Thank You Your Majesty For 60 Years of Dedicated Service To Our Country

The above logo was chosen as the winner of a competition between schoolchildren of our country.

Many sincere congratulations and much love to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on achieving her Diamond Jubilee on The Throne of this great and wonderful country.

I was only 8 years of age when she acceded to the Throne and I still treasure to this very day the silver Coronation spoon presented to me in commemoration of that great event.

The Queen has seen numerous presidents and prime ministers come and go but throughout her long and glorious reign she has never put a foot wrong;  She has represented this country and its cherished principles and values to the highest possible level.

 I am so proud to have a constitutional monarch of such outstanding stature as head of our country and our Royal Family. All of us Loyalists owe you a great debt of gratitude Ma'am.

May God bless you Ma'am and long may you reign over us.  Enjoy your Diamond Jubilee weekend and I pray that the weather will be as gracious to us all, as you are to us. Three cheers for Her Majesty the Queen !!!!

I will certainly be toasting the Second Elizabethan Age and I hope that the sun shines on the righteous.

Shaun's Very Brave Final Goodbye

Dying teen's goodbye video message touches the world after it goes viral

A terminally ill teenager's moving goodbye video to his family and friends has touched the world after it accidentally went viral.

Shaun Wilson-Miller, 17, recorded his message in his bedroom and intended to share it with his Facebook friends.

But now more than 1.65 million people have seen his heartbreaking home movie after a technical problem meant he had to upload it to YouTube.

Shaun, from Melbourne, Australia, suffers from a chronic heart condition that means his body has rejected two transplants.

Doctors said he cannot undergo a third operation - and it is believed Shaun has just months to live.

Shaun recorded the message in his bedroom late at night soon after hearing the devastating diagnosis.

He urged his loved ones to live their lives to the fullest and look after his dad when he is gone.

In the clip, a visibly emotional Shaun says: "I won't be here as long as I thought, but I wanted to say that this has been an awesome ride and I have no regrets.

"Live life to the fullest because you never know what's going to happen."

Since the emotional footage emerged, Shaun has appeared on a number of TV shows, including a guest role on Neighbours. He has met his favourite Aussie rules footballer Jobe Watson, is writing his memoirs and has inspired a rap song.

He has even found love with a fellow heart patient.

Shaun told a newspaper: "Yes, it's love. We've been going out for two and a half weeks, but we've been friends for seven years.

"The hardest thing for me is leaving her, knowing that I won't get to marry her. To have kids together. To grow old together. That is what makes me sad."

His dad Cameron Miller said they have had to discuss his son's funeral arrangements because his new-found fame means the death will affect more than just their nearest and dearest.

"I just pray that it's quick. I don't want him to suffer," he said.

"No parent should have to bury their child. But he's loving life and he wants us to do the same. He doesn't want us to cry for him."

Driving ban to be a punishment in new legislation to tackle drug-driving

Drug-driving will be become a specific offence, punishable by up to six months in prison and a £5,000 fine under tough new measures being proposed by the Government.

Motorists under the influence of drugs can only currently be prosecuted for being behind the wheel if police can prove their driving has been impaired.

Under the measures, proposed as part of a wider Crime, Communications and Court Bill in the Coalition's new legislative programme, offenders would also face an automatic driving ban of at least 12 months

Prime Minister David Cameron said it "simply can't be right" that the laws are not aleady there to punish drug drivers properly.

"We want to do for drug driving what drink-driving laws have done for driving under the influence of alcohol. That's why we're doing what we can to get drugalysers rolled out more quickly.

"And this week we'll publish a new drug-driving offence so that driving under the influence of drugs itself is a crime, just like it is for drink driving."

Police are set to be issued with handheld drug detection devices, which will take a saliva sample, as well as a breathalyser to test erratic drivers.

The machines are expected to receive approval from the Home Office by the end of the year.

The Prime Minister paid tribute to the family of Lillian Groves, who have campaigned for a change to the law since the 14-year-old was killed after being knocked down by a cannabis user. He served just four months in jail.

"Lillian Groves's family should be congratulated for their brave campaign," he said.

"I hope now that something good can come out of their tragic loss."

The proposals follow an independent review of drink and drug driving laws in 2010. An expert panel will help to decide which drugs are covered by the offence.

Naked Biker Booked For No Helmet

Missing bike helmet was the only offence for naked biker in eastern Europe!

A Romanian policeman pulled over a woman who was riding pillion naked on a motorcycle - and booked her for failing to wear a helmet.

The woman was not wearing a stitch but the traffic officer said it was the only offence that he had authorisation to book her for.

Motorists got out their smartphones to take photographs of the eye-catching biker who was pulled over in Constanta.

And, after accepting her punishment, she donned a helmet before continuing her journey - still naked.

"The officer was a traffic cop and the only traffic offence she'd committed was in not wearing a helmet," one witness told Romanian media.

"So he gave her a warning and a ticket and told her and her companion to ride on," they added.
