  • BBC: Using its TARDIS to materialize inside the security perimeter

  • Agence-France Presse: Sending a correspondent to Calais with a telescope to confirm that the boorish English and their cloud-condemned island are still there
  • Cat Fancy: Four-part series on the growing irrelevance of the British royalty and its long-term effect on the working class
