Restoration work = masons = Rangers fans. Everything is simple when you can think as slowly as you can type.

(Satire, for the time being.)

It's very similar to the situation at Glasgow's Art School.
Obviously a far larger and more historic building, but these paces experience the greatest problems when people are poking about and "doing improvements".

Given the severity of the blaze - I've deleted that flippant comment.

Mmm, bit early, Bones. Still, at least you didn't do anything involving the Disney Hunchback.

Hard to find fault with this. "Iconic" can mean many things to many people but the Art School is/was one of those parish pumps central to any city's sense of identity and it's understanding of what it means to be part of that community.

I doubt that too many Parisiens had been inside there in many a moon but that is to completely miss the point.

Absolute tragedy. Apparently the Interior Ministry is now briefing that "firefighters might not be able to save the cathedral". Sounds like they're preparing people for the worst.

As others have mentioned it's very like the GSA fire. Similar situation. The fire was still out of control during darkness and everyone just had to wait for the morning to see the full extent of the damage. I sincerely hope Notre Dame has a bit more luck than the GSA had.

It's the "Notre" (our) part of it that must be part of what is so distressing. Cuts to the bone.

Hard to remove the mental taint of a Brexiter saying it should all burn, or an atheist pleased to see a monument to religion destroyed though.

Christ, I wish I had some proper sleeping tablets.
