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?
