Queen Elizabeth national day demands soar as 73% want annual national holiday | UK | News


Researchers found 73 percent of the population want an annual national holiday to commemorate the late monarch, with just eight percent opposed to this.

Researchers found 73 per cent of the population want an annual national holiday to commemorate the late monarch, with just eight per cent opposed to this.

And if there was to be an Elizabeth Day, 69 percent of those polled favour a new bank holiday being created, 14 percent said it should replace an existing bank holiday, with six percent saying it should fall on a Saturday or Sunday.

Former Home Secretary Priti Patel has endorsed the idea of a day to celebrate the Queen, saying: “An annual national holiday would be a fitting tribute to the lifetime of public service of our late, great Queen Elizabeth II.”

“She was a remarkable monarch whose commitment to duty and to serving our country and the Commonwealth was inspirational.”

“The way the country and world has mourned her passing has shown how much we admired and respected her.”

“I am not surprised that there is so much support for an annual day to commemorate and celebrate her life and I back this happening.”

Dragon’s Den star Deborah Meaden has backed calls for a “thank holiday” on which people can show appreciation for those who enrich their communities.

She said: “The Queen brought our country together like nothing else. There can be no better legacy than a day named in Her Majesty’s honour continuing to connect people for years to come.:

“That’s why businesses, politician and the public are united in supporting it. It’s time to make it happen.”

Brendan Cox, the husband of murdered Labour MP Jo Cox who founded the Together Coalition, has been at the forefront of the campaign for a new bank holiday to mark the Queen’s legacy.

He said: “The message from this poll couldn’t be clearer. The British public are united in their desire to honour Her Majesty and to continue her legacy of bringing people together.”

“Politicians often talk about the need to bring our country together. This is a policy that would do just that and now is the time to make it happen.”

Tim Loughton, a former children’s minister, said a national day would be, “the least we can do to commemorate her extraordinary example of unparalleled service and Britishness in this way”.

Calls for a permanent statue of the Queen to be erected on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square are also building momentum.

Former security minister Sir John Hayes, who leads the “common sense” group of MPs, has written to Prime Minister Liz Truss appealing for her support.

He wrote: “Surely there is no more fitting place to permanently celebrate the legacy of Queen Elizabeth II than Trafalgar Square, on the empty fourth plinth, at the heart of the capital.”

“The Government’s sponsorship and support of a national appeal would give all those who support this project the opportunity to contribute.”

The polling by Redfield and Wilton Strategies showed 60 percent of people think King Charles III will be a good king – with only 16 percent disagreeing with this.

It also revealed the strength of public backing for the new heir to the throne Prince William and his wife Kate.

Seven out of 10 people have a favourable view of the Prince of Wales (72 percent) and the Princess of Wales (71 percent).

This puts them ahead of King Charles (55 percent), Prince Harry (51 percent) and Camilla, the Queen Consort (40 percent).

There was also support for renaming Heathrow in honour of the Queen. This was backed by nearly half of people quizzed (47 percent), with only 30 percent opposed.

A separate poll by Techne found 79 percent back a bank holiday in the Queen’s honour.

Welsh Conservative MP James Davies, who represents the Vale of Clwyd, said the national day would help bring the country together.

He said: “An annual ‘Elizabeth Day’ – whether a new or repurposed bank holiday – would not only celebrate a remarkable lady but help bring the people of the United Kingdom together, in the same way that the Jubilee celebrations and recent national mourning period have done.

“Her late Majesty was loved by the people and she loved this country back. She represented much that we understand modern Britain to be and it would be a fitting tribute to her to set aside a day to remind ourselves that more unites us than divides us.”

Thomas Mace-Archer-Mills of the British Monarchists Society was encouraged by the polling, saying: “The fact that there is overwhelming support to celebrate Her Late Majesty with a national day of celebration, continues to prove that the heart of this nation is very much one that is monarchist to the core.”

He backed the idea of a day to celebrate “Elizabeth the Great” and recommended it takes place on an existing bank holiday.

“Her Late Majesty would not want such a fuss of a new bank holiday being created, nor would she want any such celebration to be any form of a burden on the nation.”

“This is why it would be best to already use what we have in regard to existing bank holidays and assign one in particular to celebrate the modest woman Elizabeth II was,” he said.

Conservative Meriden MP Saqib Bhatti also backed Elizabeth Day, saying: “She taught us what it really means to keep calm and carry on. Her Majesty dedicated her life to public service and to have a day that recognises that would be fitting.”

Nickie Aiken, the Conservative MP for the Cities of London and Westminster, supported the calls for a statue of the Queen in Trafalgar Square.

She said: “I think a statue in central London would be a fitting tribute to our late Queen. Obviously the fourth plinth would be a perfect place but it would have to be with the agreement of the King and the Royal Family.”

A Government spokeswoman said: “Earlier this month we announced the state funeral would be a bank holiday to help give as many people as possible the opportunity to mark Her Majesty’s passing and commemorate her reign.”

“The state funeral was a unique national moment and there are currently no plans for an annual holiday.”

Bargain hunter finds 700-year-old medieval manuscript at estate sale



PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A bargain hunter who went to an estate sale in Maine to find a KitchenAid mixer, a bookshelf or vintage clothing walked away with a 700-year-old treasure.

