The man above is called James Jelly, and he's a football fan.
He wishes to attend a match in London featuring his own team of Sunderland who will be playing against Wycombe Wonderers, in some minor cup final. I hope I've got that right.
James looked at the rail fare and found it to be £260; an inordinate sum. So he looked elsewhere and found that he could fly to Menorca with Ryanair for £12.50, then back to Stansted (London) for £10.50, making a total of £23. A saving of £237.
Whoever said that 'the world's gone mad' was absolutely right.
