The whole UK is united in solemn mourning for Her Majesty vs have you seen social media?

IS the whole country as one, brought together by grief for our monarch no matter what your political persuasion, or have you seen social media? Find out: 


The nation is respectfully observing the passing of a woman who served her country without complaint for 70 years

Social media

If you would prefer to believe the above do not look for any reason look at Twitter, where a veritable festival of disrespect began on Thursday and is yet reaching new heights


All Britons, whether Scottish, Welsh or Northern Irish, have come together to mark the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, a constant in their lives

Social media

Want to keep thinking that? Avoid Scottish, Welsh, and especially Irish voices on Facebook, where very different opinions on the Queen, the monarchy and indeed English history prevail


The entire world, from the Commonwealth and beyond, is shaken by the loss of the longest-serving monarch since Louis XIV, and they share our pain

Social media

If that’s how you see the world you’ve likely never heard of TikTok but, still, stay the f**k off TikTok if you don’t want to see sassy American teens dancing and profanely blaming all racist and colonialism entirely on one specific, recently departed, person


All of Britain is following the ten-day mourning period rigidly. Days are spent watching tributes and laying bouquets. The country hasn’t spoken as one like this in years

Social media

The media is speaking as one. The actual residents of Britain are speaking loudly and plainly and being entirely ignored. Funny how the Daily Mail turns six mean tweets about Doctor Who into a story but has no idea this is even happening, isn’t it?

'My joke about current events was tasteful but you, someone I don't like, have crossed a line'

WHILE many jokes about current events have successfully walked the line between compassion and humour, I’m afraid you – who I do not like – have gone too far. 

At a fraught time like this many of us, myself included, are harmlessly satirising proceedings while being careful not to punch down. But instead my long-term rival and sworn enemy has piped up with a joke that should see them cancelled into oblivion.

My gentle ribbings have proved that it is still okay to laugh at a time like this. My wit was clever rather than crass, daring rather than depraved. Disgracefully you, who were always a twat, were the opposite.

Your lack of tact is typical of someone with your political leanings and taste in films. I am shocked and appalled that someone I hold in such low regard could sink still lower.

If you believe what you said to be acceptable, it says a lot about you. That you could think such a quip was good-natured and well within the bounds of taste proves your unfitness to remain in society. You should be arrested or at the very least silenced forever.

And you think my joke was beyond the pale. You! A person without scruple, morals or decency! Having the temerity to judge my subtle, measured jocularity!

No, your joke went too far. It crossed every line. You knew it did when you made it and you wanted the outrage you have received. And just when Britain is suffering so. You f**king prick.
