Would Jubilee’ve It!



The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations will hamper economic recovery, suggests the Bank of England.

The “four-day weekend” may encourage some staff to take longer breaks or businesses to arrange extended closures.

The Bank has warned of an expected reduction of 0.5 per cent in GDP, making it harder for the economy to pull out of recession in the second quarter of the year.


No lesson was learned from 2011 when there was a similar impact with last year’s Royal Wedding and growth was reduced by around 0.4%.

Therefore a one day bank holiday would help mitigate any losses.


We await One’s response

What is Skelpt Arse?

To use a splendid bit of sadly, now seldom-used Scottish vernacular, whose 'arse' definitely needs 'skelpt'?

Who or what has been letting you down, letting our magnificent country down or who generally needs brought into line. Politicians? Overly politically-correct-mandarins? Jobsworth civil-servants? Service industry specialists who've not been servicing? You tell us!

We've got a sliding scale of 'skelpitness' from a light smack or a pure, red, stinger? You decide!
