Post  Lioned on Sun 28 Aug - 23:07

I am building a new roof on my garage.It was a rotten old flat felt roof and i have built a nice 'pitch' roof ready for tiling and extended my porch and there is a flat bit above that which i'd like to do in lead,but the Pikies have been foraging in my skip every day (they can sniff a skip from a mile away) they just know ther'll be some totty in there somewhere.Last time i laid a lead roof they nicked it the following night,they are the scum of the Earth.Dont want to buy 900 squids worth of lead for them theives thats for sure.So just going to leave it covered in plastic till they move on.

The noxious Bob Crow not missing a chance to get some political mileage out of this.Though on this occasion he has a point..............

Rail passengers in London have suffered fresh delays because of another incident of cable theft, a problem a union leader said was now "out of control".

Services run by c2c between Essex and London were hit because of the theft at Rainham, causing disruption during the busy morning rush hour.

Bob Crow, general secretary of the Rail Maritime and transport union, said: "The problem of cable theft on the railways is escalating out of control.

"If a chunk of the excessive profits of the train companies was invested in visible staffing, track patrols and security we could get a grip on this criminal disruption to rail services."

There has been a spate of signal cable thefts in recent months, causing huge disruption to train services across the country.

I can't believe that - how utterly cruel. The Police have got to get to grips with these thefts taking place.

a whole SUB STATION WAS FOUND (MELTED DOWN?) IN WAKEFIELD,I WONDER WHAT THEY DID TO AVOID BEING ELECTROCUTED ETC TO DO THAT.
A PLUMBERS MERCHANT GOT RAMMED IN ALDERSHOT SO THEY COULD STEAL THE COPPER CABLES? INSIDE.
IN THE BAHAMAS,COPPER/METAL WATER PIPES ARE BEING STOLEN,MEANING WHOLE AREAS CAN BE WITHOUT WATER.
THESE COPPER/METAL APPEAr to be risking life and limbs OF THEMSELVES AND OTHERS,IT WON'T BE LONG BEFORE AN INNOCENT PERSON DIES AS A RESULT OF THESE INCONSIDERATE IDIOTS ACTIONS.

Did you see the dirty likies stashing their 'cable' into their vans at Dale Farm this morning !!

These are the lawless thieves that have cost us £Millions.

My roofer had to go off early today to see to an emergency where the pikies had nicked the lead off an old mans roof and it was leaking.

I know we shouldn't tar a particular Race or Group of 'ethnics' with the same brush but i doubt very much if there is a law abiding tax paying decent mannered pikie/gypsy/traveller in existence.

They send out their little ones (can't be much older than 10) knocking on my door offering to do my drive.They are very polite i must say but then they go off to the local shops to nick what they can.

The PM is now getting involved and they are talking about legislation to try to control it and making scrap dealers take more details and cash will be banned.

A 21 yr old is in hospital with 61% burns because he tried to strip metal from a Substation. In rural Cheshire two metal Wall Plaques were
stolen from a War Memorial. Somewhere else, metal plaques were stolen from Gravestones, but recovered because Police believe even Scrapyards balked at buying them.

What THE HELL is happening to Britain when we are breeding such heartless criminals!!!!!!!! It"s not as though anyone starves today.
