    Never mind, soon be able to stop them at the border Cam. Except the Englishmen in dresses, they will probably get through. Now, whatever happened to all the illegals that were 'expelled' by the French police from the Calais Camp? Are they all waiting for a Southerly breeze to help them across the Channel on their airbeds? What we need is a public spirited bloke with time on his hands, a nice boat and an air rifle to patrol the Kent coast.

    Don't see anything wrong with the guys footwear, when I lived out in tenerife I drank in the row of bars opposite the Arona Grand , daily all you would see were hoards of people passing to head up Mount Gaza, you could tell thats where they were heading cos they were kitted up as if they were going up Everest...
    Decided to do it myself one day, off I set, the kit, one mountain bike (well I was going up a mountain), shorts, t-shirt (tied round handlebars), and of course the essential flip flops, from the base of the path at the El Rincon apartments to the top of the path about fifteen minutes if I recall correctly, carried the bike most of the way up, mainly due to the roughness of the path not its steepness, passed loads of Everest wannabes, seemed to be mainly German, could tell by their comments as to my attire...
    Cycled around a bit when I got up there then headed back down, decent was a bit quicker only hindered by having to negotiate my way around the Everest wannabes I'd passed on the way up...
    Amazing what you can do in a pair of one fifty euro flip flops...
