Apart from the roadblock. And all the fire engines. And the flood. I’m still driving around today with bags of empty bottles and cans in the boot. John B September 18, 2017 at 11:00 am Sorry to hear about the fire at your works the other day Sid. Shhhh… that’s next week. dearieme September 18, 2017 at 11:43 am All the chap meant was that he doesn’t suspect arson. I think you were being a bit dim there, Tim. john77 September 18, 2017 at 4:23 pm @ dearieme Tim means that the person *refuses* to suspect arson (or a lightning strike or someone putting in a component of an explosive device in the recycling while someone else innocently put in a complementary component).
