Echoes of the past...first my old school....the Whitley Memorial...many years ago.....now my last school...[it was Westridge then..].....St Benet Biscop.

As I said in the topic of the last arson attack on the kids summer house at the Whitley,if the arsonists want ti play wi fire...put them inside a bonfire on November 5th,and light it!

Cheapest and quickest way ti get shot of scum!

That's my personal opinion.
