I prefer pigeons
AFTER reading about £10,000 being raised to rid Huntingdon of the pigeons, I wonder if similar measures could be taken to rid Huntingdon and Godmanchester of the hooligans who roam the streets, drinking alcohol, smashing glass bottles, leaving broken glas
AFTER reading about £10,000 being raised to rid Huntingdon of the pigeons, I wonder if similar measures could be taken to rid Huntingdon and Godmanchester of the hooligans who roam the streets, drinking alcohol, smashing glass bottles, leaving broken glass for children and animals to get injured on. They throw beer cans and litter everywhere.
I'll also mention the dog walkers, who are too bone idle to pick up their dogs' mess, so that little children tread it into the classroom.
All you can hope for is that these idiots one day fall onto some broken glass and sever a main artery.
I'd sooner put up with the pigeons.

The new signpost, will of course, be written in Pidgin English.
On the day of the grand opening perhaps the Flying Squad will line the route to the feeding ground and possibly we might see a fly-past of red chequers to mark the occasion.
