The Queen


Recommended Posts

Good riddance.

She's perfectly entitled to her lunatic beliefs but as a business owner this proves she's not all there......................well she's certainly not in Muir of Ord anymore.  :1eye

The owner of a Highland fish and chip shop who celebrated the death of Queen Elizabeth with champagne has handed over the running of the business following a backlash from locals.

Jacki Pickett, the owner of Jaki Fish and Chip Shop in the village of Muir of Ord, provoked disgust in her rural community when she shared a video of herself holding a sign saying “Lizard Liz Dead” shortly after the monarch’s passing.

She sprayed a champagne bottle and held up a sign which also read “London Bridge has Fallen” outside her takeaway.

The fish and chip shop was forced to close that evening after being surrounded by a crowd of angry local residents.

It had been closed since Sept 10, but reopened on Friday night with a new operator attempting to distance herself from Ms Pickett.

A sign outside the shop said: “As of Friday 21st October, Jaki’s Chip Shop will be under new management. Please welcome Kerry who has now taken over. Thank you for your 10 years’ custom and I wish Kerry all the best.”

‘Jaki will not be part of the business’

The takeaway is still called Jaki’s and the old sign still hangs above the door. It is understood a new name and sign for the business will go up in the near future.

Kerry Paterson, the new owner, said online she and her family had taken over the lease of the business from Ms Pickett. She pleaded for the support of the community, despite Ms Pickett still owning the premises.
