That sinking feeling


ALLAN Mackintosh was on a Ryanair flight from London to Prestwick when the young lady next to him came across an advertisem­ent in the in-flight magazine for the Titanic exhibition in Belfast.

She turned to her Northern Irish mate and asked: “The Titanic was built in Belfast – is that right?”

The young man proudly replied: “Sure was,” to which she added: “Is it still there?”

“Obviously not a history or film studies student,” thinks Allan.
