The Tower of London's famous ravens have been locked up in a bid to isolate them from the deadly H5N1 strain of avian influenza that is sweeping the world.

Rest assured though that the ravens enjoy an immune boosting diet of blood-soaked biscuits, boiled eggs and cod liver oil.

Legend has it that when none of the birds are left, the kingdom is in peril - at one point during the Blitz all but one died "of fright". Now Yeoman Warder Ravenmaster Derrick Coyle has been forced to quarantine his six royal charges in specially built aviaries within the Norman fortress.

The British monarchy, QFF. Is this not called an act of war?

So hunting down foxes is stately, but taking out a few old birds is an act of war?

You live in one crazy country.

Thats a very disrespectful way of talking about our Queen. Camilla maybe - but then may i suggest a horse tranquiliser would work better on her  Wink
