Newhaven Arm.

My wife and I drove down to Newhaven on Saturday hoping to park up by the arm only to find that barriers have been put across the entrance and a large vessel with huge legs sticking up has been moored alongside the wall. We along with thousands of people have enjoyed the beach, the walks and the fishing that this area used to offer for years. Is this the French way of saying " this is ours keep off". If so what the hell are we doing about it, I know for a fact that the French would not sit back if this happened to them. I understand that we tried to get back access by saying it was village green status but have heard no more since. I have wrote to Norman Baker and am awaiting a reply to the same questions.

The monster with all the legs is actually a British monster owned by Titan Marine of Newhaven. They park it there for the winter. The arm and beach have been closed since the French bought the port and had to close it because the previous owners (us) hadn't carried out any restoration work since the war (pick which war you want). You can't accuse the French of not investing, they invested in Newhaven, and look what they've done to Dieppe. As a nation I can't stand the bloody French but this ain't their fault.

So what you are saying e.b.m. is that it is our fault that it has deteriated so badly since the French bought it. As for Titan Marine I believe this is the first time they have parked there not as you say ( They park it there for the winter ). I believe there is something very crafty going on and one day it will be revealed.

Pope, like the French or not you can't blame them for the deterioration that happened over the decades prior to them purchasing it. It is the compensation culture that has forced them to shut it down.
Mr Money, it's not an oil rig I can assure you. It's a pity it isn't drilling for oil though.

You English are so stupid. We buy a piece of run down prime land, we then neglect it until Health & Safety step in and declare it unsafe for the public. Perfect our plan is working. Next step planning permission for building and who knows you might be able to afford one of our pretty French houses.Merci ere be monsters for batting in our corner you must have a streak of French blood in you.

I can assure you there is absolutely no anger in what I just posted, if I thought you were indeed French I would probably have meant it. There could have been another comma after smelly I suppose but it still works.

I have just read Teachers post and it annoys me to think that the french own it. I have been away for a number of years and I for one used to enjoy many a happy hour down on the arm. After talking to a lot of fisherman down there and the local pub it appears that when it was sold they ( whoever they are ) forgot to put in a clause saying that it was to be done up and kept in good repair. I think Pope is right saying that there is something devious going on by the french and allowing the huge vessel to moor there is part of the plan. I also believe that ere be monsters is a bit nieve and as for Allo Allo I think he is a troll so dont let him wind you up E.B.M. I eagerly await a reply from Teacher in regards to Norman Baker.

It Takes Balls to be a Phoenix

Just noticed. TP started "Quote of the Moment", although it's hard to understand what it's for. more
I like BONFIRE NIGHT, and of course all the out-meetings which go on around this time - and the loud bang at the crack of dawn!
