Small island of the south coast of England. Extremely beautiful.
Unfortunatly foreigners and mainlanders feel the need to move there. although they will NEVER be welcome.
Mother: Shoot em baby! dont want anyone on our Isle Of Wight..
Pollyanna: okay mama.. wel feed em to our pigs..
Island off the south coast of England. The Big Diamond.
6 miles south of the two overner cities of southampton and portsmouth where Scummers come from (from dock strikes many many years ago). It held the second biggest pop festival in the known galaxy ever (600,000+) when countless 1000's of hippies lay on the pavements of every town and village out of their tiny's on strong pyschodelics.The island is run by a load of trumped up inbreds who wife swap in the woods on full moons. The law enforcement consists of dimwits transferred from other areas of the country where they're either too stupid to fit in or have caused some great calmity so that they can no longer stay. They also wife swap in the woods on full moons.
Many beautiful beaches,many beautiful people, many old twats retired from london. Two blinding festivals and alot of very talented artists and musicians. The biggest of the two feativals is The Isle of Wight Festival reveived 5 years ago, now hosts now around 75,000 each year. Acts have included paul Wellar, David Bowie, REM, Coldplay and 2007 The Rolling Stones will headline. The local fuzz mount a sniffer dog on the gate to discourage drug pushers. However the drug pushers just wait till they go for their 3 hour lunch break then wheel in their booty. Meanwhile the fuzz come back and strip search pensioners who may have brushed passed somebody smoking a joint 3 weeks ago or some poor git with prescribed medication for a dodgy ticker, all this the sniffer dog picks up(He too was transferred from another county for leg roggering). This caused outrage and many complaints where lodged of the treatment of innocent festival goers. This did nothing to help the local fuzz's reputation of having the foresight and intelligence of an argentinian dung beatle.
Apart from that the place is great, give it a try.
Musically, the Isle of Wight produced bands such as The Bees and Mista Mushroom.
Also famous worldwide for its yachting competitions, community and general snobbery but it should be pointed out the they are a minority and annoy most other Islanders.
However, life for anyone below the age of 65 can be very boring unless you are extremely rich or stupid. There are very little job prospects, the education system is terrible and the social exclusion rates are like those of a major mainland city. There is very little for kids to do, fashion takes 5 months plus to translate to the Island's people. The cost of living is quite high- for example, McDonalds raise the price of all the goods 10p more than mainland prices to account for shipping.
With all the negative stuff out the way, the air is cleaner, life is calmer; you feel more secure here than on the mainland. Raising your kids here in theory is great as you can let them out on the streets and you know that if they step one tootsie out of line, the neighbours will tell you all about it. Everyone knows everyone, probably related to someone, somehow. It's an excellent place to re-evaluate your life simply because you realise that you have so much going for life elsewhere. Plus, we have a couple of brilliant breathtaking festivals every year and Hendrix Played Here!!!!
Mainlanders: Grockles or Overners (Bloody Foreigners)

Well, I say (Express Surprise): Wuh!
Island Newspaper: The Isle of Wight Can Depress
Although we have had some ruff times in the past we are all fighting through it and making great friends doing so.
The Isle of Wight has a very stereotypical view that we only have elderly people here - this isn't true. We have a wide scale of people children to the elderly.
