There are flags everywhere. If it isn’t a Union Jack it’s a cross of St. George. The foyer looks like the Tory party conference.
‘Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel’ I don’t know who said it, but I do like the sound of it.
I’m not Republican enough to begrudge Queenie the celebration of her fifty years. It’s the football frenzy that bugs me. I wish we got this sort of coverage every time Brits were competing at an international level. I could take the sudden appearance of four day eventing in the schedules if it meant I got to see mountain biking (downhill, XC BSX and trials), snowboarding and the like.
