    Look What The B******S Have Done To My Van.....

    Hi All

    I was awakened by the Fire Brigade this morning, 6.45am. With my van, then just smoking. They say that it has been started deliberatly. B******S.... I have no idea who has done it, they have also used a key or something and scratched the side of the van several time too, why.

    What is this country coming to......

    But what a funny time for them to do it, possibly started about 6.15 to 6.30am.

    The also mad thing is I know I will not get the money from the insurance what:-
    i) what its worth, 35K miles , Air Con, Alloys, Auto, Rear seat conversion, etc

    ii) For whats in the car, Snooper, TomTom (4 months old), 60 sunglasses, etc.

    Sorry I know its not Cobra stuff, but I feel better know writing this, I think....
    Regards

    Wow - thats bad !!!

    Someone must really have it in for you to do that. Not many scallies get up that early to be torching cars.

    I hope they're caught and strung up by their bollox

    Really sorry to hear this Colin. Even more importantly though, is your garage & its valuable contents alarmed?

    Hi Colin.

    Yoy have my sympathies mate. Had my car broken into twice, and the wifes car has been done. The b******s even kicked the front door in while we were still in bed at 4.00 in the morning. Are you sure you have not upset anyone? Police suggested that to me. Every thing that does not move is now alarmed. First class security doors and windows fitted at one hell of a cost. Next thing cctv. I know it will not stop them, but I might find out who it is. And if I do it`s hospital food for them for a while. Not messing about anymore. This country has gone to the dogs. The wake up alarm has been ringing too long.

    That is bad news!

    What disturbs me more is even if they had caught them, it would be 40 hours community service! or drug rehabilitation.

    I had my new car (new to me) stolen a few years ago and can sympathise on how you must feel.

    Pity our police force is too pre-occupied in spending stupid mounts of money and time trying to catch in the most part, inncoent motorists travelling at 34mph in a 30!!!!

    What is this government comming too??? (rant now over)

    Hope you get it all sorted out with out too much hassle

    Regards

    I think just about everyone would agree with the sentiments expressed so far.

    Remember "tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime"? Give me strength.

    The only effective alarm I've found is having a house full of dogs. But I bet if one of them attacked an intruder it would have to be put down under the Dangerous Dogs Act. Oh don't get me started .......

    On a happier note though - great reg plate on your Renault Colin!

    Looks like a good area, so unlikely to be passing idiots and anyway these guys must have set out tooled up, with petrol etc.

    Must be someone with a grudge, personal or professional or, as has been stated, perhaps someone wanted to slow down the opposition?

    With the big brother status of the UK these days who ever it was must have driver past a dozen surveillence cameras, if the police could be bothered they may be able to get something that way.

    All our sympathies to you on that one, but at least it was your car not your letter box.
