The video of this Scottish woman was not to the liking of the villagers.
Since Queen Elizabeth II’s death on Thursday 8 September, opinions have been divided over the tribute to be paid to the one who reigned over the United Kingdom for nearly a century. In France, several mayors have refused to lower the flags of their commune. Across the Channel, we even get to celebrate the death of Elizabeth II. Not without consequences.
Death of Elizabeth II: “I respect the pain of our English friends but …”, these French mayors who refuse to lower their flags
In fact, the owner of a fish and chips in Muir of Ord, in the Scottish Highlands, saw her sign window being looted after airing a video in which she cheered the queen’s death. In these images, published on Thursday evening and then deleted but which continue to circulate on social media, we can see the owner Jacki Pickett in front of her restaurant, a bottle of champagne in hand and visibly in a good mood. He is holding a sign where it says: “Lizard Liz is dead. London Bridge has fallen.” This last sentence alludes to the London Bridge operation for the Queen’s funeral plan.
Jaki Muir of Ord’s fish and chip shop. What a fucking embarrassment. A hope that your business will fail after that, fat cow.
I know I said to ignore this sort of thing but it cannot be ignored, a bargain by the way \ ud83d \ ude33 pic.twitter.com/ZyIrEehp3k

Revoked by the National Fish and Chips Federation
But this intervention was not to the liking of the residents of Muir of Ord. In an image circulating on Twitter, we can see that the facade of the Jaki Fish and Chip Shop has been damaged. Close News week, the Scottish police confirmed that they had reported vandalism in the night between Friday and Saturday 10 September. The same Friday night, the owner of the restaurant had to be escorted by the police out of her sign.
In life, we are surrounded by stupid people, Jaki Pickett, who runs Jaki’s fish and chip shop #MuirofOrd is one of these individuals. However, I think her Majesty the Queen would be horrified by this vandalism and I would like her to stop immediately. pic.twitter.com/S6vCvA2PMC

The case even reached the ears of the very serious National Fish and Chips Federation which immediately announced the revocation of the owner’s membership.
