Fucking hell. The article itself is worth a read because it's horrible, nasty stuff.
I mean: "There’ll be one comedian in your life who thinks it would be a really normal and achievable idea to drive to a seaside town, forgetting that it was taken over by racists in the mid-2000s. And 1,000 hours later, there you’ll be, sullenly eavesdropping on a couple at a service station while you tend to a seasonal latte and wait for everybody to come back from the toilet. “You’ve just got to buy the bullet,” the woman says, with force. “Is that the phrase?” the man replies. “Yes, so you’re invested, and can’t back out.”"
So everyone from a seaside town is racist and thick? What the fuck? How did the Guardian allow this to be published?
Obviously it's supposed to be tongue in cheek but it's all done in a sneery, condescending, anti-prole tone. Also completely unaware that a lot of Seaside towns have big issues with poverty, and seasonal stuff/bank holidays is a source of income desperately needed. If people get more days off (mint) and it puts some money into places that need it, what's the fucking problem?

Spa-ike? Tea whenever you fancy? Mature chat about political events? MAYBE YOUR WORK EXPERIENCES ARE MORE PRIVILEGED THAN OTHERS AND PEOPLE WHO HAVE IT HARDER WOULD LIKE MORE TIME OFF.
I'm raging about this like.
