Jonathan Meades – At McDonalds Gosport
Part of an article Times Magazine 2nd October 1999Reproduced with kind permission of Mr Jonathan Meades (by Email)And one Sunday lunch time in Gosport, for want of absolutely anywhere else to eat, I watched with ghoulish fascination as several naval problem families staged a party for their children. The adults were verbally threatening, massively hung over, the children were snot-encrusted, foul-mouthed.
Woolwich in one of Greater London’s anomalies. Like Gosport, it is, or was, a garrison town. Such towns tend to hermeticism and violence.
