A 1000 year old Oxfordshire village is to close after it was deemed not to be economically viable to the local Tesco superstore. Villagers received the news at a tense public consultation meeting last night!

hells teeth!

to make it worse..
the area where the village stands is turned into a carpark and play area :0
Brilliant.............Big Grin
we're doomed
Am I bad or what??? }Smile
I think it's a nice touch that there going to use the oak tree to make the chippings for the play area...very green...
Inspired and scarily could be very true! Big Grin

I might put it up in the office and see how many people fall for it! }Smile
If you haven't already read George Monbiot's 'Captive State' to see how close to reality such a story could be. It also makes you wonder if you want to be involved in an industry connected to large developments given what goes on, which is cheery!
