Nice to get feedback.
A good mate of mine, who is indeed a very fine public servant (as I've just told Veredus, if you're reading this, Blondie) contacted me with a little anecdote on the subject of ghost busters.
Her ex-husband was a housing estate manager in Hull (as it happens, in the NDC area there) way back and had to go and see a tenant one day who had been bitterly complaining about noises and creaks and problems with her house.
No one could find anything wrong. She wanted a transfer to get away, adamant there was a poltergeist in her house; a transfer to another property was the only solution she would accept.
So he makes his appointment, tramps over there to see her, gets a full blown story about all the things the poltergeist has been doing - the usual smashing of plates, noise making and throwing of water routine.
When pushed on what makes her so sure it's supernatural, she says she knows who it is. "Oh", says the ex-husband, "and who is it?" "My eight year old son" says the lady, "oh no", cries the ex-husband "I am so sorry to hear that, it's terrible", etc etc... attempting now to comfort her and gaining more understanding of why she might want to move....
