Another great English tradition


We’re in Whitby, which by our list doesn’t have a pier. The residents think it does, however, so at the invitation of the lighthouse keeper of the lighthouse on it we came, we saw, we climbed and flashed at the top of if.

We didn’t know there was no camping round here, but had decided a night in a B & B was a necessity for the trip anyway. We checked into one, but they’re much more expensive than we thought — thus instead of a room each and much needed privacy we ended up all sharing a family room.

Here’s Eric and Ernie tucked up on the kingsize:

Jon was voted the ‘14th Most Influential Person in the West Midlands’ in 2008. Subsequently he has not been placed. He’s been a football referee, venetian blind maker, cellar man, and a losing Labour council candidate: “No, no chance. A complete no-hoper” said a spoilt ballot. Jon wrote and directed the first ever piece of drama performed on Twitter when he persuaded a cast including MPs and journalists to give over their timelines to perform Twitpanto. But all that is behind him.
