I know I did.

You can't blame kids for messing around with this stuff, the blame lies firmly with legislation and shops selling to underage people and the age limit set too low.

Kids being Kids will experiment with anything they can get their hands on.
Couldn't agree more - the problem Nos is on about isn't really a problem with fireworks and banning them will have little effect - it's the root cause that needs to be tackled.

Fight fire with fire I say - got any matches???

Right now the root cause is our local council paying to house these scum in a private area when the mother should be in prison and the kids should be in local authority care.

Its the way things are done nowadays. Its supposed to bring them up to the surrounding social scale. Doesn't work though. And it means to do this your local authority has had to buy a very expensive house for that family to live in.

That is why your Council Tax is so high and you don't see any apparent benefits of those high payments.

I'll get off my soap box now. That felt good though as I haven't been on it for a while. Must be winter coming on with less boating time.

Call the local plod and ask to speak to the Duty Inspector. Explain the problem and that your willing to call the press and your local councilor to assist the Police in their effort to erradicate the problem !

The front desk of most Plod stations is staffed by civillians and are not always as helpful as the Duty Inspector !!! He is duty bound to take the complaint further.

If no joy there contact the Police Headquarters on Monday and ask for the complaints department. Explain that no action was taken about your complaint and that you are 'concerned for your own safety and the publics safety'

Something will be done !

Thats a very good idea. Make sure you get the Policemans name and collar number if its a Sergeant or Constable you speak to. That will work wonders.

If you complain to Council, they will probably send them on a f--cking safari to Kenya or something. The world has gone mad.

That's about the response we get at the moment-all wagging their fingers at them...

We can only hope that playground, or whatever it is, is part of a borstal or some other kind of correction facility.
