Wanted: Plumber to mend broken boiler for perturbed local resident

We in the Haringey Green Party are a neighbourly lot. Therefore, we were very concerned to hear of a certain Highgate lady’s problems with her boiler http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/7781379.stm. Apparently, the wretched thing started spitting flames and making strange noises one evening. This caused its panicked owner to dial 999 for the fire brigade. Luckily, our boys and girls in blue sorted out the crisis, by switching off the appliance.

So please, if anybody knows of a good plumber, so that this poor woman can be spared having to make anymore distressed calls to the emergency services, drop a line to: Lynne@LynneFeatherstone.org

Hmm ... the Fire Brigade said it's right to call them in such circumstances. Any particular reason you don't seem to think it's right to follow their advice? I think they've got a pretty good idea about when it is or isn't right to call them out :-)

Hello again Mark. It's just a bit of fun, it is Xmas afterall, chill out, man.

We're just making fun of a very daft story. NB. Are the fire brigade really 'our boys and girls in blue'? Don't they wear red? I am sure Lynne could set us straight on this crucial sartorial issue.

I think that even Lynne would be able to see the funny side of this.

Mark said...

there is also a serious side to this in terms of not putting people off calling 999 when they should. But there was some levity in my comment too :-)

I am flattered at getting a trio of responses too!
