People returning from holidays abroad or in the UK pose a significant threat to others, according to a social trends report. ‘The modus operandi is to invite friends to a dinner party where they are subjected to a lengthy and tortuous account of the host’s fortnight’s holiday in Benidorm or Newquay,’ the report says.
Some only escape the evening after having endured a PowerPoint tour of the holiday. If not radicalised, they certainly feel frazzled. Margaret Hudson said ‘alarm bells should have started ringing’ when her neighbours posted a video of themselves sitting on a Newquay beach reading the Sun and wearing a knotted handkerchief on their head.
‘They were holding what I thought was a microphone, but my husband said it was a Mr Whippy’, Mrs Hudson said. ‘That evening with them was much worse than the one we endured with my brother after his funny holiday in Syria.’
