Petite but perfectly formed, she is blushing at the antics of some anti-whaling types who object to an annual bloodfest on the Faroes. The Mail proclaims she first appeared in 1913 and is now 94, a survivor of many cowardly attacks down the years. Still a Danish territory, the Faroes tried to succeed (per the Mail) in 1940 but settled for more home-rule. It might make more sense for the protesters to do their thing on the islands but they would get short shrift, if not a thick ear.

Now showing in a Hertfordshire garden. Not a crime shed. Maybe he’d just found his dog, always worth celebrating.

The Grauniad claims an exclusive – the story that the Danish gubmint plans to oppose Britain’s bid to reclaim control of its coastal waters to the exclusion of ‘traditional’ fishing partners. Apparently the Danes will present a legal case based on custom and practice dating back to the 1400s which will permit DK to continue net 40% of their catch in British waters – and the whole EU fleet to source a third of its fish there too.

Shades of Kirk Kent and the Viking invasion in 1983? Yes, which suggests the true precedent is the status quo prior to that, whereby Britain was in control! Since then the EU ‘accord’ has decimated the British fleet and allowed all and sundry to fish around our islands.

As I’ve mentioned before, the Danish royals are on welfare, but undeterred by such inappropriate considerations, they treated their Belgian peers to the best of everything. Sans the Prince  Consort, who has taken his bat home to France after being denied kingship (again). A good time was had by all, especially the Crown Prince who does little else but have a good time, unlike his Tasmanian wife, the fashion queen of Scandinavia.

If you’d like to witness some conspicuous consumption, the Mail has it all:

Let the wind blow high
Let the wind blow low
Through the streets
In my kilt, I’ll go
All the lassies say hello
Donald, where’s your troosers
