:Lol:

 

So folks,

 

What you doing over the Jubilee weekend?  Have you got any street parties planned or throwing a house party of your own or perhaps even coming to see the London celebrations?

 

Alternatively you could be doing nothing, but I like to think that we are all doing something.

I enjoyed the River Pageant despite the rain, although it did get a bit silly towards end and would of been so much better in the sunshine plus it was a shame we didn't have the flypass etc but hey ho.

 

My train driver this morning on way to work (London) did apologise for the rain, which made me smile.  I like it when train drivers have friendly chat over the comms as opposed to the usual "We are now arriving at Victoria".

 

Anyway the Festival tomorrow outside Bucky Pally.  I'm not going :( but hopefully it will be on TV.

 

I do have Tuesday off, anything happening that day? Probably not.

I usually assume that they've been drinking when they do that.

I think ya probably right as the later the night is the more likely it is to happen and the more bizarre it gets.

Waiting for William and Kate to take over, so we can have pride in the monarchy again and actually have some truely English people at the helm. 

 

Only then, will the people in this multi-cultured ancient and incredibly innovative nation be truely justified in calling this country GREAT Britain again - some of us haven't forgotten about Diana you know? 

 

One day, maybe hundreds of years from now, I think Princess Diana will definitely and rightly so, be made a saint - Elisabeth II I don't think so!

I respectfully disagree, it's Phillips charm and intelligence coupled with the Queens exuberant personality that go towards making this nation great.

Indeed. Although I imagine that remains very much an unmentioned event in royal circles.

What is this fixation you have about kids - can't you have them or something? 
Ginger baby? Is that what your problem is, you were bullied at school for having ginger hair? They didn't stick your head down the loo to try and wash it off did they?
Now that would have been cruel - funny though!
Haa haa hee hee - definitely a candidate for Youtube material I would say

Not if Prince Charles dies before the Queen, then the crown would be passed on to Prince Andrew and then it would be Princess Beatrice to inherit the throne instead of the Prince William. In 2022 HM Queen Elizabeth II would be celebrating her last ever Jubilee... The Platinum Jubilee. If she makes to this milestone, she'll be the longest reigning monarch in British history and the first to celebrate the Platinum.

 

Long live the Queen!

If your way of thinking is right it would be princess Anne before Andrew pretty sure she's older?

Not sure about if Charles dies it passes his kids but if it is then it would go to Andrew before Anne because he's male.

No, next in line after Charles is William, then Harry, then Andrew and those vile daughters of his.

I think he was trying to say, well he did say, if Charles dies before he becomes king then William and Harry wouldn't get a look in. First I've heard of that one.

Harry is an interesting one in terms of succession, given his parental circumtances. Unlikely to ever be a issue in practice though.

I'm an animal lover & I remember my mother telling me how she'd never forget or forgive the queen for smiling would you believe when a baby elephant was running around looking for it's mother that had just been murdered by somebody on one of those damn hunts they like to go on. 

 

I've often wondered if Lady Diana would still be with us if that piece of work hadn't taken her HRH away!

 

I also remember how she responded when a very ill child with a ventilation tube up her nose gave her a bouquet of flowers on her last jubilee. Instead of kneeling down & properly communicating with the child like Diana would have done or any normal mother come to that, she took the bouquet from this child who can't have been more than about six years old as if the child had leprosy or something!

 

She had to be almost dragged kicking & screaming back to London to do the right thing by her subjects - us gullible sods!

 

She's power hungry & nearly lost it, if it hadn't have been for Tony Blair.

 

Some of us don't forget or forgive!

Like Diana would have done if there was a TV camera pointing at her, and she would have ensured that there was.
