More geographical high jinks. Wem beckoned, but sadly I’ve never been there, but being in Shropshire it’s bloody miles from anywhere. My mate Kev put in a spirited bid for Whitstable, but I vetoed it on the grounds I quite like it.
There might also be some comedic potential in being able to say you live in Wetwang. It exists. It’s near Driffield.
Now, down to brass tacks.
Wales. All of Wales.
Just kidding. Well, yes and no. It’s an extraordinarily beautiful country. But I don’t want to live there. Everywhere in Wales is sodding miles from everywhere else. But it is majestically gorgeous

You can’t chuck a rock without hitting a floppy haired Premier League footballer or one of the WAGs

Tiny little place a long way from anywhere since it’s in Lincolnshire. I can’t even recollect why I was there
