Angry If ever a reason to leave the UK...

I've been on the phone to my mum, my dad is in hospital

He was at a bonfire, enjoying a drink with some mates when some little ba$tard thought it would be funny to push my dad onto a LIT bonfire!!!!!

Yes you read right, some little 17-18 yr old who had gatecrashed, pushed my dad face first, from behind, into a bonfire - he is in hospital with burns.

He won't press charges for fear of repurcussion - what makes it worse.... this ba$tards parents have been friends of my family since I was a baby!!!!! We KNOW the kid who did it!

WTF does someone do that for? It's attempted murder for god sake!!!!! He knew it wouldn't be pretty before he pushed, it's not like punching him in the face... he could have DIED!!!!

I am heartbroken.. I can't go back! I would do something I would NEVER regret to him but I fear I would have my residency revoked for my actions.

I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy...

Oh my God Michelle, I am so sorry to hear this. What an awful thing to happen. I just can't understand why anyone would do something like that - it beggars belief.

I hope your Dad recovers quickly and your mum - she must have been in immense shock too.

Huge cyber hugs my friend.

What can I say that is so awful I hope he makes a speedy recovery. I know how you feel you just want to put your arms around him. What is this world coming to.
Just out of curiosity where in the UK do you come from not that it matters because bad things are happening all over. Just wondered.

Thankyou. I just keep bursting into tears. I'm supposed to be doing my assignment but I can't concentrate. I don't want my kids to know neither so I'm having to try and put a brave face on for their sakes. They don't need to know things like that happen.

It happened in Blackburn, Lancashire, Margaret. It was bad before we left and it's just getting progressively worse! I have pleaded with my mum to get all my family away from the area.. it's getting so bad now!

You must worry about them a lot have they been to visit you?

So sorry to hear about your Dad's attack. We wish him well and a speedy recovery. I am sure like me the thought of capital punishment is the second thing you think about after our primary thoughts of best wishes to your Dad.

It was! And that's why I can't go back.. I don't think I'd be able to stop myself and losing my PR is not worth the revenge on the scumbag. I'm a firm believer that everything comes full circle, I'll have my day

Sorry for your troubles. What makes matters worse, he's probably in the Royal Blackburn Hospital!! It was my previous employer before moving out, the worse NHS trust I worked for. My best wishes for his recovery.

I'm assuming it was alcohol related being a party. Unfortunately, through my expriences at either NHS or ACH here, you will always have humans harm other humans through jaded decisions with alcohol/drugs.

This is absolutely appalling. So sorry to hear this & wish your Father a speedy recovery. Bugger the assignment for now, you're obviously in no fit state to do it.
