ROBOTS have asked if instead of Sunderland, Wakefield and Macclesfield they can work somewhere nice, like Bath.
With a robot workforce likely to take over up to 30 percent of manual jobs in the North in the next 12 years, the robots have asked if those cities are the only options available.
Robotic arm, Tom Booker said, “All I really know about Wakefield is that it’s where Black Lace come from. And that’s all I need to know.”
Fellow robot, Emma Bradford added: “I’m sure Sunderland’s quite nice.
“I’ve never heard anyone actually say it or even imply it, but they voted strongly for Brexit despite the possibility of it costing them jobs at the Nissan factory so they must at least understand irony.”
Bradford added: “My brother-in-law is a sat nav in a Nissan Micra so he should be able to tell me all the nice places to go to in Sunderland. In fact, he’s just texted me.
“Oh. That’s horrible.”
