I walked along past Black Rock yesterday afternoon (I can't believe a patch of waste ground has its own Wikipedia entry), only to discover that the car park down there has been taken over by a group of travellers and their thirty caravans...

Where's Margaret Beckett?
It's often reported that travellers are disliked by the general public, but I don't think that's true at all. It's when they stop travelling that people don't like them.

Personally though, I'm all in favour. It's the first time that car park's been full since last summer, and it makes the place look like a Haven Holiday Park, which is just about the only thing Brighton lacks. The X Factor finalists were at the Brighton Centre on Saturday, so we need some sort of holiday camp for them to appear at next time they visit.

Of course, if it really was a Haven Holiday Park, it would come complete with satellite TV in the gold standard caravans.

Oh, hang on, it does...

Sky's the limit.
It's nice to know the local gypsies have a better quality of life than I do.
