      Thanks alot - NOT! ( vandals )

      I've never had a problem with sky and last night it was awful actually it was the worst ever as i had no internet at all!. Internet went down around about 10pm and was still down by midnight, went over to my dads place and he had internet he was in the next town. Phoned sky and the lines were incredibly busy but when i finally got through i found out that some vandals had decided to smash into some of the exchanges in herne bay and vandalize the hardware!

      Seriously what's the point, why not vandalize something that everyone hates instead of doing something like that!. Internet didn't come on till about 7am in the morning, had to wait to publish my article online

      I hope that there is a lot of hidden CCTV in the exchange, so as the culprits can get caught. It is bad enough that we should have to put up with people taking the cables.

      My bet they are all wearing hoods and there is 'nothing' the police can do as per usual

      Maybe this is something the new Police and Crime Commissioners can tackle!!!! or the voice inside me says another waste of time and our money. When I was in the Police my first Seargeant used to say "sort out the petty criminals and they will not be elevated to the big stuff" now they can do whatever they want as it is "their human rights" So we live in the world we create or is it the one the politicians create!!!!!

      Must get back to my dream world.
