Public encouraged to attend VJ Day events despite report of Isis plot | UK news | The Guardian.

you know something? i have never heard of this day , Victory over Japan (VJ) day until now. is it a recent thing? or have it been celebrated every year all these years and i never know about it because it came and went without any fanfare, until now with this threat to assasinate the queen.

it is on today, saturday 15th. i must remember not to go anywhere near whitehall, (i was going to chinatown to buy black soya sauce today) not that i am against it or fear the danger, but that i cannot stand crowds like that and disruption to the buses.

interesting that there is VE day , Victory in Europe, which is not called VG day, Victory over Germany. rather unfair on the japanese to single them out every year and keep reminding people of it.  it is after all long ago. this year is the 70th anniversary.
