I was in Plymouth yesterday and 4 shops in a row had large windows smashed. Shocking behaviour
Will be another druggie, no doubt.
Wigan is going to be deserted at this rate.
Yes..drugs or a bottle of their 'Pop' turns them instantly into thugs...mindless morons.
Drugs dealers are makings so much money nowadays , that the big guys know they can’t be caught . What choice is there for a young guy needing money ? At work he earns basic pay , then he gets offered daft money for one single run . What’s he going to do refuse it? The big guys , the controllers , know , with every refusal , they can get a thousand who will carry or sell for them . Young people want the best clothes , trainers , most up to date mobile , you can’t get that working at Tesco’s
Wigan town is now a place for homeless folk to beg, junkfood outlets (too many) and not a nice place to shop. Where have we gone wrong.
I need a sherry.
Pour me one, Garry, and Our Veronica and Our Maureen. Large ones! xx
A friend of mine witnessed this incident. Apparently the guy threw the beer keg at both main windows first and it bounced off both of them. He then threw it through the entrance doors which shattered and the interior of the bank then filled with smoke. Passers by, including my friend and his wife , carried on as though nothing was going on - wisely probably. Needless to say, there was no sign of law enforcement to be seen.
Garry,Ron Hunt has given you the answer to that question.I'll have a sherry as well.
Garry , Can I have your liver when you’ve
finished with it ? How many sherry’s is that ?
I think Garry has shares in sherry - You enjoy yourself Garry you deserve to after all those coal bagging years, why not?
I absolutely agree Veronica (hoping you saw, as Irene did, my previous post about the Garry's of the world)
Long may you enjoy Garry. I for one, will not forget the daily task you and your colleagues had. Saying that, I'm sure Garry you will say , even with such incredible hardship,
you wouldn't change any of it for the world. And long may your fire keep you warm, as your door knock did mine..
I dread to think that the scumbag who did this wasn't caught. I imagine him swaggering past, proud that he was responsible for the deed. The worst aspect of it all is how the rest of us accept the behaviour and move on
with a shake of the head.... Terrible indictment on us all and as Garry says "Where have we gone wrong"?
Yes thanks to you all.
Coalbaging was indeed hardship in all weathers to keep families nice and warm and hot water too. No I wouldn't change nothing and would do it all over again. Every Friday was to go out and collect our wages from our customers and have a bit of a yap with the ladies, sometimes got earache when the mams were shouting at their kids.
All good fun and miss it.
Veronica, for your information the culprit was caught and according to the Observer this week was sentenced to 6 months in jail!
I'm glad he's been caught, although the penalties are too soft - a good dose of hard labour wouldn't go amiss if he likes smashing things up! Thanks for the information Pieman.
