20 places in Newcastle that are harder to get into than the US Capitol
Is the Robbo harder to fight your way through than Congress?
The world stood in shock on the 6th January as a mob of Trump supporters were able to access one of the most securitised buildings in America, the Capitol Building.
This should have been one of the hardest building to get into in the world. But, seeing as they were able to stroll on in and storm the Capitol with only a few pushes and shoves from security guards, I feel it is necessary to compare with Newcastle’s finest.
Trust me, some of these places are extremely hard to fight your way through, even if you are a Chloe Ferry lookalike.
