BRITISH tourists on the Greek island of Kos are having their holidays spoiled by refugees’ stubborn desire to live.
Hard-working British people expecting a relaxing week in the sun are instead being confronted with bedraggled figures stumbling from the sea thanking God for allowing them to live one more day.
Norman Steele, from Darlington, said: “I’m trying to get a sun tan while reading a Ken Follett novel so I can’t have any distractions.
“And the children, all of whom have this really weird thousand-yard stare, put my wife off her dolmades even more than the dolmades did.”
Steele’s wife, Alison, added: “Why travel all this way just to be miserable?”
Sabah Zedan, who fled Syria, said: “The triumph of the human spirit over adversity can be terribly annoying for other people.
“I promise I will join in with the next drunken chorus of Sweet Caroline while trying not to think of my broken homeland.”
