With Oxford Airport having chosen to rebrand itself as London Oxford Airport – and the real surprise in that story is that Ryanair aren’t involved in this latest attempt to redraw the map – are we nearing the point where we might as well just rebrand every airport in the country with ‘London’ at the start of its name? After all, a fast Intercity train from Birmingham International might get you to the heart of London even faster than venturing onto the Tube from Heathrow.

But, I suspect the conflating of London and Oxford as a single location might just be the key to pushing a visitor to Britain over the edge into a full-on gibbering breakdown, possibly when they get lost in the streets of London Oxford and find that the fabled Tube has four wheels and travels on the road.

  1. It’s not even in bloody Oxford. If they want to call it London anything they should call it London Kidlington Airport.
