When she arrived at the castle and found that it was Snowdrop, she stood petrified with terror. Then two iron shoes were laid before her, and she was forced to put them on and to dance at Snowdrop's wedding-dancing and dancing in those heavy shoes until she fell down dead. And that was the end of her.
- Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
They shan't go to the ball. Brockley's comedy anarchist Chris Knight is back in the headlines today after he was arrested ahead of today's Royal Wedding, at which he planned to present the glowing couple with a guillotine as a wedding gift.
The radical anthropologist and two friends were taken in to custody after police turned up at his Wickham Road palace and held him on "suspicion of conspiracy to cause a public nuisance and breach of the peace."
Tedious though Knight's stunts are, every wedding features a grumpy old relative who no-one remembers inviting and BC doesn't see why William and Kate's day should be any different.
