    Default Queen refuses Tourism Ireland request to turn palace green - thank God!

    Perhaps the most cringe-worthy embarrassing news so far this year is that Tourism Ireland has asked HM to allow Buckingham Place to be lit up in green for St.Patrick's Day. Any more of this grossness and she will be regretting ever coming to Ireland. Some ignorant jobs-worth at Tourism Ireland probably thought that this demeaning -demeaning to Ireland and to her Majesty- display of ignorance, uncouthness and bad manners is what being "Oirish" today is all about.

    Queen Elizabeth refuses to turn Buckingham Palace green for St. Patrick

    No doubt the jobs-worth concerned will be parading on the Day with a leprechaun hat and the obligatory pint of Guinness in his paw.- he is "Oirish" after all.

    It would be interesting to find out how he came by his job at Tourism Ireland. It cannot be down to intelligence so there must have been some "pull" somehow.

    I would love to see a camera crew, go up to film Willie Frazer's reaction.

    I think they have added the leaning tower of Pisa this year to the vast list.

    Not terribly unhappy about this 'story'. FG forecasted an increase in UK visitors as a result of the queen's visit. Actually, the visitor numbers declined. Shocker.

    Not sure if they allow cameras in prison.
