Newsletter – 9 May 2019
May 9, 2019 Newsletter
Well, firstly, of course, we must add our voices to the chorus of congratulations to Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex on the birth of their first son. Fabulous news!
Secondly, our sincerest commiserations to the family of brave Guardsman Mathew Talbot who was killed by an elephant while on counter poaching operations in Malawi. A sad loss of a dedicated and passionate serviceman.
We’ve also seen the appointment of our first ever female Defence Secretary as Penny Mordaunt takes on the role from Gavin Williamson, following his dismissal for allegedly leaking a story about the espionage threat from Chinese tech company Huawei. As he continues to profess his innocence, there’s a story that could run and run – we’d love to know what you think, let us know over on our Facebook page, as ever!
Drop us a line on [email protected] if there's anything you'd like us to add to this newsletter.

A distinguished young woman on a flight from Switzerland asked the Priest beside her, "Father, may I ask a favor?" "Of course. What may I do for you?"
"Well, I bought an expensive woman's electronic hair dryer for my mother's birthday. The dryer is unopened and well over the Customs limits; and I'm afraid they'll confiscate it. Is there any way you could carry it through Customs for me? Under your robes perhaps?"
"I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you: I will not lie."
"With your honest face, Father, no one will question you."
When they reached the Customs area, she let the priest go ahead of her.
The official asked: "Father, do you have anything to declare?"
"From the top of my head down to my waist, I have nothing to declare."
The official thought this answer strange, so asked, "And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?"
"I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used on a woman, but which is, to date, unused."
Roaring with laughter, the official said, "Go ahead, Father."
