"Basingstoke it is." "Then make it so."
I never think of Basingstoke (or indeed anywhere north-east of Winchester) as "proper" Hampshire, but even I must feel sorry for the people of Basingstoke, who have been wiped from the map by a Google error, at least temporarily - as witnessed by this screenshot taken five minutes ago:

I note that the Wiltshire village of Ramsbury is there, but Wokingham has also vanished. Scale is clearly beneath their notice.

It is a bit random. Wokingham will appear in you zoom in enough, however, whereas Basingstoke remains terra incognita...

Chineham exists, at least!

I'm sure Mr Gove would employ her!
