Say the Government.Plans are afoot to move it nearer the mainland to make the area look "neater and more British" A trusted Whitehall source said "Look, we can't go on with that awful untidy gap around The Solent area. It looks scruffy and it adds ages to the journey of any shipping as it wends its way slowly up to Southampton. We could move the whole thing north, glue it on near Lee-on-Solent and Calshot, cut a nice new easily accesible port in the south side near Ventnor and Bob's yer proverbial! The Southamptonites might be annoyed at first but once they have enjoyed their new lake they'll come round."
Isle of Wight "too untidy to be left like that"
