Historic Buildings Liberation Front
#1
Now I know this was published on the 1st of April, however, the Guardian has not said it was a April Fool.

http://arts.guardian.co.uk/news/story/0,...48,00.html

There is also a story in Bedfordshire on Sunday

http://195.74.109.26:2029/news/bedford/2...tewash.lpf

published on the 2nd of April.

What do we all think?

And they are nothing to do with me

This is a route we must not go down however tempting it might be knowing some of the criminal damage to our heritage. The type of people who start on this are no friends to this cause. Infantile self regard and too many emotional problems is the norm sadly with this type and the loss of the high moral ground.[xx(]

When I first read this in the Guardian I was sure that it was an April's Fool story. The fact that it has been picked up and repeated by a local rag does not make it any more believable.

Now I am really concerned - perhaps there are people put there who are prepared to break the law to protect historic buildings - maybe we ought to join them, but how can you sign up with a secretive organisation that advises members to hide their equipment under the floor of a garden shed ?

Let's hope they don't destroy any archaeology digging any secret shed holes. Historic Buildings fans often seem to forget the below-ground stuff...

Hmmm... sounds a bit suspect.

If it is real then they have got a point - destruction of historic buildings to be replaced by bland and boring new ones is just not on.

BUT...before I drop myself in it... going about it this way is also not on. I'm sure we'd all love to take action against those heartless developers but as EarlySlav says these kind of people are no friends to the cause.

Anyway... I'd need a slick and sophisticated control centre for complete world domination... not a garden shed...Smile

They do sound that bit too much like the armed wing of the National Trust.

..or the Continuity CPRE. [:0]
