"BACK and to the LEFT!"

Though, to be fair, she has slightly more charisma and "vim" than the Grey Lady, which, you must concede, is not really an achievement.

So you have a choice between wet cement and a block of cement.

A Royal Warrant is a document that permits a company to include the royal coat of arms on products and as a part of their marketing - it works in exchange for supplying goods and services to the royals.

SNP claims it is either more evidence in support of Scottish economic independence or yet a further failure of the "English Parliament" to provide them money for water.

Well, of course. You are reading The Guardian.

You should read a reliable newspaper:

Apparently the following was censored out of respect:

Beeps at the checkout line at a super market?

Soccer (aka football) games.

The following joke: Britain is still mourning the shocking loss of a 96-year-old woman of natural causes.

I like the arrows around the bottom of the crown. These indicate the direction to twist the crown, when screwing it on to the king's head.

It's 2022. You think they'd change over to a pop top.

You probably already know this, but they only update the boxes when they wear out.

No, this is not about Your Mom!

Apparently, there are some left from even the Nazi King.

Size considered, that's asking an awful lot of a crown.

Yup.

There's still a couple hundred with Victoria's (Gawd Bless 'er) insignia. About 150 of Kaiser Eddy's. Mostly in Cornwall apparently.

Cornwall was hoping for an invasion from the Krauts to separate them from England. Instead, they were invaded and impregnated by Freedom.

Yes, a sad group of tree worshippers who fail to understand that they did not invent the pasty, and indulge in no-holds-barred inbreeding. If it wasn't for Norfolk it would be the Alabama of England.

Interesting fact. 100s of Cornish men and men were abducted by North African Pirates and sold as slaves. So I want an apology and reparations.
