Now I'm not one to point the finger of suspicion normally BUT. I find it strange to say the least that we have fire stations closing, the fire fairies all have their knickers in a knot over the closures and suddenly we have rubbish dumps all over the place catching on fire.
Is 'some one' trying to make a point perhaps ? If it was school holidays you would point the finger elsewhere, but,.... well I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions.

Conclusions will be drawn !

Put it this way, I cant see the Rothschilds resorting to arson at local rubbish dumps to get their wicked way, the question is who would benefit by having lots of fires started and the need for a larger fire service.

I see a conspiracy forming here.

YOYOY is there a pile of combustible material in the middle of a major suburb of one of the greatest cities in the world? I mean it's not as if there is even any access to the **** place, so it isn't much good.

There is a massive area just beside Star Lane that never seems to have any activity on it, that is just begging to be turned into a dump...

There have been some enthusiastic attempts by the local people at converting the area, and I suspect that they would welcome such a facility, especially if there was a "back door".

Strange live right near it and didn't hear any fire engines or smell any smoke.
Obviously not as bad as previous times as we didn't have anyone knocking to tell us to leave.
Probably did us a favour as it has been stinking again recently!

You should support the Fire Service. They are really very good, and you might need them.
