This is a satirical look at the Isle of Wight. It is a good natured poke at island life. It is a slice of the stories from The Spoof, a satirical on-line newspaper. There are various contributors.

Council blamed over road-signs

The offending sign
Councillors for the Isle of Wight are up in arms with the Highways Agency.

A new road sign has been erected on Forest Road heading towards Somerton which plainly states "Isle of White".

"We are not amused," said Ophelia Keyhole, 39, wife of Jeremiah Keyhole, leader of the Isle of Wight Chamber of Commerce. "The Isle of Wight has been called this for centuries, how can the highways agency get it so wrong? Not only have we demanded that they get the sign corrected as soon as possible, if not earlier, we have demanded a written apology on Isle of Wight TV."
