Or perhaps a large percentage of them are the employees whose place of work has just been burnt to the ground. Just a thought. Stop being so judgemental.

Is it out now? Will be heading home soon and don't want to get held up, guess Claines is far enough away anyway?

Me Me Me, I feel sorry for all those involved and been affected by the fire. A fews minutes on your journey is rather insignificant.

I am hearing people have lost their jobs tonight. Anyone know if this is true?
