Is This Rational..?

The bungalow in Corfu where two British children died of carbon monoxide poisoning is to be demolished.

Now, this isn’t unknown in cases of murder. And in some instances, if the police investigation has been extensive – in the case of Fred and Rosemary West – might even make sense, if the house is no longer structurally sound.

But there’s been a disturbing trend recently for demands to demolish any house where a murder occurred, even when it wasn’t actually owned by the murderer.

So I suppose it comes as no surprise to see that it’s now spread to non-murders:

The family of Christi, seven, and Bobby, six, had pleaded for bungalow 112 to be torn down and a playground built in its place. They had asked Thomas Cook to “push through” their request.

Utter, utter madness! When did we start indulging this sort of nonsense?

    When did we start indulging this sort of nonsense?

    When people stopped thinking for themselves and joined the mob rule culture of ‘all victims, whether true victims or not, must be avenged in all ways possible’.

    It is all because of Blair’s edukashon, edukashon, edukashon, mantra.

        Fluoride. Beside creating mass hysteria and a need to ‘feel together’ it also generates unintentional spelling errors.

    I am suprised the word “closure” has not been used in there somewhere, people now spend their whole lives waiting for someone else to provide it.

    It is not 100% rational. However for the resort owner it sort of rational in that they want people to forget about it.
