    "Remote forest depot" on the outskirts of a town of 11,614 (Michendorf), on the outskirts of a town of 164,042 (Potsdam) on the outskirts of a city of 3.47 million (Berlin). Not even remotely remote.

      It's a Daily MailFail article. The Mail is more recently famous for its X causes / prevents cancer nonsense, and the peculiar way it treats female readers (it's sort of in favour of women in some abstract sense, but still hasn't come to terms with the fact that some of them, including in its own newsroom, might have opinions on something beyond shoes or wallpaper). You might know it best for its support of fascism in the 1930s.

      For the majority American audience: Britain's newspapers are terribly partisan, and many are practically broke so that any "firewall" between editorial and advertising is tattered at best. As a result they're a bad joke when it comes to fact checking or impartiality on almost any subject.

        Believe me, I would have preferred to link to a different source, but as far as I can tell, this is the only / original place those photos were published.

      I'm kinda feeling like the precise location of this place wasn't the main thrust of the blog post.

    Are we sure this isn't actually a Time Lord parking lot?
