There’s a big to do across the pond. The British are going crazy for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee:
Pealing church bells and crowds cheering “God save the queen!” greeted Queen Elizabeth II on Tuesday as she arrived for a service at St. Paul’s Cathedral on the last of four days of Diamond Jubilee celebrations honoring her 60 years on the throne.
During the service, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, praised the queen for bringing happiness to the nation. His thoughts were seconded by jubilant crowds that cheered royals major and minor as they made their way to the service of thanksgiving.
“We are marking six decades of living proof that public service is possible and that it is a place where happiness can be found,” Williams told the royals and dignitaries filling the vast landmark church designed by Christopher Wren in the 17th century.
I watched a bit of it on the telly this moring and thought it was all bloody rubbish. It only made me want to watch the Sex Pistols peform “God Save the Queen”.
