Most expensive sea crossing in the World.......Yeah, it is all bollocks, pish and mirrors, the smoke fucked off because it wasn`t needed.

Yep, you got that right Att!! I think I have only visited the Isle of Wight twice in my lifetime because of that, last time must have been about 50 years ago, and only live approximately 4 miles from the ferry crossing.

You don't know what you're missing, Jill, it's a magical place where time stopped about 60 years ago. We pop over at least once a year, sometimes on the Hover just because... just because it's the only scheduled hovercraft service ...IN THE WORLD! Take your pushbikes and cycle around. Or bus it.
Think the car-ferry cost helps to keep the riff-raff away too, which is fantastic by me. :twisted:

I spent many of my late childhood holidays on the island, and my mother (God bless her) always found something for us to do or see, and it was all done on foot or public transport (the trains are fuckin hilarious ;) lOl )
Last time I was there I was with "the evil one" and her dogs....still had a great holiday though!
I would love to return and show Tracy the sights, and in all honesty if it hadn't of been for this Covid fiasco we would have been camping in Shanklin this summer (that's where I camped last visit...and the site was perfect!)

It's also the location of the children's home which came under the spotlight due to decades of child abuse, popular with Jimmy Saville, Ted Heath and other nonce's of the era :shut:

NB Point of order: Nothing ever proven against Ted Heath, allegations made against him were part of Nick Beech's discredited fantasy. Which is a lot more than can be said about Mr Fix-It.

I'll watch that, however being on the BBC it's going to be biased towards the powers that be, apparently they knew about Sir Jim for decades but kept quiet about that too, unfortunately anyone who has different options are labelled loony conspiracy theorists.

I’m personally disgusted at the lack of ethnic awareness in this thread. It appears to contain mostly references to pleasant English countryside combined with motorsport, children or childhood memories and retired nautical types who symbolise stereotypical privileged classes. You will all be singing ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ next! Please redress this hideous imbalance! lOl

Are you suggesting we sing "The Camptown ladies" and "Pick a bale of cotton" at "The last night of the proms"?
