Clive Lewis Promises to Hold Another Referendum

Flagging leadership contender Clive Lewis is attempting to pick up the Corbyinite republican vote, not by refusing to sing the national anthem or kneel for the Queen, instead by offering the public a referendum on whether or not to abolish the British Monarchy.

Corbyn Refuses to Bow to the Queen

As everyone around him nods their head to acknowledge Her Majesty, Corbyn stubbornly refuses to bow. He then winks to a colleague. Emboldened, Jezza not selling out on his republican views…

UPDATE: Team Jez say Corbyn observed the correct protocol and that he was not expected to bow. They reckon Theresa May got the protocol wrong…

UPDATE II: Guido and Damian McBride have had a look through the archives at previous State Openings of Parliament to check the precedent.

The Treasury has approved a doubling of the sovereign grant, which will go up from £40 million last year to an estimated £76 million next year. This will continue for the duration of the works being carried out. Have they got Baroness Scotland in to do it up? Guido has asked the staunch republicans in the Labour leader’s office if they will be standing up for the taxpayer…

Team GB Sing National Anthem on Victory Jet Home

Victorious Team GB athletes launched the first of the days renditions of “God Save the Queen” while departing Rio on BA’s specially chartered VictoRIOus 747. Team GB’s post-Brexit spirit seems fine just hours after Owen Smith begged for “a Britain we can be proud of once more.”
