Cop Sharm El Sheikh

Well, our lords, ladies and leaders were never going to slum it again in a Northern European post-industrial city which is why they’re going to cop Sharm El Sheikh.

Glasgow may very well mean Dear Green Place but it’s not known as baking hot.

And the River Clyde is hardly the water playground the Red Sea offers which I know from Jordan.

You sphinx you know Egypt

Water everywhere: Coral Sea Water World

For some that’s not enough because it doesn’t have a pyramid or a sphinx.

You’d need to head 395kms south-west from the Sinai Peninsula.

And of course that’s why many visit Egypt.

And why The Scary One passed on our invitation to go to write about Sharm back in the day.

TUI puts U in the middle

Lying back on the job: The Red Sea

With the eyes on the world’s leaders at Cop27 from November 6-18 there will be renewed interest in the Egyptian resort.

All things aside it is refreshing to see Sharm recover its status from the 2005 atrocity that saw 88 people lose their lives.

And the credit there is to the people on the ground and the holiday providers who have restored confidence among tourists.

Our old go-to package holiday favourites and one-time employers TUI who look after everything for you.

So we can enjoy turtles on the coral reef, take a Jeep across the Sinai desert and party in Naama Bay’s nightclubs.

And yes if it’s good enough for the Bidens, Macrons and Trudeaus why shouldn’t we get along for the ride?

Oh Coral

Under the sea: The Red Sea

TUI are offering four nights all inclusive at Coral Sea Water World from November 6, going out of Birmingham for £1,014 for two.

And that’s a £936 total discount.

Coral Sea Water World boasts two huge pools and a waterpark.

You’ll have three restaurants from which to choose, two Asian and an Italian.

Nabq Bay is a 35-minute drive from the bars, shops and restaurants in lively Na’ama Bay.

The best resort

Way to go Joe: Pres Biden

The resort itself is jumping with a football pitch where you can channel your inner Mo Salah, a tennis court and spa.

And there are various live shows and music to get things going after dark.

And so what if our leaders are spoiling themselves wherever they are, they won’t be having the fun we will.

So cop on and cop Sharm El Sheikh.

And rock like an Egyptian.
