Fire farce


I do so love provincial media.

At times it can be unintentionally comical.

Please let me know your reaction to this tale of woe from one of Toy Town's
™ sink estates.....tears of sorrow or mirth?

There are so many bizarre things going on in the background to this story that my head is spinning!

Apart from the 2 caravans in the back garden of a cooncil semi, the loss of the 'prized' Rialto, the 4 lodgers etc. etc. you have these mindboggling quotes;

"
Tony 47, who is currently unemployed, woke to see the towering flames in the garden just before 12pm."

Bless him. 'CURRENTLY unemployed'.

“I put a wet towel over my head and went out through the conservatory at the back. I did fear for my life a bit.”

CONSERVATORY? Now I know Tony's being nickum.

He pulled a mattress under the window so his lodger could jump out. There just so happened to be a mattress lying in the back garden? Quality neighbourhood!

I agree, there does seem to be a lot of things going on behind the scenes, as they say.

How caring is he? Even worried about one of his four lodgers! Obviously would affect the income andhe can't have that, can he?!

You left a comment on my blog a while back before I went on holiday. I've added you to my side bar :-)
