...who know about the county of Essex, I couldn't resist posting this.

Nick Ferrari, a morning radio host on a talk station called LBC, was interviewing various people in Essex about an upcoming political election in the town of Clacton, which is well-known as a retirement town for oldies from London.

Just north of Clacton is the seaport of Harwich, from where you can take a car ferry to Holland, Germany, etc.

At the end of his interviews, just as the closing music was playing to terminate the programme, Ferrari said "So never forget: Harwich for the Continent, Clacton for the incontinent".

I thought it was Frinton for the incontinent. But if I lived in Clacton and could look forward to my MP being of a certain ilk, my bladder might just start behaving badly.
