    Sounds like utter bollocks to me. If you're doing a large-scale grow you don't do it in a tower block where it's hard to bypass the meter, or get gear and crops in and out, without being caught. And a small grow for personal use doesn't make much sense - in an area like that, it'd be cheaper and easier to buy from the big boys. I wouldn't imagine you'd have to walk far to find a bit of green round there

    A cheap secondhand fridge, probably not well looked after, going up, though - that sounds a lot more likely.

    I had suspected a meth lab rather than a cannabis farm...

    I work in an office building attached to Manchester Arena, whose main entrance was in the foyer area which was bombed. We've been back in the building three weeks ago, but half of the glass fronted entrance into the foyer is boarded up (glass broken by the shrapnel), the unsmashed panes have had opaque film placed over them. My desk pretty much overlooks that area. Builders have been in the foyer, mainly securing the area (I am unable to see into it, but based on a journalist who gained access to the foyer yesterday as part of Prince Charles' visit, the flooring still bears the scars of the explosion, and apparently concrete and metalwork has holes in it from the shrapnel. We were told cameras were not allowed into the foyer as it is still being treated as a crime scene) but they have been quite noisy. The main entrance to the foyer from Victoria Station has been concealed behind scaffolding.

    Seeing that, every day, is an incredibly sobering experience indeed.

    Owlhoot has posted things like this recently, but refuses to provide any sources or evidence. As such we have to accept that he is a liar, or is being fed lies by his controllers (EDL/BNP/DM/UKIP) and is too stupid to question the lies as they would then rock the fundamentals of his faith. Much easier to say that it's rumoured to be a drug den than to accept anything that would mean that innocent people died in a fire.

    Being in London for a conference tomorrow, I took the H&C past there earlier on. I didn't know how close the block is to the track, which is elevated at that point. Very shocking to see such devastation so close

    Are you actually asking that CUK posts should be backed up by sources or evidence?

    If that is the case, could mod decisions be backed up by evidence?
