Anglia News

Some Mondays are just oh so very quiet on the Anglia Newsdesk. After they’d done a piece on the new surface drainage in Great Yarmouth (after this mind, not before) they dropped down to Essex (they only go to Essex in moments of desperation) to do a story on the new Hollywood-style sign as below which has been erected by the local council at a cost of £400,000 to ‘promote the town’. Some things are just intrinsically amusing, are they not?

    That sign is wrong.

    Everyone in Essex knows it should say either:

    BASILDUMP

    or

    BAS VEGAS

    I thought you would have something to say about that one : )

    BASIL BRUSH

    would look nice.

    Now I’ve got flipping l’esprit d’escalier. It must be catching. How, how in the name of all that is orange did Foxy Basil miss out in Orange Week.

    I don’t actually know anything about Basildon except that I have taught at Probation there. That was all I needed to know.

    Apparently an eye-witness report from White Van Man states: the letters stand as high as me and they are begging for some graffiti.
