Ride James Blunt

As a thank-you for choosing to move to their Alpine retreat, the people of Verbier have named a chairlift after James Blunt.

There's something apt about that - a chairlift doesn't really take you anywhere you want to go, as as soon as you get off you head back where you started as fast as you can; you sit down all the while it's making a groaning noise; half the year it's pointless and shunned, left hanging in the air. Oh, yes, we can see why calling it James Blunt makes sense.

What's that, Victoria Newton? You have a joke, do you?

Maybe he should record a yodelled version of You’re Beautiful to show his thanks.

Er... yes. Thanks for that.
