Yorkshire Hopes Beach Cean-up Campaign

Yorkshire today mounted a cheeky bid to take the crown for having Europe’s cleanest beaches from the holder, Portugal.

A five-year programme along 50 miles of largely sandy shoreline, from the artists’ village of Staithes to Withernsea, on the crumbling coast of Holderness, will also clean up Europe’s secondary category of rural beaches at coves such as Boggle Hole near Robin Hood’s Bay.

A partnership including Yorkshire Water and Surfers against Sewage is planning to double the county’s “excellent” ratings, bringing the EU’s blue flag to all eight main resorts.

I call it luck. No! Alderaan is peaceful. We have no weapons. You can’t possibly… What?! You are a part of the Rebel Alliance and a traitor! Take her away! Alderaan? I’m not going to Alderaan. I’ve got to go home. It’s late, I’m in for it as it is.

You don’t believe in the Force, do you? I have traced the Rebel spies to her. Now she is my only link to finding their secret base. I want to come with you to Alderaan. There’s nothing for me here now. I want to learn the ways of the Force and be a Jedi, like my father before me. As you wish.

Red Five standing by. Look, I can take you as far as Anchorhead. You can get a transport there to Mos Eisley or wherever you’re going. You mean it controls your actions? The Force is strong with this one. I have you now. She must have hidden the plans in the escape pod. Send a detachment down to retrieve them, and see to it personally, Commander. There’ll be no one to stop us this time! Escape is not his plan. I must face him, alone.

What!? Your eyes can deceive you. Don’t trust them. I’m surprised you had the courage to take the responsibility yourself. I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Still, she’s got a lot of spirit. I don’t know, what do you think? You think a princess and a guy like me- Hey, Luke! May the Force be with you. I suggest you try it again, Luke. This time, let go your conscious self and act on instinct. But with the blast shield down, I can’t even see! How am I supposed to fight?

    Ye-ha! A tremor in the Force. The last time I felt it was in the presence of my old master. I care. So, what do you think of her, Han? The Force is strong with this one. I have you now. Don’t underestimate the Force.

    Don’t act so surprised, Your Highness. You weren’t on any mercy mission this time. Several transmissions were beamed to this ship by Rebel spies. I want to know what happened to the plans they sent you. Look, I can take you as far as Anchorhead. You can get a transport there to Mos Eisley or wherever you’re going. Don’t underestimate the Force. As you wish. The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.

    Uh, no, they’re saying “Boo-urns, Boo-urns.” I’m going to the back seat of my car, with the woman I love, and I won’t be back for ten minutes! Oh, I’m in no condition to drive. Wait a minute. I don’t have to listen to myself. I’m drunk.
