what's the point in setting alight to a bottle bank full glass?
I doubt the people responsible will be reading this. possibly because they can't read but in case they are ... GLASS DOESN'T BURN.

"Could be saving lives" more like "Could be playing pool" I remember the days when the fire Brigade were grateful for a fire, now days they moan about it when one happens ?
If there not supporting UKIP and EDL, they are driving a taxi for cash. They cant even hold a strike properly, all outside dressed in shorts and stupid baseball caps with copies of Escort under their arms, you make the post office strikes look organised !
I remember the miners strikes, proper strikes with proper traditions like brass bands, flags, throwing stones and blacking up their faces.
Somebody worked out how to set fire to glass ! It must have taken ages and its what your paid to do, so do it !
