Her Majesty the Queen today open Britain’s first specially built retirement home for Doggers. The facility in Battersea will allow Doggers over 65 to see out their days in dignity and comfort. The rooms have a variety of special features - such as beds shaped like the rear seat of a Vauxhall Vectra – that will provide familiar surroundings to the former Doggers.
In her speech, the Queen spoke movingly: “One knows that the day will come when every Dogger will have to hang up their ankle bracelet, but thanks to this superb facility, the trauma of knowing One will never be sprawled across a car bonnet in an NCP in Newcastle is eased. “
Residents later presented the Queen with a steamed up car window.
