Quote of the day

I have just been listening to the excellent John Waite in an episode of Face the Facts on the steam wireless. The subject under investigation on this occasion is residential caravan sites, or mobile home parks as they are apparently known.

Apparently the law protecting tenants on such sites is pretty feeble, consequently attracting some of the more "creatively entrepreneurial" site owners into the business. Waite is investigating reports of Rachmanesque intimidatory practices intended to induce residents to sell up at a ruinous discount. He is interviewing a couple of site owners (from memory so not guaranteed absolutely verbatim) :-
— Waite: So what were those men doing on site carrying baseball bats and wearing balaclavas?
— Owner: It was very cold.
— Waite: (Splutters).
