I've been dragged into work tonight so will be crashing out at about 8 am tomorrow. I will have a gloriously peaceful sleep missing the whole fucking thing. 

Hope the show goes well. Knock 'em dead.

In Australia, NRLW player Caitlin Moran has been suspended for one game and fined 25% of her salary (suspended) after comments posted about the Queen.

She is of indigenous heritage and posted about her people not being treated very well

The post has been deleted but was:

“Todays a good fkn day, uncle Luke announces his tour, and this dumb dog dies Happpy fkn Friday,”

I've got the news on waiting for Match of the Day. I'm not one to tell people how to grieve or what sort of emotional reactions they should have to people dying but the people lining up for this shit are beyond professional help. We're all fucked.

I wonder how wild you'd have to get for people to actively disrespect a minute's silence en masse.
You'd imagine an impromptu announcement that we'd be honouring Hitler or Thatcher would go down like a lead balloon in most of Scotland, but what if you were asked to take a minute to remember Peter Tobin? I reckon most folk who remembered the name would keep schtum just in case there was a Peter Tobin who raised funds for the club by knitting socks for kittens.
There's probably money for somebody willing to turn this into a study, [mention=70481]LeodhasXD[/mention]
I called a company once for technical advice and their technical manager was called Peter Tobin. It was shortly after the girl's body had been discovered below the church floorboards and I got the impression he was fed up on people commenting on his name. Seemed a decent bloke but I'm not convinced by a minute's silence.

I'll be wide awake tomorrow and will also miss the whole thing.

Kick off's at 3am my time (yes, I'd to look it up) and as I'm on the late shift, I won't be getting up.

 

ETA: It being on in the middle of the night and me being on the late shift are of course, just 2 of the many reasons why I won't be one of the 17 billion who are apparently going to watch it live.

A good indicator of how much Britain has lost its mind over Lizzie kicking the bucket.

Indeed.  It's a fever that started in A'deenshire and has infected the whole of our unitary nation.

The fine is actually 25% of her entire contract not a week or a months salary.

Its causing a stir down under because there have been male palyers convicted of assualt and rape who have received less punishment

As the majority of the country doesn’t know what NRL or any form of rugby is there really wasn’t much stirring happening. NRL statement https://www.nrl.com/news/2022/09/13/nrl-statement-on-caitlin-moran/

The Breach Notice proposes a fine equivalent to 25% of her current NRLW contract, wholly suspended, provided she fulfils a number of conditions. The Breach Notice also proposes a one match suspension in the NRL Women’s Premiership Competition. The fine will be suspended for a period of 12 months to be payable immediately should the Code be further breached in that period.

That woman who confused queueing to see the Queen in a box in Edinburgh (going around 7 times) with Alton Towers has now travelled to London to do it all over again.

Woman who viewed Queen's coffin seven times in Edinburgh travels to London to pay final respects (msn.com)

Mental behaviour.

Surely at some point someone who knows her should be sitting her down and have a wee chat?

The incredible (but not particularly surprising) thing about Lindsay Hoyle yesterday is not one person challenging it. 

They’ve let a lot of rubbish slide over the past fortnight but surely to f**k someone could’ve pulled him up on ‘the most important event the world has ever seen’ surely!!!
