Greek Tragedy

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

I’ve not read a newspaper or seen a telly for a week having been in a tent in a field for the duration but today I see that there are major fires all over Greece and that arson is suspected.

Several people have died in the fires, including firefighters.  Several arrests have been made for arson and a picture has been released showing two suspected arsonists.

But one thing is bugging me – there are fires on several islands which would imply that several co-ordinated arson attacks have taken place.  It is, of course, possible that the other fires were sparked by the original fire as the fires are big enough to be seen by satellites but it does seem to be a deliberate, co-ordinated attack.  If so, who did it?

    Looking at the map of affected areas, I see your point. As to who might be responsible, I’ve no idea.

    I blame global warming. Lets face it, its always been hotter in the Med, and with climate change making our planetary temperatures go mad, the atmosphere must have spontaneously combusted…

    Of course there are English who did it. They did it 600 years ago, returning from Crusades.
