Perhaps, Casper ! London Mosque going up in flames. Largest in Europe. The thoughts are it could have been caused by cooking preparation, rather than arson. Wondering why they cook in a mosque?

They'll just rebuild a bigger one. (I knew that comment would please you, Casper ) smile

I was told yesterday that the muslims took over 2 ferry boats and then paraded along the prom afterwards "a la Orange Lodge". Don't know if this happened or not, does anyone know any different or able to confirm it? Strange times we're living in.
