Clockwork Incident At London Factory


Police were called to an incident at an East London factory last night, when officials from the Department for the Advancement of Sciences (DAS) were denied access to a malfunctioning Clockwork Servant.

The owner of the premises claims the device is his property, and that the scientists were trespassing on his estate.

The Clockwork, one of several that have replaced the human workforce at the factory, is thought to have developed a unique problem, which Government scientists want to investigate.

Reports say the stand-off continued into the night, and is yet to be resolved.

Tinku Ranbir In Despair At Being In London



When guests were invited to the Queen’s House for a Summer Fete in August, many didn’t realise they were going to get a firsthand insight into the personal, and what seems tragic, world of the Ranbir Family, who are current residents in the Royal House. The Ranbir's arrived in the country several years ago, at the request of the Queen. 

Chan Ranbir, a kinetic engineer at Calcutta University, and heralded as the man who put "Great back into Great Briain", developed the heart that powers the latest craze of domestic labour being championed by industry and the government.

Tinku, wife of Chan, and mother of Janav, left her personal journal in  public view. It was deemed to be part of the exhibition, and perused by members of the public.

The diary talks about being ‘wary of those around me”, and the level of politicking she is being subjected to.

Visitors to the house witnessed the rumoured 'frosty atmosphere' between Lady Frobisher-Pilbeam - the Queen's Emissary to Science, and Tinku.

The House has declined to make a statement, but reiterated its position not to respond to rumour. A copy of a page from the journal was handed to the London Gazette by a member of the public.


Queen's House Hosts Summer Fete


On August 3rd, the Queen’s House presented a Summer fete at Her Majesty’s Greenwich residence. The event was part of an exhibition to showcase many of the inventions created to win the Longitude Prize.

Guests were welcomed to the house by two current residents, Lady Frobisher Pilbeam - Queen’s Emissary to Science, and Tinku Ranbir - wife of Chan Ranbir, Head of Special Projects at the Dept for the Advancement of Sciences.

Inventors showcasing their work, and competing for the £20,000 prize were Herr Doktor, Emilly Ladybird, Citizen Gryffdawg, and Doctor Geof.

Many of the people who attended the event, claimed to witness strange phenomena around the House. Some believed it was a presence that moved around the residence, and that it didn't seem sinister. The event climaxed with a musical performance by Sunday Driver.
