    Despite repeated requests in the media from fire chiefs and firemen NOT to use any type of fire or disposable barbecue, still entitled ****wits carry on using them and cause untold environmental damage and put fire crews and homes at risk. It’s way past time these idiots were tracked down and fined really heavily for the crassness and irresponsible behaviour!

    Why are shops still selling these? Literally the only time I’ve ever seen a disposable BBQ being used is in the middle of field in the height of summer.

    Special dispensation as they are probably from Bournemouth and Poole

    Yep. Not the same, but we had a row with three cars parked in the passing place. (And every passing place going along the shore of Loch Voil it seemed).
    Apparently stopping to go for a swim wasn’t parking.
    And apparently we’re mean for starting the argument by asking them to move so that the 6 cars stacked up could pass each other.

    Everyone knows better or thinks the rules don’t apply to them, we’re all guilty of it to a greater it lesser extent.

    Not to mention the lunatic car drivers out at present who believe adamantly their right is to disobey the highway code.

    Is it too late to put them in a burlap sack and chuck them in a lake? It might sound a bit harsh, but we’ll all be thanking each other in the long term

    A few links in there about banning them. Co-op for one.

    My parents (in their middle 80s) live about 1 mile from that blaze. They have always gone out with various neighbours in the evening over the past few years wiith watering cans plus bottles of water and put out still smoldering bbqs and home made fires. I guess they missed this one.

    I genuinely don’t know how we are supposed to deal with this level of stupidity and/or entitlement. How the **** have people got to this stage of **** ignorance and not understanding Rule #1?

    The Police and Justice system simply don’t have the resources to deal with them and suddenly I’m thinking that some medieval vigilante violence may be the solution. Can we get a cattle brand with “I broke Rule #1” on it, heat it on their discarded barbecue and brand it on their foreheads?

    And despite the three separate fires started in the area yesterday, someone landed on the north shore of Brownsea Island today (despite the no landing signs all along that shore) and promptly set up a BBQ! Unless there is a complete ban on portable BBQ’s I don’t know how this will end.

    I had an utter bellend carry on driving through a zebra crossing on me this morning. He obviously couldn’t give a shit.
    I f**king hate people at the moment, and the BBQ thing exemplifies it
    Mostly the English too, and I say that as someone born here

    They really should be outlawed. So terrible for the environment. Let alone the fire risk…

    Drove back from France last weekend and once we got into Folkestone and started heading north, I often asked myself why I even bothered following the law or highway code. Definitely in the minority. Inside lane empty for miles in front of me with loads in lane 2/3/4 going nowhere. Special mention to the lunatic on the M25 who undertook loads of cars by zooming down a slip road off the motorway then cutting back on at the last minute then zig zagging round 6 or 7 cars

    Walking through the grounds of Chatsworth house a couple of weeks ago and the area by the river close to the car park at Rowsley was a chequerboard of disposable Barbeque scorch marks. The estate gives free access to much of the outer grounds and is beautiful. Then the entitled morons arrive and take advantage.

    Judging by recent experience, it’s the same in Germany. And don’t even get me started on Belgium.

    Morons down here had a fire on the beach, which they couldn’t be bothered to extenguish. I mean the billion gallons of sea water was probably too far for their little ickle baby legs to walk to.

    So they buried it in stones , whilst it was still burning, along with the smashed beer bottles and cans.

    You turn up somewhere clean and tidy, do you level best to leave it a shitehole and then foxtrot off making it someone else’s problem

    To be fair, a disposable bbq has always been the mark of a ****, even before this dry spell.

    Rancid things.

    This is why we can’t have nice things. 🤬

    I try my best to be a calm and respectful and reasonable person, I’m always pleasant to staff who serve me in shops, restaurants and cafes, but situations like these really do test my patience and tolerance more than a little.
    I’m afraid that the sort of entitled dickheads blocking access to fire crews, passing-places, lifeboat access, etc, would tempt me to go seriously mediaeval on their cars with a pick axe handle.

    This one was local to me.
    Five days to put it out, including a helicopter brought in to drop water on it due to how difficult it was to access the area from the ground.

    Cause – a couple of disposable barbeques. 😡

    We are staying in Southern France and they banned all BBQs yesterday at least in this department.

    I’ve used two disposable bbq’s in the past. Both times I used them on a designated bbq slab & both times I extinguished them with water, let them cool, bagged them & took them home. It wasn’t even difficult.
    Don’t get me started on anglers who can manage to cart 8 cans of weasel piss Fosters to a fishing mark but are too bone idle to cart the empties away.

    jambourgie – you clearly have nothing useful to say and your ‘trolling’ gets 0/10 which means it’s a piss poor effort so…run along and let the grown-ups talk.

    They really should be outlawed.

    I’m not keen on banning things, but have to agree, we are well past the point where disposable BBQs should be banned. The cost of not doing so is now well out of hand.

    Yeah disposable bbqs have thier nieche /place but unfortunately they seem to be abused by idiots.
    And they burn out so fast you’d be lucky to get 2 burgers and 2 sausages off one.

    I’m in the ‘it’s probably just best to ban them completely’ camp.

    Do they still sell those lovely Chinese lanterns that float off to set light to the nearest moor? When helium balloons are not sufficiently dickish for you.

    Germans do it out of principle…. If you’re hogging the outside lanes expect to be overtaken and hooted at.

    The Belgiums are just generally shitty drivers.

    Oh, and people are ****.

    Same here in Sicily. Its a bank holiday weekend here and the shopping trolleys are filled with meat, beer and barbecue crap.

    This. I tried to remains calm yesterday on a drive back from East Sussex with people driving at 60mph in the outside lane with the two lanes to their left completely empty. As I drove past in the inside I gave the careful stare and shake of the head. Then returned home to find our nearby park in the news becuase – for the second time – it was on fire with smoke obscuring the motorway. Local rumour is that the local residents that back onto it decided to use a disposable BBQ and that’d be after they witnessed the same event from thier windows during the last heatwave.

    And then finally some of the local parents are complaining that the Fire station has postponed its annual Open day. The irony is outstanding.
