Police have arrested 3 members of the notorious Burnley Hooligans ' The Suicide Squad ' for vandalism in the toilets at Ewood Park yesterday.

A police spokesman said.......

" 3 grown men attempted to kill themselves in the toilets when Burnley scored by smacking each other over the heads with toilet rolls. The men were so fat that they ended up causing a lot of damage to the toilets; but remained unharmed themselves "

Police have given them a warning and told them to stay in with their mummys in Burnley for the next few weeks.

Burnley Football Club are a JOKE.

Arte et Labore.”

"Conspiracy Theories", can the journalist who wrote this "article" please define this phrase which is used by the mainstream media to describe anything which questions the official line.Hillsbrough is a prime example of what the media would class as a "conspiracy theory" being proven as fact, that the police tampered with witness statements to deflect blame and lied about the liverpool fans.
