EP’s Friday Light Relief

Man flies from Newcastle to London via Spain because its cheaper.

Joe Furness took the unusual route because it is less expensive to travel this way than on conventional public transport:

“Newcastle – London Train £78.50 Or Newcastle – Menorca🇪🇸  £15.99
Menorca – London 🇬🇧 £10.99 Car hire £7.50 Cocktail 🍸£4

I can have a night on a Spanish island, hire a car, have a cocktail on the beach, fly back to London and still have £40 left over….. OR I could have sat on a train. What would you have rather done?” Read more about this unusual journey.

  • 40 per cent are considering the name May – partly in homage to the PM – but just 4 per cent might opt for Theresa.
  • And only 1 per cent of parents say they might call their baby boy Nigel, now that the name is forever linked with Nigel Farage. Find out more.
