Thought everyone knew that.

Too soon?
I demonstrated that they were spring and gas powered sport rifles. The kind you find at a travelling fairground FFS!
Ok a-c.

Ok.

Next time a car is stolen, remember to say “y’know officer, I think I might have had a rifle in the boot”.

You will get a much bigger response!

“The head of RAF recruitment has resigned in protest at an "effective pause" on offering jobs to white male recruits in favour of women and ethnic minorities, defence sources have claimed.

The senior female officer apparently handed in her notice in recent days amid concerns that any such restrictions on hiring, however temporary and limited, could undermine the fighting strength of the Royal Air Force (RAF), the sources said.

They said the service was attempting to hit "impossible" diversity targets.

The defence sources accused Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston, the head of the RAF, of appearing willing to compromise UK security at a time of growing threats from Russia and China in pursuit of albeit important goals such as improving diversity and inclusion.“

Actually, Brillo Pad's assertion that no new starter homes have been built is wrong. A friend of mine was involved in in building a few.

Well, 2 actually.

Very sad news. Whatever one may think of the monarchy, the Queen served with devotion and dignity. I really don't think we could have asked for a better head of state.

Should we thank her for her service?

I understand thanking soldiers and police and firemen and moonshiners… but thanking a castle/palace dwelling monarch seems a bit like thanking a handsomely remunerated CEO for their service.

*SHRUG* She could have lived a life of luxury and basically have done bugger all: she chose not to do so. I think she deserves our thanks.

Sex Pistols singer Johnny Rotten admits he will 'sorely miss' the Queen when she dies

JOHNNY Rotten, the Sex Pistols singer who famously railed against the Queen in her Silver Jubilee year, has admitted he will "sorely miss" her when she dies.
. . . .
But in his latest interview, he confessed: "I would sorely miss her us [Sic – Ed.] a human being on planet Earth."

He said: "It's not her fault she was born into a gilded cage."

The singer, who insisted God Save the Queen was about his political opposition to obedience to the monarchy, added: "Can I just correct this, just slightly? 'I will miss her' sounds ominous and I don't want that. Long may she live. I don't know about the 'reign' part, but long may she live."

Lydon, who also enjoyed success with Public Image Ltd after the breakup of the Sex Pistols, told how he adored royal pageantry and in particular the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding in 2011.

Well, instead of blackfyre Targaryens we have the house of Hewitt … so maybe Harry and Meghan can create some dynastic drama. A king across the water in 18th century parlance. “The pretender“ would be an apt historical title for a cuckoo and an actress.
