Tory club burns down in Sussex

MYSTERY surrounds a fire which destroyed a Conservative Club in an English seaside town over the weekend.

The BBC reports that Sussex Police have launched a probe into the blaze that swept through the building in Newhaven, near Brighton, over Saturday night.

It took more than ten hours for fire crews to bring the fire under control and the club was wrecked. Said the report: "The crews' efforts were hampered after the roof of the property caved in."

It is not yet clear whether this was a deliberate attack, but there is plenty of motive for arson after the Conservative-led government declared war on the oridinary people of Britain with its first raft of neoliberal "austerity" measures.
