“-Following the revolutions in Russia last week, Prime Minister Lloyd George has come under fire for the UK Government’s botched attempts to evacuate British holidaymakers. We turn now to our correspondent in Petrograd.
-Yes, John. I’m here at Petrograd airport and have been talking to people cutting their holidays short in an attempt to get home safely. The Coalition Government has faced heavy criticism from holidaymakers for what they say was a hesitant and incompetent effort to evacuate UK nationals from Russia in the wake of the revolution. I’m joined here by Phil who took his family on a ten-day package holiday to a ski resort in the Caucuses. Phil, what has been your experience of the revolution?
-Well, I booked this package over the summer and we’re absolutely gutted that the Russian proletariat has chosen to launch its revolution now. At the end of the day, we’ve worked hard and saved our money to go on this holiday and it’s disappointing that our enjoyment has been marred by people seeking fundamental human rights. We’re gonna try and get the Provisional Government to pay the excess on the holiday insurance but I’ll not hold me breath.
-As you said, John, some disgruntled holidaymakers. Back to the studio.”
