  • This just proves my constant point that Ipswich is a cesspit. Only a sewar rat would commit a cowardless crime like this. I wish the victim well

  • I wonder what you mean by the word 'cowardless', I can't find it in any dictionary. I take it you don't live in Ipswich otherwise that would make you a 'sewar' rat like the rest of us.
