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...
