    Yes exactly, there's always fat people in that place - probably council workers LOL
    You right wing louts really are pathetic. Council workers are regular folk doing a job and getting paid for doing it just like you or I.

    We can argue about the size of the state and what services to provide but to sneer at people for the job they do is beyond the pail.
    Doing a job ??
    Both of my bins are still outside, full to overflowing. They were supposed to be collected last Monday.
    I know it snowed, everyone was affected the Friday before last. However, in the main, we are all pretty much back up to full speed, and have been since last Monday.
    All of us, it seems, except the refuse collecting department of SCC.
    Are they making some kind of political point?? Or merely intent in reinforcing the belief that the majority of this hard-working, socially responsible and thoroughly decent taskforce are, unfortunately, led by a group of lazy, work shy, fascist bully-boys, Who will advise their members not to work at the merest hint of inclement weather. And thereby intend to make the majority of the electorate suffer to fulfil their own self-centred, egocentric needs.?
    then you are just as much to blame, there things called phones, and ask the council would of sent a some one around to collette it and empty your bins."

SHOPPERS had to be evacuated after a fire broke out at a Southampton shopping centre this afternoon.

Kitchen staff in one of the restaurants in West Quay Shopping Centre's food court reported the fire after it began at an indoor grill at 5.15pm.

As a result emrergency services were alerted and Saturday afternoon shoppers told to leave the complex.

Fire crews from across the city were despatched to the scene but the blaze was out upon arrival.

A spokesman for Hamsphire Fire and Rescue Service said:  “Because of its location in a food court in West Quay we had an automatic response and we had quite a few pumps sent to the scene."
