May I draw your attention to a lady named Elizabeth Windsor who has been in the same job for sixty years. Her occupation is to be a representative of the British people, that is us lot. She is well past retirement age, even by Con Dem government standards; and has no intention of resigning. This week we celebrate her diamond jubilee; that means sixty years in the same job, like a diamond wedding. A former Prime Minister said "You have never had it so good" Well, we are not too badly off now. We can all say "Cheers, your Majesty" and enjoy four days of celebration. Pity about the weather...

Thanks Drone for letting us know where all the low life will be this Saturday.

Lowlife in your estimation. But people who are prepared to nail their colours to the mast for what they believe to be right. In your view people who believe in defending the NHS, state education & council housing are lowlife. If so, I am proud to be associated with them. Anyway, time you got back to hanging out your union jack bunting isn`t it, you obsequious little turd?

If I had six houses, infinite wealth, a staff of hundreds, private aircraft and a decent healthcare package I reckon I could stick the same job for 60 years too.
