The estimated 20,000 Brits who are stranded in Sharm el-Sheikh are doing their best to sound like they are not happy about the situation.
When interviewed for news reports tourists are muttering about ‘poor information’ and ‘not really knowing what’s going on’ while edging away, keen to get back to the bar of their all-inclusive resort before a queue forms.
“I was supposed to be back at work today but my flight was cancelled, so I’m stuck here in 30 degree heat when I could be sat in an office looking out of a window at the pissing rain. I’m absolutely gutted.” said Gary, from Reading, sipping at a cocktail.
“I’ve heard it’s been foggy in England, I bloody love fog. But I’m stuck here in the sunshine instead. Now if you’ll excuse me I’ve got to get back to my sunbed before somebody nicks it.”
When told that the government are doing everything they can to get holidaymakers home as soon as possible, Gary replied “I hope they’re not trying too hard, I’d hate for people to putting themselves out on my account.”, before heading off to go snorkelling.
