Today, the single biggest news story in Britain
is that our fragile Queen Mother
managed a helicopter
ride from her London
residence to Windsor Castle
, after falling and getting a minor cut yesterday afternoon.
I don't have anything against the Queen Mother, I'm sure she's a lovely person. But our Newspapers and Tv news shows have jumped onto this and made it a major news story for the past two days. Showing paramedic cars rushing to the scene of the acident with their blue lights flashing, I bet they only had to put an Elastoplast on her, and a medium sized one at that! Then the helicopter coming into land, making out this old lady is the bravest of the brave. She'd be brave if she was actually piloting the thing. Her passengers would be braver still.
2/10 for effort guys.
