    I see now that the French and Spanish are cashing in on the plight of the stranded UK tourists by hiking up the costs in hotels, restaurants and car hire.
    I really hope that one day us Brits can repay this sentiment to our EU "friends".

    Jeez, the US has done more to help us Brits than our near neighbours!

    Not at all, nothing surprises me about these so called "allies", but certain countries have short memories of how we helped out in WW11.

    When last hear they were hoping to board a plane at 11pm to Manchester (I think!) then hire car down to Gatwick. I've been in meeting throughout today so I'm just catching up on texts now.

    It's going to be a long night for them, and heck it's been a long week for them, but I think Chris is just incredibly relieved to get back that at the moment he'll take anything!

    REALLY looking forward to getting word from him that they're all home safe

    Yep as is usually the case in my humble opinion.

    I'd far rather associate with the US than the rest of Europe, it's not said in an offensive way but I simply think as a people we have more in common

    (some of the horror stories I've heard about the prices EU people are charging stranded families for food etc. well, just disgusted)
