Amazingly the old police station was worth £5m quid. We’ll have that said the Chancellor - sell it for luxury flats. It’ll pay for a few milleseconds of borrowing or a guided missile or two. Plug a gap somewhere in fact.
So out moved the fuzz and in moved the mob. It was a safe old town but with the gamekeepers gone a dodgy lot of scoundrels arrived - like a Wild West town without a sheriff. They’re rumoured to be selling the library next - the end of the line for culture round here. It seems that civilisation itself is under threat.

    Wouldn't have called the cop shop cultural. Something similar maybe...

    Selling off assets, reducing public libraries, charging its own children to learn (and in the process frightening off many who won't risk unsupportable debt). Sadly, UK no longer behaves like an intelligent and cultured first world country.
    Rant over. And an excellent drabble Steve!
