been bought, loads of wrangles with the council who are trying to close it down unless loads of work gets done, very expensive for the owners . . . . .

    Dont think even AQ would risk international condemnation for whale hunting...
  9. Seems we have a few slightly mis-informed people on here.

    The pier had been bought AND DONE UP - lots of money had been spent. Also the report on the radio more or less narrowed it down to deep fat friers causing the blaze - not terrorists.

    Come to think of it though - they said that the friers were found in the area where the fire is believed to have started.

    But, they could have, meant FRIARS. So it might have been terrorists from some fanatical religious group after all.

  10. Good drills that man! :D

    Countryside: the act of murdering Piers Morgan! :w00t:

    Mrs. Trellis.
  12. Err...don't see any mention of Terrorists in the linked article. Not even the Scum are that stupid.
  13. I wonder how well insured it was. Maybe a case of "Jewish lightning"?
  14. I was hoping this was going to be about Cyclops.
    Wrong again.
