Staunch republican forced to take two extra days off work
Gary Rogers, of Swindon has been labelled a hypocrite, a sell-out and a closet-royalist by friends and family alike, after admitting he's secretly looking forward to the 4 day Jubilee weekend.
Rogers, 55, a site foreman, has spent the best part of 40 years telling anyone who'd listen, and very often those who wouldn't, that the Royals are “just a bunch of parasites” and "we'd be better off without them, especially that Queen".
He would then launch into a well-rehearsed rant about how her kids, grandkids and the whole entourage were just “a bunch of nonces and skivers, sponging off the State”, and how we should “put them all up against a wall.”
He told our reporter, “I really wanted to go into work today but they wouldn't let me. The place is all closed up 'til Monday. Bloody Royals!”
