    At least 19 people have been killed in the attack on a tourist hotel in Tunisia's resort of Sousse, an interior ministry official says, I think I might possibly/maybe pick Greece.

    Definitely Greece!

    Makes me so sad, a poor country, just over the Med from Europe, with friendly and welcoming people. They should be benefitting from tourist funds, aiming to develop their economy to reach our levels.

    Then religious fuckwits just screw it up.

    My niece is engaged to a Tunisian she met on holiday. I hope this shows her how fucked up the country could become, as she hasn't listened to date. She's not due to go out there until October anyway as she's moving to France to work, hoping he can get across there too.

    Haven't you sat her down to watch Shirley Velentine yet?

    Foreign office expected to say it's too dangerous to travel there later today. Your insurance will cover you though.

    Your insurance won't be interested unless the FO say it's dangerous.
    My wife wanted to cancel in October when we were going, I was almost going myself. There's no way I'd go near there or any other North African country now.

    Hammamet :)
    That's where we went - Army base round the corner, and there was an armed check point very near our hotel. They might even make an effort to stay awake at it now!

    It'll be crawling with soldiers now, I wouldn't worry :)

    So my girlfriend and her mum are dealing with Thomson cook. Id be there myself if I wasn't working today.

    Anyway, we are now going to a place in Turkey despite us still being happy to travel to Tunisia. Same days ect but they have charged 140 more. Surly they should have covered the additionally charge given its there choice to amend our holiday?

    I've been in the past, but now wouldn't go to Turkey either. Looking at the map, the Tenerife islands are only an inch or 2 away from Western Sahara, a hot bed for mentalists. A few energy drinks and a pedalo will get them to Gran Canaria.

    There must be a good chance that these resorts breed contempt among the locals, that the militants exploit. All these seemingly rich Westerners, staying in all inclusive resorts, rarely leaving them, stuffing their faces with unlimited food and alcohol, living a lifestyle unimaginable to those who serve them and live around them.

    There's a slight danger of over worrying here. I've been to both Tunisia and Turkey and very rarely was I ever killed in a sun lounger

    Tunisia is a hell hole as it is, not sure why anyone would willingly go there anyway, unless their a fan of getting their women folk fondled by random strangers on the street while getting your wallet nicked and/or being spat at for showing too much skin.

    We're just seeing if it runs it's course. She's a big girl now and can make her own mistakes!

    Now just hold on a second - you mean to say that there's streets populated with foreigners outside the gated paradise of the resort?

    I am sure one or two snaggle toothed "guards" will easily prevent attacks at these places if the chips were down.

    Seriously though - if you had a holiday to Tunisia booked this summer would you now cancel it? I would.
