image for "Don't Go To Portugal" Britons Advised
The Algrave

The Government has advised all UK residents not to travel to Portugal, after three people drowned there.

Coming so close on the heels of the disappearance of little Madeleine McCann, this latest incident confirms just how dangerous a place the Mediterranean paradise really is.

Government spokesman, Jack Bollox told reporters:

"It may seem like an idyllic place to spend two weeks, but we think it would be extremely unwise for any British tourists to travel to Portugal for the forseeable future. We are continuing to monitor the situation."

The Algarve, now nicknamed the Algrave, has been a favourite with Britons, but with the sea off the west coast of Portugal being as choppy, wet and polluted as it is, along with the ever-constant underlying threat of disappearance to contend with, ministers are now advising holidaymakers to stay at home and visit the seaside in this country instead.

Said Mr Bollox:

"Blackpool's lovely at this time of year."
