    I think Ulrika was joking, Hornsea Freeport is a **** discount outlet centre.

    Indeed it is - best used only as a landmark when describing the route to Whiteheads chippy to fellow motorcyclists <ok>

    It went pop about ten years ago and ended up being taken over by Leeds Building Society, I think they flogged it to an investment group a few years ago.

    Whiteheads is the only reason to go to Hornsea anymore. Shame.

    Freeport was bollocks but did have a Nike shop at one point with some decent stuff in it.

    I once managed to get a flashy pair of Adidas golf shoes from the main outlet shop about 15 years ago

    Plus it's got a large overflow car park where I taught my daughters to drive - so not all bad

    Got some cheap Damart stuff from Hornsea freeport a long time ago.

    What's the odds on this new freeport being on the south bank?

    Freeport Schmeeport

    What about beer and fags? Budgets in the good old days were only ever reported in terms of beer and fags. Anything?

    Pfft

    I've read it as the whole of the Humber industrial area, right out to Goole and Scunthorpe.

    But have also heard only South Bank Conservative MPs were noted in the announcement.
