Reports coming in

Breaking news just coming off the wire.

A Scottish Moderator sometimes known as 10W or more commonly known as Dubs is belived to have been taken Hostage by the Viet Taff.

He was last seen being force fed Alcohol in an establishment referred to by the Viet Taff as " headquarters". Headquarters is thought to be in the Upmarket Cardiff Bay area of the Fine City of Cardiff Capitol City of Wales.

As yet no ransom note has been received but it is thought the shadowy organisation is led by a rather suave individual who masquerades as an Airline Captain during the week.

As soon as more is known about the potential kidnap of this popular individual and the demands being made by his captors we shall let you know

Goodness I didn't realise they would be demanding so much.

Uumm but what if PPRuNe hierarchy don't actually want Dubs back, wonder what on earth they will do with him.

Think there is a rugby match on this afternoon maybe they will inflict that upon him, poor Bugga

Ah Cardiff ,Butte Road, Tiger Bay, Drapes spent a glorious three weeks leave there in the olden days, what a time,exotic eateries drinking and gambling clubs, dusky maidens flinging themselves at ones feet begging one to father blond haired blue eyed babies for them, pubs open 24 hours a day, not a policeman to be seen, twas heaven for one hell bent on a life of debaunchery, alas one hears its all posh now.

I suspect some sort of scam by the Viet Taff. Let's look at this VERY carefully:
1
He was last seen being force fed Alcohol
Since when has anybody needed to force feed Dubs with alcohol? They have obviously got the wrong person
2
Upmarket Cardiff Bay
Is there such a place?
3
individual who masquerades as an Airline Captain during the week
Well with that accurate description and about 80,000 members in here many of whom could easily fill it, it's going to take a looooooooong time to discover the culprit. The remarks about Rabbit and Air Wales are probably to divert our attention from the real culprit.
I suspect it is Dubs himself who is just trying to get a few more days away from work and has deamed up this novel solution.

Hey that's a good one.

"Yup. Sorry boss. Won't be at work on Monday. Seems I've been a bit taken hostage. Yeah, sorry about that. Bloody Taffs."

Perhaps work won't even notice? Isn't Dubs also known as "Stealth"?
Suave airline pilot? Yeah right.

Good luck Dubs.

Capt PPRuNe & PPRuNe Towers want to know how many other Mods you can take off their hands?

If you take a minimum of 5, they'll pay for the airfare to Cardiff themselves.

And you can keep Dubs; he drinks far too much of my whisky!!! In fact, how much do you want to keep him for at least a year?

Are the Viet Taff the same as the Viet Gwent? Or is the VT a rebranded version of the VG?

How do we know that's the real Viet Taff.

We will not bow to these demands.

Deeply worried about our Dubs incarcerated by those who should know better...

Even more worried about the possible 'dark side' of the previous poster..

Just rang my old mucker the Archbishop of Taff. Got his secretary who said he's been called out to a party with some locals and a geezer in a kilt.

Apparently Barry isn't expected back till about Wednesday, so it could be quite a party.

Shanwick will be a quiet area for a bit...

Oooer I got a phone call myself this afternoon, loads of distressing noises in the background.
Sounded like "whose round is it next? ", oh dear wonder how many rounds they are going to put into him
