I DON'T FANCY BEING BESIDE THE SEASIDE
Hooray, hooray, it's a holi-holiday!
As alert viewers will have noticed,
it's summer. And accordingly, your reporter's thoughts turn to the
idea of a holiday. Now, here at World Of Stuart we're not fans of

the sites as reasons to visit their town.

Okay, so much for the West. I wonder
where all the glamorous people
from London go when they fancy a day or two at the beach?

Yes, it would appear that it is.
Apparently, tourism in Britain is on
the decline. Quick, someone call Sherlock Holmes.