Instead of a kitchen appliance, Will Sideri stumbled upon a framed document hanging on a wall. It had elaborate script in Latin, along with musical notes and gold flourishes. A sticker said 1285 AD. Based on what he’d seen in a manuscripts class at Colby College, the document looked downright medieval.

And it was a bargain at $75.

Academics confirmed the parchment was from The Beauvais Missal, used in the Beauvais Cathedral in France, and dated to the late 13th century. It was used about 700 years ago in Roman Catholic worship, they said.

An expert on manuscripts said the document, first reported by the Maine Monitor, could be worth as much as $10,000.

After spying the unusual manuscript, Sideri contacted his former Colby College professor, who was familiar with it because there’s another page in the college collection. The professor reached out to another academic who’d researched the document. They quickly confirmed the authenticity.

The parchment was part of a prayer book and priests’ liturgy, said Lisa Fagin Davis, executive director of the Medieval Academy of America and a professor of manuscript studies at Simmons University in Boston.

The full missal was once owned by William Randolph Hearst, the newspaper publisher, before being sold in the 1940s and, much to the consternation of today’s academics, was divvied up into individual pages, she said.

The practice was common in the early 20th century. “Thousands of unique manuscripts were destroyed and scattered this way,” Davis said.

Davis has painstakingly researched The Beauvais Missal, and has tracked down more than 100 individual pages across the country. All told, the missal numbered 309 pages in its original form.

The page purchased by Sideri is of particular interest to scholars. It’s a treasure both because of its age and condition, which is far better than the other page in the Colby collection, said Megan Cook, Sideri’s former professor, who teaches medieval literature at Colby.

The parchment is worth upward of $10,000, according to Davis. But Sideri said he has no intention of selling it. He said he likes the history and beauty of the parchment — and the story of how he stumbled upon it.

“This is something, at the end of the day, that I know is cool,” he said. “I didn’t buy this expecting to sell it.”

Chinese company creates bootleg Toyota Tundra


It puts the “toy” in Toyota.

A Chinese company is selling a mini pickup truck that’s the spitting image of a Toyota Tundra.

It’s listed as both the SVH Tundar and SVH Tundaa in Facebook posts by the Sino Vehicle Hub that sells it, but its tailgate is embossed with the name Tundra, just like the authentic Toyota is.

Technically a four-door crew cab, the tiny truck also shares its six-sided grille and headlight shape with Toyota’s full-size pickup.

Behind it is a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that’s supplied by Isuzu, in which Toyota happens to be a minority shareholder.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission, but it’s only enough to get it up to a top speed of 62 mph.

The list price is just $6,000, according to Autoevolution, and that includes air conditioning.

Toyota and SVH have not responded to requests for comment on the vehicle’s similarity to the Tundra.

This is far from the first time a Chinese automaker has sold a model that appears to be inspired by one from a foreign brand. A range of models, from the Ford F-150 to the Lamborghini Urus, have been copied over the years.

When John Wall needed a friend most, Bradley Beal was there


Bradley Beal and John Wall haven’t been teammates on the Washington Wizards for nearly two years, but they have a bond that goes deeper than basketball.

In a moving essay published Thursday in the Players’ Tribune, Wall detailed his struggle with depression over the past few years. His mother, Frances Ann Pulley, died of breast cancer 10 months after a 2019 Achilles injury took Wall off the basketball court and marked the beginning of the end of his career with the Wizards. He was traded in December 2020.

Wall and Beal’s relationship was complicated during their eight years as backcourt-mates. The pair was the subject of frequent speculation as they vacillated between being goofy, close friends and moody locker room adversaries.

We’re seeing John Wall at his strongest. He still has some heavy lifting.

But their bond was strong. It reached another level after Wall received a call during a Wizards’ road trip to play the Charlotte Hornets that his mother had been placed on a ventilator. Wall returned to his room at the Ritz Carlton and had a breakdown, smashing “the TV, the mirror, everything,” he said.

Beal came to sit with him.

“I never wish that on anybody. I lost my grandmother last November,” Beal said Friday at Wizards media day when asked if he had read Wall’s piece. “So kind of seeing what he went through and then not even like a year and a half [later], he went through it again. Lost his mom, lost his grandma, not having basketball. That’s a lot for somebody to deal with who had the world in his hand. He revolved his world around his mother, that’s the reason why he played the game as hard as he did, and that’s taken from you.”

Beal, 29, reiterated Friday what anyone who has helped a loved one through grief knows. Sometimes the best way to comfort someone is by simply showing up.

“I didn’t say anything. There was nothing to say,” Beal said. “Just being there, being there to hold him, being there to comfort him, whatever he needed — that’s what I was there for.”

The guard said he didn’t fully comprehend Wall’s feelings until his maternal grandmother, Ora Mae Stokes, died last year. Beal sobbed at shoot-around the day he learned the news but played against Cleveland before taking a brief leave from the Wizards to grieve with his family.

“To have that experience myself a year and a half, almost two years later, it was like, I understand what that meant,” Beal said. “Because I had my brothers, I had my family there, my support system, too. It’s important, man, we need each other. It’s important you have your support system, your family, your friends — everybody needs somebody in this life. I’m blessed that I can call John my brother and I continue to do so.”

Beal joined the Wizards for the start of training camp Saturday “100 percent” healthy after missing the second half of the 2021-22 season with a left wrist injury.
