STUFF THE JUBILEE IN SALFORD – Part 3
As the Summer of Bread and Circuses gets under way, The Black Lion pub on Chapel Street is going all out ironic for the Jubilee with a free People's Street Party out front of the pub plus loads going on inside. Details are still being finalised but there will be a BBQ, live music, DJs and the snug will be turned into Conspiracy Corner serving lizard cakes, a reference to David Icke and his theories we believe.
Every hour the National Anthem will be played, followed by the Sex Pistols' God Save The Queen… `She ain't no human being/There is no future/In England's dreaming etc…'
"The ConDem government might have killed the high street as shoppers and consumers party over a four day weekend, but they have finally given the humble publican something to get excited about" says the Black Lion's Mark Ashmore "As highways agencies and councils create a street party grey area, we at the Black Lion are looking forward to cashing in on the Queen - you can't cash in on the Euro that's for sure!"
A day at the Black Lion getting hammered and listening to Johnny Rotten et al singing No Future sounds ace – but what to wear? The obligatory anti-Jubilee badge this year is the new Stuff The Jubilee: No Cuts badge produced by the Coalition of Resistance (£1 – click here)… it's an update on the original Stuff The Jubilee badge from back in the day.
And there's a lovely range of t-shirts produced by Red Molotov featuring an update on the famous Jamie Reid God Save The Queen Sex Pistols image – this time showing the Queen as a skull with the slogans Off With Her Head and Vive La Republique (from £14.99 click here). Certainly makes a change from the union jack bowler hat…
