"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Have A Pasty

This is the rest/best of Bild.
Stick-on pasties to preserve your modesty in airports.

Tie a yellow ribbon round the old ...

German Defence Minister aborts visit -  apparently it's a bit dangerous in Afghanistan

Back to the UK, Telegraph-style:
St Helena's gets an airstrip
What's sauce for the goose - I'm moving to Yorkshire
Scottish taxidermists ahoy!  £500 bottle of beer sold inside bodies of dead animals
Deluded nutjob being placed on UK probation
Warner: on the button re Moat & the police
Germans 'harmonise' with Brits and say 'we're a drain on our NHS too'
I'd like to buy some but first I need an English garden

In the grand tradition of keeping a stiff upper lip and decrying the dangers, I've left the worst till last:

Britain can't defend itself from every threat

Well, hello Argentina, welcome aboard illegal immigrants, hello Spain (how much is Gibraltar worth?), come on Al-Qaeda, if you think you're hard enough.  And they will.  The government must sort this out now.  Already we're seeing US companies trying buy-outs of UK companies because of the pound/dollar rate - our country is being sold and globalised beneath us.

Here's one I almost forgot; it's from the Daily Mail:  £12m to prove that an apple a day keeps the doctor away 

Can't we retain just a little, tiny, itsy-bitsy bit of England, please Sirs?

Try this from the Spectator.
