Sir, There’s only one word for Angela Lawrence and Samantha Bowring — grumpypants!

Do they have this attitude at home? “Sorry kids, no birthday cake on your birthday, no Easter eggs at Easter, no presents at Christmas — to spend money celebrating things like this would be madness.”

Well, sorry, Angela and Samantha, some of us like a little happiness in our lives and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee seems a good reason to get together with our neighbours and celebrate.

You can stay in your houses and be miserable if you want to. I don’t think we want you at the Ock Street party if you’re just going to moan!
