ANC moves Edinburgh depot to Africa
Your deliveries may be slightly delayed
Readers expecting urgent deliveries via courier ANC's Edinburgh office should be aware that - according to a link on the company's website - this could take a little longer than you might expect:
That's right. As our correspondent Ian Hapke notes:
I'm sure that all those folk wanting to emigrate (legally or otherwise) into the UK would love to know the African location of their local Star Trek/TransMat transporter - instead of doing it the hard and dangerous way and clogging up scarce Spanish and Moroccan resources, all they need to do is to swim out to it, and honest, guv, they'll materialise near a whisky bond...
Those of you with a cartographical bent can see what's happened here: the depot in question now lies at 0 degrees of longitude and slap bang on the equator. Nicer weather than Edinburgh, we're sure, but a little inconvenient unless you've got a hovercraft. ®
