I think we all come here as we crave a level of realism but I thought the final perception was apt, and in reality would no doubt be what I for one, would most probably have experienced. There was indeed a consequence for being "a gardener of death".

Sorry skip, "from Tunbridge Well's", was meant as a knowing joke, being as most letters to the BBC are. On my salary I couldn't afford the Royal Borough – it's "hells corner", quite literally, Chavdom: also known as Chatham.
