I suspect they're imagining VE Day like scenes as millions of Brits, freed from the shackles of the tyrannical European overlords, dance in Parliament Square with Vera Lynn, kiss policemen, lustily sing Land of Hope and Glory, and swing round on lamp posts like they're Gene Kelly whilst a Squadron of Spitfires flies overhead.

In reality, it'll be a few dozen mugs who have come from Hartlepool, Rotherham and Devizes, with the promise of getting the chance to meet Farage, and paying £50 for the privilege. However, Nigel cannot attend "on police advice" and the entire throng will go into Wetherspoons, get pissed, and start giving the police verbals. They won't actually hear Big Ben as they'll be singing "Two World Wars and One World Cup". There'll be an effigy of Sadiq Khan or Gary Lineker burnt, an event the Mail will describe as "good-natured joshing", and most importantly....

... It'll be raining.

I'd hope for fog or snow, but heavy rain and the annoyance (for them) of an Irish-named storm in full force making it unsafe.
The next name on the Winter storm list is... Ciara! :mrgreen:

Also noted is that the Dutch have joined in with the UK & Ireland this year, so a few Low Country names are also thrown in.

VE day, as imagined, happened to a few thousand off duty soldiers, some students, and every hooker and spiv in London. The rest of the country just breathed a sigh of relief, while a GI sighed as princess Margaret gave some relief.

...some genius even suggested, deadly seriously, that they just need a handful of people to hit Big Ben at the same time with mallets.
They could always hit Piers Morgan with mallets. He may not actually be a massivebell, but he's certainly a colossal bell end.

Half a million quid for Gammon to feel good about themselves.

I do like the idea that the Gammon can crowdfund the various stages of Brexit.

They were daft enough to bung their memberships into Farage's wallet, so why not keep tapping that vein.

4lb lump hammer, please. I keep one in the boot of my car, and it's called Leonard.

I've got an 8lb sledge, called Emily.

And a splitting axe. Oooh.

They've moved the goalposts over the last couple of days and are now adamant that the Duchy of Cornwall is technically tax payers money as well so Charles shouldn't be allowed to use funds from it to give to Harry and Meghan.

THE SUN SAYS There can be no justification for Harry & Meghan getting their annual £2.3m from Prince Charles

THE Harry and Meghan scandal must trigger a comprehensive new review of Royal finances: Who gets what, why, and what oversight Parliament has.

There can be no justification for the young quitters still getting any of their annual £2.3million from the Duchy of Cornwall which Prince Charles controls.

The Family seem to think of that vast £1billion estate as their private fortune. But it has simply been inherited by the eldest son of the monarch since 1337. If the Royals are abolished — because, say, public support dries up — the estate and its profits revert to the nation.

It is the nation’s property, Charles merely its guardian. So there must be complete transparency over how he spends the millions it makes, just as there is for the Sovereign Grant paid direct to the Royals by the Government.

We’ll say this too. UK taxpayers are fed up enough . . . but spare a thought for the Canadians. Why should THEY fund the Sussexes’ security till the couple are good and ready to move to LA?

They made their bed. They can lie in it. And they’re rich enough already to pay their own bills.




The Sun tries to convince its readers that Boris is strong and tough and stands up to Trump.


Battler Boris

REMEMBER Remainers claiming Boris Johnson would be Trump’s poodle? How’s that prediction working out?

On Iran he has attacked the President for ditching the multinational nuclear deal without a replacement.

On Huawei he is demanding to know America’s alternative, since they are so violently opposed to the Chinese giant building our 5G network. The Sun ­happens to agree Huawei is a risk, but at least Boris is speaking his mind.

And the PM is at odds with Trump over America’s reluctance to extradite death crash driver Anne Sacoolas.

He must not give up on that. Even the US public wants her to face the music. They recognise the simple injustice of letting her hide in the States, cocking a snook at victim Harry Dunn’s parents.

Not for the first time, though, Boris is proving critics wrong.





Still obsessing over Bercow:

Greedy Berc

THE preening, entitled arrogance of ­former Speaker John Bercow was never better exposed than by him blowing £1,000 of public money on a taxi ride.

Citing wafer-thin security fears, he saved himself a long train journey by taking a cab from Westminster all the way to Nottingham to lecture unfortunate students.

We take great pleasure in knowing that all of Bercow’s anti-democratic Remoaner tricks and verbose interjections were instantly negated by the Tories’ election win and the arrival of an infinitely superior successor.

The Government must block any honour for him, especially the peerage he wants.

So basically they disagree because Boris Johnson came out against something the US were already looking climbdown from pretty damned sharpish, asked a question they don't like but have to perform mental gymnastics to justify him on and for saying something he knows will make sod all difference anyway.

It's the Mail so it could be complete bollocks but it'll be interesting to see how The Sun spin this considering yesterdays editorial above.

Boris Johnson 'braces for last-minute demand from Donald Trump' for Britain to block Chinese tech giant Huawei from 5G project
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... uawei.html


I suspect they'll praise him for making the right decision about Huawei knowing their readers won't even notice the fact they've just praised him for not backing down to Trump on Huawei.
