Perhaps they should set up camp, they seem to be there almost daily.

Yet when they were exploding all over the place we kept on going and didn't close the roads then. What a bunch of wimps we are breeding now. Just imagine if it was 1939 now. Mummies would be going mad that their little Tristran would have to go and fight the nasty man, and on a boat that has not got it's "elf and safety" certificate.

It may sound a bit drastic but Banbury is such a mess and is a disorganised and unpleasnt place to be sometimes demolition of the whole town is the best thing for it!
