Mccartney Offers Demolition Sacrifice

LATEST: Former BEATLE SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has desperately offered to demolish one of his houses in a bid to save the beloved log cabin on his East Sussex, England estate. The singer, 64, built the secluded hideaway in 2002 and has been trying to secure retrospective planning permission from Rother District Council this year (06). And now, to secure the survival of the building, MCCartney has offered to bulldoze his own house and two barns instead, which have also been accused of having a "negative visual impact". The three-bedroom detached house on the site "will more than compensate" for being allowed to keep the cabin, he argues. The council agreed earlier this month (17AUG06) to grant MCCartney a temporary reprieve, and have given him until November (06) to submit a revised planning application.

I do hope Sir Paul is just jesting about leveling his own house (where He and Linda lived married for so many happy years, and where his children grew up) just to save the Log Cabin by the lake. Was Sir Paul’s his life with the ‘H’ in that house that miserable and unbearable that he would rather see the house demolished? My heart just breaks at the thought! In my opinion, Sir Paul should just let the Council bulldoze the Log Cabin house to the ground. Then, Sir Paul should get a brand new and legal permit to rebuild it again and ‘”make it better” like his song says … or at least he could rebuild a similar one on the spot. Please do not level your Linda house Sir Paul! That woman ‘H’ does not deserve that much further sacrifice from your part. You owe her nothing! You gave her your love and gave her all and it wasn’t enough for her! However, we all that love you will support you and stand behind you 100% in whatever choice you make.

Karma is a bitch! "Sir Paul The Foolish" marries a legless whore WITHOUT a prenuptial agreement and whines when it doesn't work out. He has no one to blame but his own stupid self. And I'm sure he's a total bitch, a spoiled prima donna -- his karma has finally come back to bite him, mostly in the wallet!
