      What About Poor Hull?

      Everyone has already forgotten about poor Hull. I think we need to all reflect on what Hull went through recently:

      Abandoned cars, sofas and cookers strewn across people's front lawns, the ever-growing threat of looting... and then the floods hit.

        Just like Slough then, but without the floods.

          Slough

          Slough: I always think of the "Come friendly bombs..." Betjeman quote.

          Speaking of bombs (what a lead-in), I remember my gran saying that the only bomb you had to worry about, during the Blitz, was the one with your name on it. This terrified her neighbours, Mr & Mrs Doodlebug.

          And now a true tale:
          During the blazing hot summer of 1976, I remember my gran saying that the weather in England had never been the same since they dropped the bombs on Japan at the end of the War!
