Where will Prince Philip be buried, will he have a state funeral and where are other royals buried? The Duke of Edinburgh may have a low-key ceremony.
Laurence Fox to run for London Mayor to fight ‘extreme political correctness’
Laurence Fox has announced he is standing for London Mayor so he can fight against extreme political correctness.
The controversial actor said he is entering the race for City Hall so he can offer a voice to those who are being dominated into silence.
It comes after his anti-Woke Reclaim Party was approved by the Electoral Commission last month.
Mr Fox said he will fight on a platform for lifting lockdown as soon as he is elected in May rather than waiting until June, when all restrictions are due to be removed.
He also claimed he wanted to ‘speak up for those who are being dominated into silence’ as he launched an attack on what he described as ‘extreme political correctness’.
Mr Fox told The Daily Telegraph: ‘I am standing for London mayor. With almost all older and vulnerable people having got their jab, I want the lockdown lifted straight away. The Government has said vaccines are working, hospitalisations and deaths are tumbling, but we are still being told we wont be able to resume normal life until mid-summer at the earliest.
‘Both the main parties are competing in this dreary race to be the last to set the country free. Both Tory and Labour have got this badly wrong. I want London and indeed the rest of the country to be allowed to get back to work and play immediately not by late June.’
Mr Fox went on to attack the BBC, Black Lives Matter and Labour Mayor Sadiq Khan ‘and his nation hating cronies’.
He claimed that UK culture had reached a ‘crisis point’ where ‘even mild patriotism is branded as racism’.
The actor-turned-activist said: ‘Why are none of our politicians standing to defend us? I am livid at the disrespect being shown to the sacrifices made by previous generations to protect our values, tolerance and freedom. This extreme political correctness must be resisted.’
The Daily Telegraph claimed that Mr Fox’s campaign for election in May would be funded by a donation from former Tory donor Jeremy Hosking. The mayoral campaign spending limit is set at £420,000.
