Helicopters buzzing around Brexit

07 June, 2019

Chinook helicopter

• I HAVE this morning (Wednesday) had four helicopters flying over my house for more than half an hour from around 9.30am.

Watching them, three Chinooks and another, following each other, I noticed them fly low and loudly along Gillespie Road, down St Thomas Road, across Finsbury Park to Clissold Park, where they turned and did it all again and again and again.

President Trump was in Portsmouth where D-Day commemorations had already started. In lieu of any better explanation I assume they had been ordered to buzz Jeremy Corbyn’s home or were there as a warning to the remain voters of Islington about the might of the US.
