Tattoo-shops, consulates, grim head-scarfed wives..

What do I know of Hull? Is it Kingston on Hull or just Hull, ‘Ull?

I remember it was voted Britain’s most crap town in 2003. Does it not reek of fish or has the smell evaporated with the decline of its fishing fleet? What else? John “two jags” Prescott was its most famous MP, it still has its own telephone company, no BT there. They play Rugby league, the football team is nicknamed the Tigers and the refusenik poet laureate, Philip Larkin, chose to live and work there.

And that’s about it. We usually stay at home on Bank Holidays but today we will break with tradition and visit the Uk Capital of Culture for 2017.
