Personally, I'm not doing anything special but if people want to celebrate I hope they have a nice time.

Best wishes to Mrs Windsor-Mountbatten. Done a pretty good job so far, if I were you I'd award oneself an OBE for services to Tourism....

Not sure if your joking but last year there was a national competition in schools for children to come up with a emblem which would feature on all things Jubilee....a 10year old girl from Chester drew this picture (apologies if you are joking)

We had a street party, yes it poured with rain, everyone huddled together under gazebo's, but by the late evening we had met, and made friends with, neighbours we had never had the chance to talk to. That's what this Jubilee was about, bringing people together in times of austerity.

waste of money as per -usual, if the royal family lived on a council estate they would be known as a problem family with a social worker. They take money from the Country (illegally) abuse their spouses, leave their kids for weeks, adultry, drunkens, druggies, sell their stories to the media. Fiddle their banks. Run away from the military forces. Refuse to go into battle. I could go on but I geuss you realise I'm stating they are no better than the parsites we see on the likes of trash tv.

Oh I,m with you my friend. I never had a view on the royal family until this weekend but I am fed up with endless celebrations and fanfares. Andrew Marr said that the Queen works really hard. Yeah, they fly her somewhere and she waves at people! My neighbours had a street party. How I laughed when it rained Queen reigns, God rains!

Sadly, I think, Her Majesty is being reduced to a cost factor and allthough it is difficult to substantiate the income in tourism she generates in pounds and pence, let's face it, Buckingham Palace or any other Royal Palace for that matter would amount to little more then just another museum to visiting tourist, were it not for the miniscule chance of catching a glimpse of a member of the Royal Family.

Why else would tourists line up outside her palaces if not for that reason.

Also, she is the finest ambassador for the realm, promoting understanding and togetherness, rather then hatred and self centeredness, as is done here all too often.

And that is a naturalized Brit saying that.

God Save the Queen and may her reign last for years to come yet.

She's the biggest benefits scrounger in the UK. Lives a life of unparalleled luxury financed entirely by the taxpayer. She even had the cheek to apply for poverty payments to help heat her palace:

nt.co.uk/news/uk/hom
e-news/queen-tried-t
o-use-state-poverty-
fund-to-heat-bucking
ham-palace-2088179.h
tml


So don't give me any cr@p about the queen promoting 'togetherness', Elizabeth Saxe-Coburg Gotha doesn't give a d@mn about the ordinary people of Britain.

What has she achieved? Living to 85 in luxury in a job she got through nothing more than accident of birth. Anyone could do that.

We would still get the tourism trade without the 'royals'. People still visit Hampton Court Palace even though Henry VIII has been dead for 465 years. France has a thriving tourist trade with no royals at all.

Bring on Madame la Guillotine.
