no good deed goes unpunished … the state of things today …

There’s a story been doing the rounds the last couple of days, and if I had been up to it I should have shared this bit of insanity with you yesterday.  This is an example of what this once great country has come to.  What makes things worse yet, there are young Brits bleeding and dying and not just on the streets of their local communities.  Young fellows in far away places leaving a little bit of England etc.  It bothers me a lot, and does so even more when I read this sort of thing, which convinces me that this place is finished and doomed, because there are far too many people like one of those in the story I should have posted.  And too many like the city council involved.
For all that I post about the crumbling justice system and teen killers, it is a good feeling to hear about one young kid who without thought to reimbursement or even thanks, does something good quietly on his own. At age 15 he actually was able to get a city to commit thousands for the restoration of a neglected war memorial.  A memorial he had been tending in his spare time, from the age of 7.  A memorial he spent spare pennies on buying stuff for it to make it presentable.
Jeesh.  You have to wonder about some people.  And trust me, you won’t figure them out.  They all fit one kind of mold.
I’ll let Richard Littlejohn pick up this story, he tells it better.  And all of the rest of it is, as usual, at the link below. Don’t miss it.

SOME DEEDS

Some stories make my blood boil. You won’t always find them on the front pages or leading the television news bulletins. But they tell you more about the condition of modern Britain than most of what passes for ‘news’ these days.

Take the case of 19-year-old Kurtis Green, from Dersingham in Norfolk. For the past 12 years he has been lovingly tending the war memorial opposite his parents’ fish and chip shop.

It began when he was just seven. Kurtis saved up his pocket money to buy gardening tools and started clearing litter and planting bulbs.
Over the years he has devoted hundreds of hours of unpaid time to his task. When he was 15, he mounted a successful campaign to persuade councillors to spend £20,000 restoring the memorial with new flowerbeds, railings, seating and block paving.

Kurtis won a Norfolk Young People’s Role Model of the Year award and was congratulated by the Queen.

Thanks to his efforts, the local branch of the British Legion collected a prize for Norfolk’s most improved war memorial.

But Kurtis wasn’t content to rest on his laurels. Deciding the plants and flowers could do with more irrigation, he tapped into a nearby water supply, which had been installed as part of the restoration programme.

Together with a fellow villager, 65-year-old John Houston, he went about the work in a professional manner. At the insistence of the council, he took out public liability insurance and coned off the area where the trench was being dug.

Once the work was complete, the trench was filled in and new grass seed planted. ‘It actually looked better than when we started,’ said Kurtis proudly.
But this is where it all began to unravel. No good deed, as they say, ever goes unpunished.

His grandfather served in World War II and Kurtis says he started his clean-up campaign because it ‘was not in a fit state’ to honour those who had fought for their country.

While Kurtis and John were carrying out the work, along came a councillor and started taking photographs on his mobile phone. ‘The next thing we knew we were reported to the police.’

Not so fast folks. There is more right here Oh boy, is there more.

Because the insanity continues with ice cream vans being banned to save on carbon emissions. It’s all at the link. And none of it is funny.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
