Oh for pity’s sake - first the West Pier collapses, and now the Palace Pier goes up in flames. What’s going on here?

Despite its tackiness, I was quite dismayed to see the Palace Pier (sorry, Brighton Pier) on fire last night - until I heard that the Brighton Pier is largely responsible for the delay in repairing the lovely West Pier. It seems that the Brighton Pier management didn’t want any commercial competition and resented the fact that the West Pier Trust was receiving lottery money, so they’ve tied up proceedings for years.

In light of that, all I can say is: Burn, baby, burn!
