Middlesbrough is ready for the apocalypse

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tees-44226852

A hidden World War Two bunker has been discovered under the back garden of a house in Middlesbrough.

Chris Scott was having his Marton Avenue home renovated when he decided to investigate what he thought was a drain cover. 

But it turned out to be the entrance to a concrete-lined, two-room bunker, big enough for more than 50 people.

The married father-of-one, 40, said he plans to turn the bunker into a wine cellar or an office.

I read that the other day and it was this section that made me wonder whether there is something in the water up there:

"Our neighbours had mentioned something about a bunker, but to be honest we didn't think any more about it," Mr Scott said.

"When my builder suggested having a look at what was under the cover, we opened it up and saw a 10ft metal ladder leading down into the darkness.

Now your neighbours tell you there is a bunker in your small back garden.

There is a big metsly cover in your small back garden.

You do not connect the two things or even bother to lift up that cover until your builder makes the suggestion to you.

Errr....

Come on frank, we are talking people from Middlesbrough. They have to concentrate really hard so as to remember to breathe.

I watched Idiocracy last night until about half way through, when I'd had enough as it's pretty tedious. Suspect some places in the UK are partly down that road already...

Really!?

If my neighbours had mentioned that I possibly had a WW2 bunker in my back garden, I'd be out there with a shovel and a thermos.

I reckon it was common knowledge already - wouldn't it show up on surveys/deeds - and they are playing up the 'oh, what a surprise!' angle for the press.

Maybe, but I have heard these things about Middlesbrough!

The one local news story my Dad formed part of indeed invented that "oh, what a surprise!" angle rather than the more prosaic truth.

I went there for a week to visit a friend a few years ago.

That was an education.

He dug something up, it looked old but I couldn't be sure so suggested he took it to the museum, he did so and the "expert" said it was Victorian metalwork for the export market.

Scroll forward twenty years and a family friend recognises it as an important artefact and it gets into local press and TV.

He gets painted as some numpty who didn't think twice about what he found and just hung it up in the shed.  The museum's failure to recognise it first time of asking is airbrushed out.

Two rooms "big enough for more than 50 people".

The So-Called BBC mentality is so deep into mass immigration.

Otis would have got 200 into that space.
