Hang out the aspidistras

Mooching round the "all you can eat for a fiver" section of Hannigan's Truss Boutique, I bump into Ken Barmy. His council is very excited because they are to have a pre-nuptial visit from The Royal Couple. Their library overlooks the processionsary parade and they've spent the day being vetted by The Riot Police Of Hearts (P.C. Neddy Strangelove and a team of dog handlers, most of whom have been remanded pending medical reports).

"The Mayor and Corporation will be presenting the happy couple with three pounds' worth of Ann Summers vouchers," he tells me.

They're a couple of months too late in the efficiencies process to be awarded the freedom of the city's public lavatories.

Three pounds' worth of Ann Summers vouchers doesn't get you much these days.

Couldn't they have stretched to an all you can eat buffet for Kate who seems to be wasting away on palace food?

Loosing the loo concession could be quite serious. They're only human you know.

Our newspaper wrote that there will be a lot of trouble in London streets while the Royal Carriage will drive through the city - but I think they only want to keep us foreigners from flying to GB, just like an aspidistra :-) And: "I say!", as Bertie Wooster might have said, do they think the three vouchers from Ann Summers make a sensitive present?
