Chip shop owner who shouted 'Lizard Liz is dead' has windows smashed by mob

4 mins read

The anti-monarchist Jacki Pickett uploaded a video of herself holding up a sign which said Lizard Liz is Dead and London Bridge has fallen while popping the cork of a champagne bottle. The late Queen Elizabeth II died on Thursday, September 8 at her Scottish residence of Balmoral. But Ms Pickett’s unwanted opinions were not appreciated by fellow residents of Muir of Ord, which is a small village in the north of Scotland. In fact her very public episode on Thursday evening attracted the attention of a mob who began booing the business owner, before pelting eggs at the storefront.     

In the now-deleted video, the shop owner can be heard saying “London Bridge has fallen. Woohoo” while dancing outside.

The incident prompted the arrival of the police who proceeded to shut the shop down over safety concerns for the owner. 

And it now appears the storefront has been vandalised overnight, with windows smashed and more eggs thrown at it. 

According to a report by the Daily Mail, a Police Scotland spokesman said the force was aware of a report of damage and officers were seeking to establish the circumstances.

One onlooker told the Mail: “Some threw eggs at her window, some squirted tomato ketchup over the windows.”I drove down myself to go and see what had happened and the streets were packed and the police were there.

“Then, Jaki, the owner of the chip shop and the lady in the video, was driving away with a police escort and her car was pelted with rocks and other objects.

“The police stayed for a while longer incase there was any further vandalism to the shop, but there wasn’t.”

The Queen began her final journey today, with her coffin leaving her Balmoral residence for a six-hour journey south to Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh.

The Queen will lie in state in the Scottish capital on Monday where the King and Queen Consort will travel to the city to join a procession from Holyroodhouse to St Giles’ Cathedral.

At 2.55pm, the coffin will be carried into the cathedral with the Crown of Scotland placed on top.

The coffin will then be flown to London on Tuesday where it will remain at Buckingham Palace before being taken to Westminster Hall to lie in state until the funeral at Westminster Abbey at 11am on September 19.

The day will be a Bank Holiday with schools closing.
