Well, I have been trying to avoid it.

I watched 'All the Queen's Horses' but was annoyed by the constant cutting away from the amazing formation riding and the other set pieces to the ruddy singers! The programme was supposed to be about the HORSES! :evil:

Bloody Beeb couldn't organise a bunch of Wizards at a Winetasting!

Cheers, Vena

I've been so successfully avoiding it that I didn't know it was a bank holiday today until I went shopping this morning. :doh:

Not sure if they'd do any better than ITV who made All the Queen's Horses but wasn't the French guy dancing with his horses MAGIC? I'm completely blown away by this....and when the foals came in to join their mums..... :clap: :clap:

Simon Bates (on Twitter) was moaning on about the BBC's coverage, and the sound.

I stayed well away from all things Jubilee. Anybody know what he was on about?

I heard one comment from someone who watched for 10 hours straight and then complained it was boring. :lol:

I managed to avoid it although the Wetlands and Wildfowl Trust place was way too busy with other people also trying to avoid it. :lol:

I got a paper on Monday, and there was an article that said that travel was chaos (shocker!), with the stations in London being very overcrowded, and people not being able to get on their trains.

London Bridge was particularly affected.

Great. Roll on the Olympics. I might be able to get to work by about midday. :roll:

I enjoyed what I saw of the Jubilee pageant.

The Beeb were awful, and kept cutting away from events to focus on the studio presenters, so I kept switching to Sky, who gave a much better coverage.

The Royals bobbing up and down in time to the Hornpipe was great fun to watch, and the decidedly drowned singers on the boat were brilliant.

I didn't watch the concert or the service at St. Paul's, although the photo of the Queen discreetly wiping away a tear at the St Paul's service was quietly moving.

To all the anti monarchists that feel the need to let others know that they are anti-royalists, I say: 'Bah! Humbug!' :snooty:
