This BMEWS readers, is upside down ridiculous MOONBAT Britain today. Believe it!

Outside of leaving a few bats here I really don’t know what to say about this situation.  I do know that allowing it to begin with only encourages others to do the same and I’m sure they will.
Some other buildings were taken over last month and the one before as well.
The solution of course would be to shoot dead the people doing it. Bingo. Problem solved and doubtful others would risk doing it themselves.
But of course that won’t happen and so look for more of this in future.

The house next to us (due for demolition in six weeks) has been vacant for well over 21 years.  The lady who owned it who passed away about a year ago, couldn’t bring herself to sell her girlhood home.  She married a Harley Street Heart Surgeon and so had the money to keep the house up to a small degree. They kept the heat and electric and gas on year round, had gardeners come in and cut grass even when there wasn’t anything to cut.

Due to fears of just this sort of thing, squatters, the late mil kept flowers in the windows and a light burning all night and sometimes leaving on a radio or TV.
The mail was checked every day so that nothing look vacant.

It was all a bit hard for American ears to take in when I was told about it and after moving here my wife and I continued the practice when the mil became unwell and could no longer do those things herself.  In fact, the owner has a cleaning girl come in every two weeks to sweep and dust, but there was little to do and mostly she fell asleep on one of the beds there.  We were sent money enough to pay the woman every month.

Heres a photo, the house in foreground is the one that’s vacant. It was sold to a Winchester dentist when the housing market was high. The house is almost worthless but the property is large and goes back a ways.  He is building a new house there.  These are called Dormer Bungalows. The one in the center is ours and it’s falling apart, and the one to the left of us has been demolished and been replaced with a two story red brick eyesore. That property sold at the high as well in the same period.  They may look cute but trust me.  Most Americans would have to be paid to live in one unless they were homeless.  No central heat and NO SCREENS on windows, not even new houses have those. And NO AIR CONDITIONING! 


Squatters have taken over two seven-storey houses on Park Lane in London worth an estimated £30million.

The drifters have occupied the buildings on one of Britain’s most exclusive streets after sneaking in through an unlocked basement door.

The giant residences, most recently used as offices, are thought to be owned by the Duke of Westminster.

The 20 squatters, who share the space with three large dogs, say each address has been unoccupied for more than two years, according to The Sun.

The paper said the former homes were now a clutter of amateur art, acoustic guitars, overflowing ashtrays and the mess from the three dogs.

One of the group, a South African called Martin, said: “The view at sunset over Hyde Park is just magic - especially from the penthouse. I really love it here.” Another, 21-year-old Meg, added: “It’s much better when squatters move into a rich person’s home like this, as the owner can obviously afford to have us here.”

Squatting is not illegal if entry is not forced and no criminal damage is caused to the premises.

The buildings are a short stroll away from some of London’s most exclusive addresses - including an Aston Martin dealership, the Dorchester Hotel and the restaurant Nobu.

Ian Brimhurst, a member of The Westminster Homeowners’ Association, said the squatters were “blighting” the area.

The Duke of Westminster’s spokesman declined to comment.


In addition to hosting luxury homes and hotels, Park Lane is one of the most valuable destinations on the Monopoly game board, alongside Mayfair.

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.
