Just got reports from the nosier of the neighbours that four houses have been robbed in the last two days on my road and the one next to it.

The joys of living in a suburb of a shithole.

Have been meaning to upgrade the alarm system for years, may actually get round to it in December when I will have some time if I don't get a contract straight away.

They will not try it on with a well prepared house. Security lights, double glazing and an alarm. If any fecker gets into my home he will be lucky to have a doctor to remove the hockey stick, stashed under my bed, from his cranium.

The great thing is, if the **** gets the stick off you and beats you to death with it, it will be self-defence and he'll walk free.

Always said that if anyone gets caught breaking into a house they should be forced to do their prison time in an open field. If they cannot respect houses they should be taught to respect them.

Yep. Its a funny place, areas that are OK (ish) can be just down the road from areas where shootings are common.

Now that is a good point and to be honest one I didn't think of.

Yep, am planning on upgrading the alarm and security lights including alraming the garage which is at the end of the garden. But as a keen DIY'er I have some expensive kit in there, table saw, router table, many tools, etc, plus expensive bikes. Probably more lucrative for a thief to rob the garage than the house.

The double glazing is internally beaded and locks are OK.

Easier still, change your name to Duncan Ferguson and advertise the fact you live there to deter them.

Alarm? boring. If you've got some time off out of contract, just get yourself a big plasma TV, a shotgun and a rocking chair. :smokin

I would love some active security on a par with frying the bastards with the mains upon entry, however the repurcussions deter me from doing this.

However, I wouldn't have any problem taking a baseball bat to someone in my home.

well, horses for courses, but come on...you're an Englishman aren't you? It should be a cricket bat. I resent the creeping Americanization of our head-smashing activities.
