Re: Teenage girl throws kitten 11 storeys to it's death

Reading the article, I notice that the incident took place in Stechford in Birmingham.

Stechford used to be a nice, decent, respectable working-class district, the kind of place where the residents would hold street parties to celebrate royal weddings, where people would look out for each other and notice if somebody's mail was building up outside the door.

Unfortunately, by the time I lived there in the late nineties, it had become the kind of place where my new neighbour would feel it was acceptable to tell me that "you'll like it round here. There are no n***ers or p**is."

Clearly the place has got even more chavvy over the last 14 years.

And people wonder why I don't want to move back.

You could always move to the US where things like this happen..........

The woman with the wheelie-bin, wasn't quick enough to catch it.

I'm really unsure what this minor incident has to do with life in Switzerland.

Re: Teenage girl throws kitten 11 storeys to it's death

Why is it acceptable to make crass jokes about a dead cat, but not a puppy for example?
