Royal Wedding Street Parties

Brockley Central's still not sure what we'll actually see during the extensive coverage of the Royal Wedding.

A slow procession down some streets of London, with lots of aerial footage just like the Marathon last weekend, the ceremony itself (always boring even when you know the couple personally, we kept our own stripped down to about three minutes) and then lots of unbearable talking heads commenting in excruciating detail on every aspect of what we've just seen.

That's it right? We don't get invited to the after party? We don't see what happens in the honeymoon suite?

We expect to find the whole thing as teeth-grindingly dull as we did in 1981, only this time, we have the option of getting drunk.

We at the BDS have decided to hold a midnight feast, timing it to coincide with the consummation. Clever eh?

The event did cause some controversy. The republican members amongst us objected to associating our proud club and over two hundred years of dogging history with the nuptials of a future unelected head of state. Indeed Archibald Snook, commonly held to be the founder of modern dogging, was jailed briefly for organising a summer solstice rut in Greenwich park. He said "no man should reserve these verdant hills for his own amusement, the common man built this land and I'll be damned if I'll be compelled to walk ones hound in a squalid alley" Snook spent the rest of his days in pentonville prison where he died, aged eighty.

However Colin gave an impassioned speech where he stated that if we are to be accepted into the mainstream we must embrace the traditions of our society and not be distracted by politics.

The highlight will be a re-enactment of the ceremony, something very special is promised for when the ring is slipped on the finger.

oh, I do love a bit of history!

Speaking of street parties though, I really would love to attend one. Sadly, I really don't think the people in my street would be interested in such a thing. But what about colgate street? Could we not hold a lovely Brockley central street party there?

Could it be done without getting too mung?

I forsee olives on sticks and recycled bunting...

Olives are 'mung' are they?
It's not the seventies - you know you can get houmous in garages now?

Olives on sticks! The last word in posh!

Garlic? Bread?

Any good options for getting hog-whimperingly smashed the night before, so I can sleep through the Friday?

I'd be up for a party in Coulgate Street but I have a wedding to go to next friday

Is there any chance we could ban the words "dogging" and "mung" from this blog?

Banning words, then burning books.

It's "hear, hear" (as in "now hear this", or, "shut the f*** up and listen") not "here, here" (as in....[supply own answer if you can find one that makes any sense whatsoever]).

The whole Brockley Dogging Society weirdo bloke is the reason I don't show this blog to my friends. It's deeply, deeply unfunny and tired banter. Look at yourself and please have the sense to just stop.

Sounds a bit like the story of St Edmund...

No street party in Kitto Road until the Big Lunch in June - but there is talk of bringing a picnic to the Upper Telegraph Hill Park - although that tends to happen on a fine Friday evening anyway.

Not only are there no mungs or doggers on South East Central - there's also no anonymous posters...

Archibald Snook's spirit lives on in the anti-Greenwich Park Olympics campaign, by the way. He knew the acid grasslands were there for his own pleasures...

It was him that made them so acidic in the first place
