Drugs, or sleeping with a false eye lashed and nails spray tanned designer clothed benefit kept bint is my guess

Face it unlikely to be because one has issues over a new member joining the yacht club

At least with fuel so high likely could only afford to throw quarter gallon now.

Every cloud…

I find it quite distasteful that people have to highlight others poor grammar.

It has nothing to do with the issue concerned.

We have the most learned running this country and the world and they have messed up, so clearly education does not mean that someone who thinks they have a superior point of view is always right.

Even thick, worthless, social housing, benefit claiming tax credit swindling, drug growing, multiple partner yet single parent low life have a perfect right to a point of view without being made to feel inferior.

Okay inspector Morse the Echo has my email etc I await the cuffs Best add those sensitive souls with delicate ear drums to your list of suspects

My point was it is likely either drug related or a cheating partner

Now noise is in the mix as a motive

They get taken out for you now, if they have a catalytic convertor as the price of PM’s has sky rocketed since war, and people are poorer so steal to prevent going without anything essential like drugs, alcohol, fast food, fast cars and fast women
