When is a tank not a tank?

The huge green tanklike crane, designed to carry out battlefield repairs, has been sitting in a lay-by since new owner Nicholas Kravchenko drove it there last week.
Lovely piece of shit reporting by The Telegraph there... They've fucked it up in the first paragraph. Half of the article is bleeding repeated halfway down the page as well.

Retards.

Whenever the bloody media report something is a tank! Surely someone in journo land knows the difference between a WR and a CR2?!

Intimidating? camouflaged? It's inanimate ffs, and green. Why are civvies in general and reporters in particular, such complete and utter bellends? If he'd parked a similar sized vehicle there such as a LWB Sprinter or a campervan, it woudn't be a problem.

War veteran David Bedford, 85, added: ''It's heartbreaking living where I do.

'I have to look at his cars every time I leave my house and it's really getting me down.

''I don't know what to do any more.''

End it all, just walk into the light, the pain will be gone.

I found this fascinating until I read "Residents living in the normally tranquil area of Wolvercote, near Oxford, Oxon".

Oxford, Oxon eh? So what we are dealing with here is the SSPS syndrome, or, as you will be aware, Soft Southern Puffs Syndrome. Which is manifest by soft southern puffs dragging their anorexic Mong children, called Charlotte and Torquin out into the streets because a Polak has parked a TankThingyCrane outside the Council house their Dad bought from Maggie Thatcher.

There must be a solution here my friends. Anybody got contacts with Libya and the location of the suitcase Nukes Gadaffi allegedly bought off of the Russians? Two of those would shut Oxford, Oxon up. And if we waited till the wind was right we could do Essex and Kent.

If the Navy would see things our way we could do Hampshire while we're on. Anybody got contacts in a Vanguard? Let us sort the M25 issue once and for all?

Poor bugger, he takes a bit of interest in British military history, buys a collectable AFV, and pays road tax on it, and he's got everyone all of a tiz just in case it should bring down the property values of their former council houses.

Makes you want to go round in a Chally, pop a round in the breach and say "No, THIS is a tank! It goes BANG"

Production of 434's ended in 1971 I think so it's tax exempt. Wohooo! Does it only weigh 4tons?

That was the worse edited and written article ever in the Telegraph. Prob from a work exp over the wire service.

I think the explanation is here...

It is not the first time Mr Kravchenko has been criticised for his vehicle collecting passion.

Last September, the council was forced to remove a convoy of Mr Kravchenko's vehicles including five trailers, a Ford Sierra, a Land Rover and some scrap metal after declaring them abandoned.

But Mr Kravchenko successfully appealed the ruling and earlier this month, Oxford County Court ordered the council return the vehicles to him.

Neighbour Alan Cotmore said: ''It's a lovely area but it's becoming a personal scrapyard.''
Sounds like the outside of his property is littered with rusting vehicles, and the neighbours expect this recovery vehicle to end up the same way.

Now if he told them he'd brought the 'tank' to shift his other scrap vehicles....

The neighbours are quite right, 432 with raden would be a much more fitting vehicle for the public road

What a bitter, twisted and ignorant northerer you are; Nobody calls their offspring Torquin, it's Tarquin, or possibly Torquemada (if the child has an inquisitive nature). And Kravchenko is a Ukrainian name if I'm not mistaken. We do love Maggie though and you should be pleased she closed your beastly mines.
Ecky Thump and all that.
