Last time we had a dead cetacean on the beach it took a fifty-grand police operation to clear it up. A vast section of the beach and promenade were closed behind police lines due to the stupidity of Bournemouth council's elf-n-safety jobsworths.

Last week I saw a dead cuttlefish on the beach but I didn't feel the need to call the coastguard or the police.

Why shouldnt they? Maybe to be made aware of why greater numbers of people would head down to the beach in January. Its just a courtesy

Exactly, it not a washed up shipping container full of BMW motorbikes is it ? Despite all the feelings towards the Mammal this encounter is purely a victim of the circle of life - unless of course the council just bung it in the landfill ( which they will ) , I say push it back in the sea and let nature take its course

The levels of racism in Bournemouth are truly disgusting and something that still surprises/disgusts me despite living here for many years. They are very parochial the born and bred locals. They lack experience of the world.

I don't know, it feels very international a lot of the time given the number of overseas visitors we have.

Not exactly the country yokels you are patronisingly trying to suggest..

Those who seem to be playing the racist card on this will probably take comfort in the fact that Haribo have removed a couple of their sweets from the assortments after a few people complained as they were offended and thought those little sweeties were racist,so you are in good company :)
