I'm sure there's probably some ironic joke you could cobble together about ze germans not managing to destroy a whole chunk of the street - rather it took the formidable market forces of luxury loft style living to finish what they couldn't...*

if we're ever at war again forget the spitfires, lancasters etc.. send in the JCBs of Berkley, Galliard and so on..!!

LONG LIVE THE QUEEN.



*it is quite possible i am totally wrong on this btw.

The army are attempting to remove it tomorrow morning - the buildings nearby will be evacuated again:

Police knocked on door at 5.45am saying I have to be out by 8am (west end of Grange Walk). Should probably get a move on and stop mucking about with the internet!

Did the Army detonate it on the Isle of Grain? About one hour ago friends reported their houses shook after hearing a very Big Bang?
