These new houses will cost a bomb, I am surprised George Howard didn't weigh it in at todays prices. I am pleased the situation had a happy ending.

Are you seriously saying that you would want buildings damaged or Police Officers and Newspaper workers injured, or worse ?

If so, what sort of idiot or psychopath are you?
