Staines, Pomposity and Publicity

Nov 2nd, 2010 | By

I can’t resist a comment or two on the ridiculous issue that is happening in Staines. Some of the worthies of this town near Heathrow want to change the name to try and remove the image that the comedian, Ali G, has placed on them. And what do they want to change it to? Staines-on-Thames which sounds like something nasty is floating down the river.
