The GOOD the BAD and the UGLY!!

I cannot apologise enough to the customers who are affected by the lack of Car Boot Sales at Newquay. I fear there will not be enough space to operate our sales with the possibility of 4/500 cars looking for parking spaces! There could be traffic chaos so we will probably have to wait till the end of May to ascertain if the ground conditions are suitable. We are well aware of dreadful ground conditions at some locations particularly at Lanhydrock which was rained off so many times with sellers stranded in the mud and Landlords advising that if they had to drag people out with their tractor from their own land the stranded car owners would have to pay to be pulled out of their muddied field.

Let me explain how we expand our business, we find a suitable location taking into consideration the high volume impact of traffic to our Car Boot start times. We approach the owner to ask if they would be interested in letting us use their land for our sales. They are offered an amazing package as rent in return for them (the Landlords) presenting the grounds and grass cutting suitable for our customers, that is all they have to do, we will either pay them by cheque or cash, simple as that. We will leave the locations in clean condition taking all litter away with us. You are the Landlords so we hardly expect to see you but all we ask is ‘Do not interfere with the way in which Louise and I have striven to build up our business, just be good Landlords and just let us conduct our Community Car Boot Sales our way! If you want to read between the lines the deal done with Lanhydrock was jeopardised by the Landlady with her interfering ways high demands to cut ‘their grass at our expense’ and total bossiness so that is why I personally have called our efforts LANHYDROPPED so NO MORE Car Boots Cornwall at this location! Amen!

Last Sunday at Truro there was a particularly nasty incident which I believe was caused initially over a bottle of perfume on sale at one of the stalls. One 6’4 tall excuse for a man decided to go up to a lady and as he got closer to her face he shouted “You are a f…..g slag” the same woman was next threatened with physical violence by an 18 stone man. There were lots of witnesses to the incident with the usual effing and blinding but this incident makes bad for the reputation of our Community Car Boot Sales. The 6’4 man is BARRED for life and I am ashamed to say that the 18 stone man who threatened physical violence to the lady is a regular supporter of our Car Boot Sales and at present he is missing. I seriously hope he considers that his threat of physical violence to a lady is one that cannot and will not be tolerated at any of our Community Car Boot Sales under any circumstances and hopefully he should be missing for a very long time. And all of this just over a bottle of perfume? Get a life FFS!!

I have apologised to the lady and her partner that the incident happened, I was not there so I do not know who said what and I don’t really care but to resort to threatening to ‘beat up a woman’ shows bad breeding and an irresponsible mind. I have had texts and emails galore on this incident people telling me to ‘call the Police’ which would be a complete waste of time because verbal threats do not seriously count as a crime unless of course they actually ‘threaten to kill you’ which is the actual case of Neville Rogers who you will all remember I BARRED due to his offensive racially offensive tirades against ‘the effing foreigners’ and his constant claims that people were stealing from his stall. Anyway he has threatened to kill me on Facebook and emails and has told others a similar story about how he is an ex-army soldier and he knows ‘how to deal with me’ and I seriously don’t GAF!

“Well, bully for you sunshine, I was genuinely in the real Army the senior regiment in the British Army, HM The Life Guards of the Household Cavalry the official Sovereigns Escort not in some jumped up girls blouse of a brigade of wild imaginations outfit FFS”!!

Next he is witnessed going around Martin Rowe’s Auction Rooms trying to get enthusiasm against Car Boots Cornwall who have over 1 million supporters saying “He has lost MABE” (Health & Safety) “He has had Lanhydropped taken off him” (see above) “and he has had Newquay taken off him” see above. All the time this is going on he is offending some of my customers with threats of violence in person and on Facebook. If you do know him personally perhaps you could do us all a favour and tell him which way to point the frigging gun FFS!

In the late 60s I was threatened to be killed by another nutter when I was the General Manager of an Entertainment Complex in Newcastle providing 2 brand new night clubs with thousands of customers attending weekly. The criminal element tried to get control of night clubs in those days under the guise of bouncers demanding vast wages to ‘protect’ your business ‘or else’ therefore I got to know the criminal top people who loved our night clubs and were actually a decent crowd kept with their hands above the counters and at a realistic distance away of course.

A hardened criminal known as Freddie ‘Gunshot’ Mills was being released from an 8 year prison sentence and I was warned he would show a lot of interest in my night clubs firstly by demanding FREE ADMISSION. During one of our afternoon shows my head doorman advised ‘he has arrived’ and I told him to ‘Make sure Mills pays’ After ranting he reluctantly paid for himself and two other thugs, the three of them all large and furking ugly came storming up to me at the bar asking ‘Who the fcuk do you think you are telling people I have got to pay do you know who I am’ “No, who are you”? “Hello, I am Geoff there is only one boss here so absolutely everyone pays and I don’t GAF who TF you are or you think you are” which ended up with Mills threatening me by saying “I am going to ‘king’ shoot you-you bastard” to which I took a look at the three ugly bastards and (my knees are giving way FFS) stuttered “Without a gun you have a problem, go and get your gun boy” then I walked off a quivering nervous wreck knowing my days from now could be limited and to go straight home and change my undies FFS!! That was in the late 60s and I am still alive to tell the tale. Amen!


Millsy became a good mate and kept all the other thugs well away and all it cost me was his free admission which made him fell like King of the Night Clubs but conceded that I was the 'main man' and the intense interest from the Police who watched him always at the ready to lock him up again but it is fair to add the Police were not that much better arriving as the PUB SQUAD in teams of up to 10 all wanting free pints before they supervised the crowds of up to 2000 of our customers leaving our premises all pissed out of their minds and out of the building and onto the street and onto the coaches to all parts of the North East. TTFFT good-bye you drunken lot. Get rid FFS! A great crowd but enough was enough GO HOME!!
Last I heard of Millsy he was still going straight, (it must have been my influence) however one day he did show the bad side of himself as he stormed into my office and threw handfuls of ‘hot’ gold and silver jewellery on to my desk saying “Take some of this stuff for your missus, go on help yourself man” I went absolutely ape-shit threatening to call the Police, he put all the stolen gold and silver back into his pockets but he could not understand my attitude! Just FRO and go now FFS you ugly sod!

Newquay.
And just so that everyone is ‘in the know’ and to stop ridiculous rumours about Newquay Louise and I are demanding that the ground conditions and parking facilities are going to be totally safe for all of our customers buyers and sellers alike, to date these conditions have not been met, however I do see on the horizon an escape from the doom and gloom of the Circus Fields, more to follow ……..x
