Just saw some tv adverts, literally every fucking advert had to fit some bullshit about the jubilee in it. EVERY SINGLE ONE
example a camera advert saying that we need a camera to capture all these jubilee memories. oh dear :SJune 2, 2012 at 8:31 am #1254083

In fairness, she’s getting a bit old to party, and might not live to see another, so they’re probably making this one a goodun! Gets me an extra day off work anyway…June 3, 2012 at 6:13 pm #1254101Gylfi GudbjornssonParticipant
I’m more interested in the economic climate of Burkina Faso. Or watching paint dry….June 4, 2012 at 5:32 pm #1254108Pat McDonaldParticipant
Hmmm… while I do not like politicians I do have a certain sympathy for the Queen and the Royal Family. Both her and Phil “The Greek” Battenberg do have VERY impressive war service records which of course they never boast about (being English).
Also, I got something they don’t have. It’s called freedom of action.
I wouldn’t want her job. Or her husbands. OK, in theory they got plenty of money and plenty of land and plenty of things to do – but they got an awful lot of people really looking up to them.
So, people want to party… it’s not like Jubilees (old Jewish “Free the Slaves” day) are really bad. Just a bit awkward. Bit square. Well, square people are allowed to party to.June 4, 2012 at 6:13 pm #1254079
If we were allowed dance music events like NL is (even after idiots tried to bomb them!) for the royal days I might be a bit less indifferent.
That said, there wasn’t a single street party on my bit of the housing estate I live on (supposedly the nicer bit) and folk aren’t unpatriotic here – probably because no one wanted to deal with both the paperwork and the reaction of drivers for causing any kind of disruption to traffic as this is an approach road for a large out of town supermarket, and they simply don’t have the time/energy/money any more.June 5, 2012 at 1:43 pm #1254080
BTW there is no way this can be acceptable – half arsed cheapskate security procedures risk endangering the safety of everyone from the royals to the wider public, and threats don’t just come from “foreigners” as the Dutch found out to their cost in 2009…
we can’t blame the Queen for this (I doubt she would be too impressed) – it is as much we the people who are to blame, especially after free and fair elections in a country with free speech there is still a consensus that more punitive regimes should be used against benefit claimants.
Even many left wing people say this, I’ve heard complaints about the welfare system from a prominent Green party activist in my town (though to be fair he would also have looked for a more positive solution). but without the full picture being looked at and the willingness to at least provide a basic standard of decent welfare, things like this are the result….June 5, 2012 at 1:52 pm #1254094
pretty filthy place to sleep london bridge.
i saw the last 20 mins of that jubilee shit on tv, i was laughing my ass off and complaining for 20 mins. the queen at the end looked bored and very tired and didn’t say a word. what a load of rubbish.June 5, 2012 at 2:05 pm #1254081

20 years ago they tried their best to stop the homeless from having to kip there… TBH what annoys me far more isn’t even stuff like royalty or patriotism (though some concepts are outdated not all of it is a bad thing) but what could be made into a lot more positive occasion seems to end up dividing people.
police helicopter been out at least twice over my estate following crimes of violence, folk have been attacked during the “celebrations” for stupid reasons. And all the EA raves got busted hard – can’t blame the queen for that either or even the cops as they were called there by locals grassing up the raves (the surveillance is more to get evidence on organisers for Court cases rather than forward intelligence)June 5, 2012 at 6:14 pm #1254085
The jubilee celebrations on TV yesterday looked soo boring. When they let grace jones on stage I was like sweet, so she sang while swinging her hula hoop about. But they only game the girl one song. Booooo Garry barlow your partys suck!!!June 5, 2012 at 6:30 pm #1254095
paul mccartney singing live and let die… it was so funny. he looks like a plastic old woman.
some people stood there waving flags for hours!June 5, 2012 at 6:52 pm #1254086
