Our local BBC news deviates today from its usual diet of marrow growing competitions, mass stabbings, and mass stabbings at marrow competitions. Interviewed live from Florida is none other than Sir Richard Branson, the world famous entrepreneur and millionaire.
Apparently Sir Branston was due to fly over to Ramsgate International Airport with millionaire adventurer Steve Fossett (see below). He's probably booked himself a cut and blow dry at Sweeney Todd's, next to the pie shop. They specialise in the 'older man verging on a pony tail' look, which appears to be de rigeur around here.
Anyhow, Sir Pickle was bemoaning the fact that Steve's private jet couldn't take off after all, due to it having a bit of a leak and the wrong kind of wind. Sounds like one of his trains.
