I had a flash of panic when it said "if you're planning on showering mom with flowers or giving her a card this Sunday" until i realised that i haven't bought my mother a card since 1992 it's actually Sunday the 18th in the UK.
Strange that they'd presumably pick up a US story and not bother changing anything that made it completely obvious they were just printing pre-packaged press releases.

Horror in 'Nappy Valley': Father comes home to find baby son and daughter 'smothered to death by wife' - just 10 days after they moved into £1.2m dream home
Neighbours saw the dark-haired mother being put into a police car by an officer who had an arm around her at around 10.30pm last night.

I read this as 'if you're planning on showering with mom'

something inappropriate about the font which labels the arrow of this suicide flight-path:

Doesn't it go totally against some sort of code of conduct to show pictures of suicide spots in such articles?

*ii) When reporting suicide, care should be taken to avoid excessive detail about the method used.

Graphic images illustrating suicide methods were often upsetting to relatives and friends. Under the Code, such images would normally have to pass the ‘excessive detail’ test.

coincidence? i think not.
Her husband Jeff discovered the tiny bodies at the couple’s £1.2 million semi-detached home in an affluent part of Wandsworth, south west London.
Neighbours heard investment banker Mr Boots, 34, cry, ‘Oh my God, oh my God’ as he desperately tried to save his two babies.

For some reason that reminds me vividly of the book Boo by Peter de Polnay, possibly even an incident within it, and I can't for the life of me remember why. It's certainly a while since I've thought of it. Is there a Mr Boots in there? Very possibly. There's certainly a tragic occurrence in a... West London I think flat. The tone as well, the tone.
Still fat chance of checking up, since this is about the only information I can get on the book, and PdP is not a writer who has yet ruffled WIkipedia's apodictic curve to infinite reference.

Here he is in a badly-scanned article from the Catholic Herald talking about that quickly forgotten post-war suggestion of a union between France and England:

i thought that bit in that meades interview was quite correct
I feel like the TV, the radio and the papers are always telling me how much ‘we' hate the French, yet I never really see it myself.
JM: I don't see it either.
no confederacy but quite a history of quixotic military-industrial comity in the postwar (suez, concorde, the channel tunnel etc)
and the recent mutterings about unifying the two ruinously expensive nuclear deterrents

Yes, I thought of that bit in the interview as well. And yes, I'd agree it's broadly correct. There's that great southern England folk song - The Grand Conversation on Napoleon - which is all about how the common man (or whatever) wanted Napoleon to invade England and liberate them from their servitude. Can't find a youtube! for shame!

oh ffs. that link doesn't work. good excuse to troll the daily mail thread maybe:
THE GRAND CONVERSATION OF NAPOLEON
Ye war-beaten tribes,Who were friends of brave BonaparteWho come to view the rocks and cliffsOn St. Helen's shore;The wind it blew a hurricaneAnd the lightning on our decks did flashThe gulls they were screamingAnd the billows loud did roar."Those proud waves," the stranger saidAs he viewed that lone and dreary spotWhere once Napoleon BonaparteHis painful eyes did close;"While in the grave his bones may rotHis name will never be forgotThe grand conversation of Napoleon arose.
A dreadful army he did rise,To conquer Moscow by surprise;He led his men across the Alps,Oppressed by frost and snowBut being near the Russian line,He then began to open his eyes,For Moscow was a-burning,And his men went to and fro.With dauntless eyes he viewed the flames,Then in wildest accents he exclaimed:"Retreat:.yet gallant heroes,While time so gently!: flows!"There were thousands died in that retreat,And many did their horses eat.The grand conversation of Napoleon arose.
Next at Waterloo those F;renchmen foughtCommanded by brave Bonaparte,Assisted by7 F'ield Marshal NeyWho never was bribed by goldThen Blucher led those Prussians in,It broke Napoleon's heart within:"Where is my thirtv thousand men!Alas! for I am old!He made one gallant charge across,Saying, "Alas, brave boys. I fear t'is lost'"The field is in confusion With blood and dying woes; TheBunch of roses did advance, Those English entered into France.The Grand conversation of Napoleon arose.
And now Bonarparte is doomed to beA prisoner across the sea, On St. Helena`s isle.That lone and dreary spot;It's there that he is doomed to he,Which soon will end his misery.His true son followed after himThat was another plot.It's long enough they have been dead,The blast of war around is spread;And may our sapling sprout again,To face our daring foes,For if fortune smiles without delay,The whole world soon will him obey.The grand conversation of Napoleon arose.
