    See Final Resting Place Of Mr Blobby

    Just seen this in the news, It's from the mirror which is not the greatest paper but the article seems some what sympathetic to urban exploring in so much as they chose to include quotes from Urbanexboi such as "We never break into places, as this is illegal, and if we are asked to leave we do so immediately." which they could have chosen not to do.

    Urbanexboi, if you are here what are your thoughts on the article

    Well the Mirror are a bit behind the times. Mr Blobby's house was knocked down at least 6 months ago as I reported in this thread.
    That article implies it is still there to be visited. Hardly the greatest journalism in the world.

    Ha ha yeah i picked up on that, i read the article like 3 times and theres only one mention that it got pulled down but no time or anything. Its a pants article, but anything that paints us urbexers as anything but yobs is a good thing. Also i read that report at the time bertie and remembered being saddened in hindsight maybe i should have said more about the mirror being a naff paper with naff journalism.

    The Daily Mail (of all papers!) has a regular flow of Urban Exploring articles similar to this that are generally sympathetic portraying us as photographers first. But just like this article they are usually on places that have been on the radar for years and are usually reported as "newly discovered" or similiar.

    I was not aware of the daily mail doing that. I only followed the mirror on fb cos my workplace was mentioned in it a couple of years ago in a good way i mean.

    this is typical of a Daily Mail article... and notice that the emphasis is on the photos and is generally not critical

    To be fair it doesn't really matter, even if they got every fact spot on an article on Dunblobbin is hardly going to be nominated for a Pulitzer!

    How dare you say that about Mr Blobby. That's blasphemy. In some countries you would be stoned for uttering such remarks.
