The Isle of Wight yesterday

The Isle of Wight is to become a tourist attraction.

A fact finding team has returned from America with the intention of opening Alcatrazworld on the Island, potentially attracting millions of ghouls wishing to see electric chairs and death row cells.

The new tourist information officer said "At the moment we only have some village stocks at a church, but are looking on E bay. We will be lifting ideas from York Dungeon, The London Dungeon and Tussauds."

The relatively unknown remote Island is almost unpopulated with an attractive prison and bird sanctuary. 99% of its population are quite pleasant criminals.

Plans are afoot to harden the criminals to make Alcatrazworld more impressive. Nearby is the sea and the U.K.

"The U.K. has always been an attraction with castles and palaces etc. so we are hoping that a percentage will come over on a new planned bus service which will operate Mondays and Thursdays from 11.0 a.m. to tea time." Said the governor of nearby Parkhurstworld, Isle of Wight.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
