It's obviously a terrorist who managed to evade security and all the site workmen to access the roof, set a fire, make it look like an electrical fault, escape undetected, and for some reason fail to claim credit via the police/media. /MyOccam'sRazorIsABitRustyI was wondering about a watch face.
It's in the Daily Mail, so I now doubt the existence of Notre Dame.
Yeah, I do a bit of Daily Mail now and again. I could give up any time I want to. I just don't want to.Please note that I read a wide variety of "news" and I am NOT a Fail on Line reader even though I read it every day
That contracting firm is going bust after all this. They've just held up their hands and admitted they caused it!Yeah, I do a bit of Daily Mail now and again. I could give up any time I want to. I just don't want to.
i liked this bit "in no way could a cigarette butt be the cause of the fire at Notre Dame."
No, in Every way could a cigarette butt be the cause of the fire at Notre Dame.
And boy! Do we see enough of that in the construction/refurbishment industry. Point to remember our industry here in the U.K. is very heavily regulated and we still have fires, Windsor being one of only many. Some of the old buildings I have worked on, such as the Guildhall in London and the city school of music on the Thames close to Blackfriars are really just stone boxes full of tinder. If a fire breaks out on a modern construction site the materials we use tend to have some fire resistance and the problem can be resolved quickly and without too much damage. In very old buildings undergoing refurbishment a fire can catch hold and grow very very quickly.Sometimes and accident is just an accident, and incompetence is just incompetence.
That's enough for the Brush With Fame thread - can't remember the name of it now - and I think you should include it there.My Mum's friend (now deceased) made the curtains that caught fire at Windsor (she worked for the Queen as the Queen's dressmaker).
Also Gone With The Wind and Scarlett wearing the green curtains!Was she Julie Andrews?, just thought of The Sound of Music and the clothes made of curtains and imagined the Queen wearing them
