After all my hard work, someone's gone and stolen my lovely rabbit

Basildon Recorder: After all my hard work, someone's gone and stolen my lovely rabbit After all my hard work, someone's gone and stolen my lovely rabbit

A THIEF has hopped off with a rabbit-shaped topiary from a garden in Southend.

Doug Hoare, of Eastern Esplanade, was devastated to find the rabbit-shaped plant he’s nurtured for the past six years had been stolen overnight.

Doug, a semi-retired chartered engineer, said: “I woke up and it was gone. I was sick as a rabbit!

“I felt quite upset, and I called my sister, my mate and my girlfriend to tell them. It went missing in the early hours.”

Doug says he put a lot of time and effort into shaping the plant, which was a key feature in his front garden.

He said: “I’ve had it for a good six years. It taken ages to grow these things and trim them. You have to buy a wire frame and let it grow, and every time it pokes through the frame, you trim it.

“It’s a lot of hard work that goes into it, so I’m not happy. I chose a rabbit because it’s a good shape and I like rabbits.”

Doug has put a toy rabbit in place of his leafy garden chum and says he’s hopeful about being reunited with it. He said: “It was my one and only rabbit. I’ve replaced it with a little toy rabbit for now, but I’m hoping to get the real thing back!”

If you know the whereabouts of Doug’s rabbit and would like to return it, please get in touch with the Echo.

And here we have an example of what is wrong in todays society. If its on show and it isn't locked down, or protected with several thousand volts, it will get nicked or damaged.

We have to thank the following for a modern culture, built up in recent years, where lack of respect for fellow citizens, and their property, is rife:

1. Lack of discipline in schools.

2. Lack of discipline in the home.

3. A justice system no longer fit for purpose.

4. A police service not fit for purpose.

5. Allowing in immigrants who have previous criminal records.

6. Allowing a reliance where everything should be handed to you on a plate.

7. Governments (all colours) favouring the wellbeing of the rich over those who are poor, creating envy amongst some of the have-nots.

There are probably many other reasons and please feel free to add to them as you see fit.

I can see why Mr. Hoare is hopping mad. Maybe he should have made a Cameron shaped topiary instead. There's not much demand for them these days.

And you can blame Labour for that lot. Lefties are the biggest ignorant bigots ever.

And when I say similar things to what you have set out above, how come I'm a racist bigot - but it's OK for you and everybody else to say it.. How does that work then?

You want more added to the list?

Try 8. Ignorant bigots who believe everything they read in newspapers and/or online and base their judgements of others on them.
9. People who initiate online bullying and hate campaigns or even worse
10. Those who further them.
11. People who assume they know about somebody or something.
12. People who opine without knowing the facts.
13 Ignoramuses who name call and berate complete strangers they've never met.
Worst of all, the sort of hypocrites who slag everyone else off or make accusations or assumptions and don't even have the decency to back it up with a proper full name signature instead of the usual pseudonym.

And even worse than that,those who judge others by their opinions and yet post similar opinions themselves (how does that work too?)

Online bullying is now at epidemic proportions and internet crime and internet-generated crime is now at its height.

Libel, hacking, harassment and malicious communications are illegal but it doesn't stop some people.

Go ahead and down arrow.. perhaps you were one of those who agreed with the internet being used for paedophiles, terrorists and other nutters to ply their trade, when I invited people to down arrow if they disagreed with me the other day.

I had 12 minuses, so there are at least 12 people on here who think it's fine for paedophiles to groom children and teenagers to be encouraged to commit suicide. And for social networking sites to overlook this.

Like I said, what a great bunch of people. Not.

THAT is what is wrong with society: utter disrespect and an assumption you can say what you like to total strangers from behind the relative anonymity of a keyboard. And as most kids seem to be online these days, they are learning early.

Still, never mind eh...

Online bullying is now at epidemic proportions and internet crime and internet-generated crime is now at its height.

Libel, hacking, harassment and malicious communications are illegal but it doesn't stop some people.

Go ahead and down arrow.. perhaps you were one of those who agreed with the internet being used for paedophiles, terrorists and other nutters to ply their trade, when I invited people to down arrow if they disagreed with me the other day.

I had 12 minuses, so there are at least 12 people on here who think it's fine for paedophiles to groom children and teenagers to be encouraged to commit suicide. And for social networking sites to overlook this.

Like I said, what a great bunch of people. Not.

THAT is what is wrong with society: utter disrespect and an assumption you can say what you like to total strangers from behind the relative anonymity of a keyboard. And as most kids seem to be online these days, they are learning early.

Still, never mind eh...
Kim, you are mixing my comment up with the comment of the post I replied to...try to get a grip or you're likely to go off on one of your rants...

Oops too late!
