So, we’ve mentioned that we’re really looking forward to stopping at a Pontins camp on this trip. Specifically Southport, where we’ve both holidayed and my sister was a Bluecoat. Actually getting the chalet had been proving hard —you can’t book just one night anymore. So we had many a conversation with the press office and eventually sorted it.

But then we’ve fallen a day behind schedule, and trying to shift that booking is proving impossible. Two phone calls yesterday and three this am and they’re now not acknowledging we exist. Not sure what’s happening, but we press on down route 66 to Scotch Corner then a sharp right and on to Blackpool.

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.
