    Default Benidorm

    When I was a teenager in the early 70's I worked at a Kennels. The owners Mr and Mrs Foizey went on holiday every year to Benidorm. It was a thriving holiday resort even then. Makes you wonder when it transformed from a sleepy fishing village doesn't it.


    Oh.....there you have it. Sometime prior to 1950.

    Well, I'm fascinated by the modern history involved in this topic so it's unlikely I'll manage any sleep until I've researched it.
    I'm a low educated, total guttersnipe, dim witted moron.

    Hang on, I've just realised.
    There was a Labour government in 1950 so most of Britain must have gone over that year in the hope of getting out of their way for a week or so.

    You remember that bunch of idiots, they were the ones that tried growing peanuts in Tanganyika, a place that was useless for growing peanuts, but the idiotic project cost a lot more than peanuts - Labour governments are always peanut brained, just that lot actually tried it.

    Did anyone visit Benidorm before it changed from a sleepy fishing village to a tourist hotspot in 1950?

    Yes, the government that founded the NHS. One of the greatest and most important British Institutions ever to exists.

    One that still exists despote constant Tory attempts to dismantle it.

    Only a complete moron would ignore that to concentrate on peanuts...

    Anyone that feels the need to further point out that it contains abuse is clearly a total fucking moron who's also insulting YOUR intelligence by pointing out the bleeding obvious as if you were too fucking dumb to notice it.

    This has been a public service annoncement by Fork Me. Have a nice fucking day.

    Did you go to Benidorm when it was a sleepy fishing village Ponsonby? Being "well travelled" 'n all that?

    I'm amazed it got so busy by 1950 - I'd assumed it would have been the 1960s package deal boom.

    You'd have to be knocking on a bit to have gone there prior to 1950. Ponsonby would be old enough, but I doubt he would have bothered going until till they stopped doing tapas and started doing Watneys Red Barrel and scampi and chips.
