The New European reveals its plan to troll Skegness

Something in The Spectator about Brexit.

As an American, I propose that Troll Skegness be the official name of the place.

That will go well with Milton Keynes and Bognor Regis. :mrgreen:
Yes, that one.

It just so happens that I bought a copy of that newspaper this morning (I buy one occasionally, just to get an alternative view...). I shall read that article with interest.

By the way, as an alien you might not be aware that the cover picture is an adaptation of a famous publicity poster in which a jolly fisherman is saying "Skegness - it's so bracing!". This is something of a standing joke since the climate of NE England is such that "bracing" means "usually cold, often with freezing winds".

Actually, apart from the climate, I rather like the place. I have a fondness for traditional seaside resorts, and it has a harbour, and a medieval castle (remains thereof), and the best public park I've ever visited: http://peasholmpark.com/events.html

Yeoww! - Mother Of All Brainfarts - that's Scarborough, not Skegness...
