Er Dan shouldn't that have been Lord Rat and Sir Phil of Davies

Cant wait till the Monty blows, rest assured i'll be out there with my surf board riding the big one straight down the Thames estuary directly into London....how cool will that be

Of course the top advantage of the destruction of the monty would be it would wipe out Sheppy completely....... No more pikkies

Mudway

The Medway was always refered to as the Mudway !
Learnt to sail off the strand in gillingham, there was a load of abandond boats / barges from the way on the other bank a little down stream to form an island. Is it still there anyone know the full story?
They have been worrying about the Montgommery for years and no-one does much apart from send divers down once a year to check its still there and conclude its to dangerous to touch.
Bit like all the munitions, mines and other various nasties lost or dumped off the coast that occationally appear!

Hey Mr Rat
Thats why the council put the bridge in!!

(how come you can always remember the useless bits and forget the stuff you are meant to remember)

Us locals tend to avoid Sheppy as much as we can, when you set foot on the island you become part of the food chain there apparently they intend to build an even bigger bridge to let more of them over to the mainland, i read once that during the war the army had the bridge mined incase the germans landed.

Not sure about Scorpians but there are lots of pikkies, smugglers and illegal imigrants live on the island, those pikkies can reduce any car to base components in minutes

My solution would be to send all the Sheppey pikies down to defuse the munitions. That way we could deal with two problems simultaneously. That only then leaves the problem of the pikies in the Fens, all of whom I would round up, put on a large container vessel out of Holyhead telling them they were to be repatriated to Ireland, then sink the bastards in the middle of the Irish Sea.
