    Just been on the phone with Radio York newsroom for about an hour discussing this topic. They have recorded the interview I gave and hopefully they are going to do a news item on it. They think its a disgrace. Also they will be getting in touch with Glen and Paul asking for their comments on the issue, so if anyone would like to throw their ten pence worth in just contact the newsroom at Radio York.

    Article 47 and now this!! What next?? :angry: S.B.C. should hang thier heads in shame. The piers are what make Whitby a damn good tourist attraction.
    Tell S.B.C. to shove it!!

    I thought it was a joke- but also thought it was a great way to highlight the plight of the East Pier and a good way of getting folk to reveal their true feelings on the matter and those involved- which all did and quite candidly at that.

    Matty twigged it quite early as did a few other, but then there was people like Killer who phoned the gazette office to get a campaign started. Then later denied he ever believed it was true despite the fact he was swearing down the phone for 30 minutes about how the the town would be wiped out. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Must admit I feel for it in the morning but as soon as you mentioned the BBC had contacted you I knew it was a wind up (plus Matty told me!). All credit to you though Glenn, you put the time and effort into that April fool so well done (ya b#gger!) :cheesy:

    I didnt actually write it though. I had the idea about 6 weeks back and got someone else to write it. The person is a member of the site and very good at writing and Im very grateful to them for doing it. I dont know if Paul was winding me up but he reckons the Harbour office got onto him being a little ar$ey about it and asking for it to be taken off saying their legal department was onto it. If they did that it would just bring more negative publicity onto them.

    It was quite funny watching how far the word got. There was quite a few chat forums running a topic on it yesterday, including Whitby goths, a photography forum and even Middlesborough FC fans site (MIght be playing them next year :surprise:) where the one and only Ravenolleli made a comment :cheesy:.

    Sad news to hear that the piers are to be demolished, as both my grandparents came from Whitby i started my fishing adventures on the piers with my grandad some 50 odd years ago. But Whitbys lose seems to be Scarboroughs gain as always, the piers are part of Whitbys heritage and should be repaired not demolished, as anyone from English Heritage had any thing to say on the matter if not why.
