Adventures with Funbus (and Neil Young)

Step one: Procure a friend with a FunBus.
Step two: Summer.
Step three: Add friends but only the vaguest sense of actual direction.
Step four: Rediscover that bits of Kent* are actually quite nice.
Step five: Ignore rain at any festivals you attend.


To be honest, Neil Young was an amazing performer but didn't really do it for me. But Supergrass were ace. And I am now a truly British person for I have stayed at a proper British campsite. It was good. I was expecting it to be all Carry On and seedy, but it was great.

Well. Up until the owner started talking about how various bits of Kent* had been ruined by the invasion of "The Foreigners".

Oh dear.

The all-important questions of the day (apologies in advance to the tourist board)

Sometimes my job throws up some interesting questions. We get requests flying across the intermawebs from journalists, poor hapless souls, looking for answers to life's dilemmas and insolvable problems.

Falling distinctly into this latter category, selected inboxes all over the country had the following plaintive plea from a certain business publication today:

1. What are the benefits for you/your firm/staff/customers/suppliers of
being based in Crawley?

2. What are your concerns about Crawley from a business point of view?

3. How do you see Crawley developing as a business hub?

I do pity the poor chap working on this article. I really do. Polishing turds is difficult.

My answers (MEANESS ALERT) as follows:

1. Few and diminishing.
2. It’s a hole.
3. Very much dependent on the rest of the UK being wiped out by nuclear fallout.

Poor Crawley. But really. Anyone got betters ones? In the comments, please...
