An historic castle suffered irreparable damage at the hands of mindless teenage vandals who targeted ancient walls and threw a medieval relic down a well, a court heard yesterday.
Two Polish youths living in the UK showed no concern for the rich 2,500 year history of the Scarborough Castle site when they carried out their ‘soul destroying attack.’
Well...yes! Does anyone think two British
youths would have been any different?
The judge said youths were invading the ancient English Heritage tourist attraction ‘on almost a nightly basis’ and he warned yobs could face jail for damaging the nation’s ancient monuments in future.
If that's really true, perhaps English Heritage should spend some of their loot on proper security rather than bizarre
Getting to be a bit of a worry though the new yahoos.
Do you mean an overweight, otherwise unemployable Lardarse who'll spend all their shift tucked up in the Security hut watching TV? - Never seeing nuffink?
Or do you mean perhaps a gun position on each corner, manned by willing volunteers? - if so call Fidel Cuntstruck on ..... ;0)
The castle’s active history was effectively ended by two German warships which fired more than 500 shells on the castle and town in December 1914.
The captains of the cruisers Derfflinger, Von der Tann and mine layer Kolberg were ordered to do 130 hours community service each and remain home in Germany between the hours of 8pm and 7am.
"Getting to be a bit of a worry though the new yahoos."
If not for the EU, we'd be able to deport them...
"Do you mean.."
Hence the qualification 'proper' security... ;)

We have short memories of our cowardly betrayal of Poland. You know, that time we watched the destruction of Warsaw and ordered popcorn, Julia. Fear and stupidity led to the dishonouring of signed agreements. We became voyeurs to vandalism or simply did nothing to discharge moral responsibilities and legally binding obligations.
Britain then proceeded to humiliate Poland in several post-war 'appeasement gestures' to the USSR.
How quickly we can feign indignity and outrage. Although the attack on Scarborough Castle was no belated political statement, we still got off rather lightly.
We don't owe every Pole in the world free board and lodging for all eternity for any of that.
I agree. We have sufficient irredeemable debt...courtesy of speculators and politicians.
@MTG - It was the Soviets that sat by and watched while Warsaw burned. They were within artillery range when the rising started, then pulled back. (to let the Germans do the dirty work of crushing the Polish resistance - the Soviet massacres of Poles at Katyn and other places had already been exposed)
Meanwhile we were attempting to fly in supplies at extreme range, which was hindered by the fact that - guess who - the Soviets refused the use of their airfields for refueling until it was too late to make a difference.
And the only way change the post war settlement of Poland would have been to go to war with Russia - at all possible or desirable do you think?
