ESTATE AGENTS IS TARGET OF FAILED ARSONIST
15:00 - 02 February 2006
Witnesses are being asked to come forward following a suspected arson attack on a Castle Cary shop. A member of staff at Cooper and Tanner estate agents in Fore Street arrived at work last Saturday morning to find that a shredded cardboard beer case and a cigarette had been pushed through the letterbox.

Morning briefing to young EAs: Its a jungle out there.

An estimated £3000 of damage.

Window repaired.

Pictures reprinted and hung in window.

Desk and chair righted, phone put back in place.

Business miraculously restored.

Surely an EA doesn't need much - a car and a mobile would do at a pinch?

That's nothing. Where I used to live someone committed suicide by crashing their car into one of the estate agents' offices at high speed: as far as I could see from the wreckage, it was pretty much gutted by fire.

At least I think it was suicide rather than an accident, it's a few years and I may have mis-remembered the newspaper reports.

OR: "Let's be careful out there."

OR: "Let's do it to them before they do it to us."

One of More4's better offerings.

Isn't it funny? Isn't it amazingly co-incidental that when some businesses have a downturn that they get arsoned or burgled and the insurance is claimed...

Its just amaaaazing! Don't you think?

:rolleyes:

Funny you should say that. I have a relative in Germany. When the economy started to take a dive he said you could measure the speed of the situation by the number of fires happening at business premisses during the night...they suddenly seemed to increase.

Could just be an urban myth.

By the way...has that property developer who had millions of pounds worth of art stolen got it back yet?

Perhaps it's Meibion Glyndwr are on the rampage again :o

Yes, the subject of one of the funniest sketches on Not the Nine O'Clock News,

Scene, gentle crackling of homely fire burning with Rowan Atkinson's voiceover saying, "Come home to a real fire", a pause then, "Buy a Holiday Cottage in North Wales"

20+ years later still makes me chuckle

I smell a "Fathers For Justice" style hijack brewing here....

This is a discussion forum. Not an incitement forum.

We have a troll forum and a off topic forum – how about moving this to thread to the all new incitement forum

Seriously, with the amount of anti-estate agent vitriol, anger at the so-called VIs, and the general tone of some posts, I wouldn't be surprised if the person who did it was a HPC advocate!... "When Bears Turn Nasty"

I'm only half joking!

You guys are really jumping the gun are'nt you.

There currently isn't a HPC as confirmed by some founder members.

People are still selling.

Properties are still selling.

And always will.

2BCCNB probably will take a hit for the next two decades.

If there WERE 'Odd Incidents' sparked by the property boom they would not be against EA's.

Developers and off plan promoters yes.

Clutch those straws guys.
