    You sure? I still think there’s a twist in this movie yet. If nothing else the remaining run time suggests there’s more to come.

    I have no wish to reduce a world event to the levels of football.
    However I do hope all at WFC are watching to absorb the lesson of how to organise an event or indeed a club or team.

    Spellbinding spectacle.

    I want to build my garden cabin. All the neighbours have gone quiet today. Is it ok to go outside and use a circular saw and hammer drill, or do I have to wait?

    You have to wait until tomorrow. No noisey building work permitted on Bank Holidays.

    If you can time any hammering with the drumbeats you might get away with it. I've had to shoulder the arm of my pressure washer for the day.

    The Queen was, apparently, very fond of a garden, so I’m saying ‘yes’.

    An homage to The Great Escape perhaps?
    I can't help but think if Pozzo had organised today there'd have been 27 gun carriages and no coffin.

    you’re brave, a near riot on our street WhatsApp when someone jet washed their drive during the current drought.

    They’ve put it down to youthful enthusiasm.

    Lots of young people do go through a bizarre phase when, having been told to share, play fair and be kind through childhood, they mistakenly believe this may be applied to the actual running of the Country.

    Seems to be walking forever and 2 more services to come .

    No wonder King Charles looks like a few years older then he is .

    I’m only watching now for the bit where the servants get entombed with her so they can serve her in the afterlife. Do you think the ones who haven’t received P45s have realised why yet?

    Anyone got any ideas what we can try and con the huns of the nation to queue 24 hours for tomorrow?

    I'm watching Traffic Cops on 5star
  16. I wonder how much her pre-paid funeral insurance premiums were ? Guess she didn't take out the one which saves your family all the trouble and misery ?
    She could have chosen some jollier music. All seems a bit downbeat and low-key.

    Food and heating?

    Of course, silly me.

    Diminishing our influence on the world stage and loosening ties with the most influential leaders is the best way to become richer and help the poorest.

    Why didn’t we think of it before!

    I know the Royals aren’t for everybody but what an amazing tribute and makes me proud to be British.

    Well as you well know, I didn’t back leaving the EU, influence being one of the reasons why, but foodbanks tell you all you need to know about what your fantasy of soft power means to the least well off.

    I used to feel that way about our football hooligans. Ok, they could get up to a few reprehensible antics, but no one in the World could deny the spectacle.

    Now I can’t so much as throw a plastic chair at a Belgian without PC Woke claiming it’s some sort of ‘public order’ offence.

    It’s true, This Morning has never been quite the same since Phil and Holly replaced Malcolm Muggeridge and Joan Bakewell.

    I’m sure had you gone through with this errand you would be lynched with the assailants getting away with it as all police are otherwise engaged today!

    Well, people can dress it anyway they like, but a bank holiday, some nice parades and David Beckham are scant consolation for a nation where increasing numbers of people are unable to heat their homes or feed their children.

    Much as they nation has 'come together' to mourn her maj and to pile on Phil And Holly, give it two months and the reality of a cold winter where you can work your arse off but still not afford the basics will be front of mind for everyone again.

    The issue for me was when our sloppy hoolies were utterly outmuscled by professional and organised gangs of Russian thugs.

    We rested on our laurels and paid the price.

    Yep, absolutely this. Funnily enough, you’ve got Moose over here arguing against the exact sort of cold, hungry lives those Russian yoof suffer through, when it’s exactly what we need to get back on top.

    Absolutely. But the Royals can only help with the conditions to succeed.

    Political choices are then made by parties elected by the people.

    The monarchy isn't responsible for the mess the country's in - the useless democratically elected politicians are the problem. Come on Charles, parliamentary democracy has had its day! The nation is crying out for you to seize the wheel. Start by getting Schofield's head on a Spike!

    Those weren't Russian thugs. That was a Russian Special Supporter Operation.

    Alarm set for 5am. First care visit at 06:45 and my last one tonight ends at 22:00.

    Can't even get a bloody pasty to eat while driving between visits. Everywhere's shut.

    I can't eat marching soldiers and bloody military music. Bunch of bustards.

    Surprised you eat Cornish Pasties, doesn’t Prince William as Duke of Cornwall get a penny royalty for each one?
