    Just been on BBC East Midlands Today that the Midland Railway Centre has fallen victim to the braindead louts that infest this country. The cretins smashed windows on a couple of coaches and done other damage. Flogging is too soft for these idiots.

    That is a serious occurrence. Usually it is called mindless vandalism but I get the impression that it was targeted - almost a vendetta maybe? I hope the culprits are arrested.

    A few months in borestall or a course on civil engineering on railways work and a bit of hard labour trackside ganging community payback to repay society back to these mindless vandals to cure em if they dont attend the course take their privilges away and more time in borestall or send em back to court for breach. If they copped their faces on camera or any witnesses saw owt on the E.K.R.
