We’re normally a bit wary of anyone who changes their name just for a weekend, then changes it back – as they might be serial murderers, booze-addled Hollywood starlets, or drug traffickers. But we’ve got to give a big ‘hip hip hooray’ to the most central fish and chip shop in London, Golden Union, for patriotic services to the 60th Jubilee celebrations. For one (Diamond Jubilee) weekend only (2-6 June), it is renaming itself Diamond Union. We’re told there will be ’bunting, balloons and Pimm’s a-plenty’ in the chip shop over the weekend. Her Majesty would surely approve.
