Lock up your kids please

YES folks it’s that time of year again, the dreaded school summer holidays.

As parents try to come up with creative ways to get their kids off the sofa, away from the computer and out into the fresh air – I appeal to you, please don’t!

The last thing I want to see if a load of snot-faced youths on BMX bicycles out in the Market Place riding roughshod over grannies.

Let their eyes go square as they play on PlayStations and the XBox.

Do us all a favour and if you want your little darlings to have fresh air just open a window.

Or even better load up the camper and take the whole family away for the six weeks.

We’re only one week in to the holiday period and already I am sick of the sight of all these slackers.

If I had my way they’d be up a chimney working for a living from the age of eight.

They don’t know they are born.
