    An interesting opinion given:

    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East

    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Can we have one vote for the place we would like to go or is it going to be multiple votes.

    It's normally multiple. As for what day however, Fri/Sat? (more whistling).

    I think I've already answered this point at post #17. Geography isn't just about latitude and longitude, as I am sure you know. Peterborough (of which town I am by now heartily sick, but I'll persevere) has had an interesting and chequered political career, moving between the midlands and the east without ever quite making it to the south, though it is a commuter town for London. In my original post in this thread I wrote, "Not sure whether it's south or midlands, but it's very well connected", but this has never been properly explored; it having been asserted, though never discussed or settled, that it was "the turn of the south" in spring. And Peterborough has been excluded from the poll on the basis that it is not in the south.

    This is what I meant about being undemocratic. (Calling it ungeographical was tongue in cheek - couldn't find the right emoticon. Maybe this one: . Or this: . Certainly not this: )

    It could have been interesting, though others may disagree, to do Peterborough (I hope never to have to type that name again) in the spring without settling whether it was south, midlands or east, and then decide (after the summer crawl in the north) whether to do south, midlands (or even east) in the autumn. However, this idea was obviously too subtle for a discussion venue such as this (that's not meant as a personal attack on anyone, just a reflection on the difficulty of discussing complex issues on a text forum rather than verbally) - it might have gone down better over a pint or two down the pub. Speaking of which...

    I think you're right, but anything above Camberley is North to me.

    Does multiple votes not mess with the results.If everyones second choice is the same then we end up going to someplace nobody preferred.Would it not be better with one vote and the top three go into the final.Winner takes all.Unless its a southern town that's in the midlands.

    Don't know all about that, but I do know that that place is in the Southern Midlands (no whistle).
