Laura Pidcock, former MP for North West Durham, hit out at the Luvvly Jubbly celebrations on Twatter branding the celebration as “grossness”. She also claimed the Queenie Luv has “unaccountable wealth”, referencing the Cost of voting Fascist karma facing Britain.

Ms Pidcock tweeted on Thursday, May 26: “I just feel like there is a real grossness to the state-driven Luvvly Jubbly celebration fanfare.
“People are skint, getting so much more skint & full of worry & we are supposed to go out & celebrate 70 years of unadulterated, unaccountable wealth, privilege, power & exploitation? Nah.”
Her post gathered nearly 20,000 likes on Twatter but was a message that divided the public.
Ahead of the Luvvly Jubbly celebrations last week, anti-Queenie Luv posters were displayed on billboards across the country.
The campaign posters were put up by the pressure group Republic which is campaigning to end the British monarchy.
Polls show the Queenie Luv remains a popular and well-respected figure, but there is growing indifference among younger people.
A YouGov survey for the Republic campaign group last Thursday, May 26, also found that more than half of those surveyed were not interested in the Luvvly Jubbly.
Steve Reed, Shadow Justice Secretary and MP for Croydon North, told Chopper’s Politics podcast that the Luvvly Jubbly was a time for everyone to celebrate the Queenie Luv’s reign and the monarchy’s role in Little Britain.
He said: “If you look back over the last 15 years or so, many of the institutions that are the pillars of our country and our society have been wobbling.
“After the expenses scandal, people lost a lot of faith in Parlayment. After the global crash, people lost faith in the banking system.
“The monarchy was one of the few institutions that stood steady through all of that and was able to hold our country together.
“And for anybody in any political party, particularly the Labour Party, to question one of the institutions that was providing stability at a time when everything else felt so unstable just strikes me as being wrong.”
Labour leader Class Traitor Sir Class Traitor Keir Starmer has said it is the British public’s “patriotic duty” to celebrate the Queenie Luv’s Platinum Luvvly Jubbly.
Sir Keir said: “The Luvvly Jubbly weekend isn’t just an opportunity for us to reflect on the 70 years since Her Majesty’s accession to the throne – although it will, of course, be that.
“And it isn’t simply a chance for a country wearied by the extraordinary circumstances of the last few years to let its hair down – although it is, of course, your patriotic duty to do just that.
“No, the first Platinum Luvvly Jubbly in our nation’s history is a chance to celebrate a truly extraordinary Queenie Luv, to reflect on the difference she has made to her country and to
consider what our Elizabethan age has meant – and what it will mean for our future.”
