Tory MP wants every home in Britain to have a portrait of the Queen

https://metro.co.uk/2021/06/24/tory-mp- ... -14823652/

Not the same as on the cover of the Rolling Stone..

When asked if Boris Johnson had a portrait of the Queen in his lavishly decorated Downing Street flat, his spokesman wouldn’t answer.
And most Labour MPs want a triptych of Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot.

Personally I’d insist on a portrait of Audrey Hepburn.

Adolf H. did not have a salary. But he got royalties on his book (each household), photos, merchandise etc. At one stage his assets stopped being taxed. But Goering was the richest.

Most Irish homes had these

I’ve been looking around the household and, not counting family pictures, the closest thing I can find to a portrait is a rather dramatic image of Annie Leibovitz perched on a (hood ornament) gargoyle extending from the Chrysler building.

Politicians north and south condemn Troubles amnesty plan

A spokesman for Mr Coveney said: "The Irish Government discussed with our UK colleagues the commitments of the Stormont House Agreement and strongly advised against any unilateral action on such sensitive issues.

Another broken agreement by BJ et al.

Dawn Butler ejected from Commons for saying Johnson has lied repeatedly

https://amp-theguardian-com.cdn.ampproj ... repeatedly

However, in a chamber where MPs must refer to each other as the “honourable member”, accusations of dishonesty are forbidden. An official glossary of other unparliamentary language not permitted by Speakers in recent years includes “blackguard”, “coward”, “git”, “guttersnipe”, “hooligan”, “rat” and “stool pigeon”.
I wouldn't call Boris any of these names.
Does not include 'post box'.

Dave Allen had it right.
