2 Moronic idiots broke into the show hall overnight and trashed everything in sight....I feel sorry for not only the organisers but also the Displayers and traders

i'd swing for bar stewards like that...……………...just no point to it and what will they get...…...a slap on the wrist...………..

if I were those modellers I, each would sue their parents if they are of younger than 16 by the maximum that I could in the sm,all claims court...…..make the parents pennyless and destitute.....each person individually suing for the max £5000.00p would soon make these assholes think about keeping their kids in check...……...ABSOLUTE ASSHOLES, EVERYONE of them. parents as well. 

there was no point to that other than destruction.....i'll bet they stole bugger all.

While it might be tempting to blame some current social malaise for this sort of nonsense it's a fact that it has been going on for decades. I've often wondered about the mentality of folk who smash bus shelters and telephone boxes; who spray obscene and brainless graffiti onto new paintwork or who deliberately set fire to buildings, cars and grassland. I can only conclude that they get some sort of perverse kick out of seeing the results of their handiwork and thinking "I did that!".

Perhaps we should set up the old-fashioned village stocks at the sites of their stupidities; lock the miscreants into them for a few days and hang signs around their necks which say "I did this". I believe that a public shaming would be much worse for the egos of these pathetic morons than a private punishment, especially if pictures of their ritual humiliation were circulated on Farcebook etc.  Perhaps we could pay to throw rotten veg at them, with the proceeds going towards repairing the damage?

Jean-Paul Sartre said "Hell is other people". He wasn't wrong - in this case at least.

There is some good in this world, Rod Stewart has donated £10,000 to a fund raiser for the damage, not sure how we can donate, I have a thought Farcebook was mentioned.

The link.
