    You really have to separate what they were doing there from the fact they were they at all.

    You can't defend the art when it's being done not only at the risk of their own lives but the life of the driver and the poor sods who have to clear the bodies up.

    I have absolutely sympathy with their families of course, a tragic loss of life. But that sympathy has to be put in the same context as a burgler who gets stabbed entering a property.

    To be a great artist you don't have to put your life and others at risk.

      Still has nothing to do with fare prices.
      Spectators arriving by ferry will usually have to take the direct train from Newhaven, (or by direct train from Portsmouth) although berthing is available for smaller vessels in the nearby harbour. Spectators arriving by charter plane or commercial flights are advised to board the direct train from Gatwick Airport.

      One family said the only comfort they have is he "died doing what he loved". What? Being run over by a train?

      I thought the thread title was refering to Chris Grayling.
      If we lived in a perfect place nobody would vote Tory.

      That is a fair point (indeed a fact - I wouldnt put it quite in the same context as an armed burglar though intent on (arguably) causing harm), however it was made on a forum discussing a stupid comment made by a twunt who had no need or business to post a provocative and untimely twitter post and those two need to be put into context as well

      Graffiti is socially unacceptable. Fair enough if you want to ruin your own body with tattoos but donít do it on buildings and property you donít own. Totally unacceptable

      Trying to stop it is a losing battle, just accept it.

      Don't make old people mad. We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.
