A certain troublesome young chap who has "gone to ground" allegedly ordered some sort of bomb making kit online is the story I was told.

Maybe the Manx Liberation Army or the Fool Hallo are going to reemerge, but I heard they were all too ensconced into the post yuppy way of life in the  Finance Sector and that.

I heard that following a threat against someone, fireworks were ordered by the person making the threat? A bit of a damp squib if that's the case ;)
