    Royalists are a bit like religious people to me. That kind of stuff doesn't factor in my day to day life and it's nothing I care or think about, and I kind of forget other people do. Then when I come across someone who actually believes and cares about this kind of stuff I find a bit weird and disconcerting. Like talking to a mental person.

    My neighbours are embarrassing. One of them has draped their house in shitty little Union Jacks. The other has erected an entire 15 foot high flagpole complete with Union Jack at half mast and England Flag at the top.

    I swear people who previously didn't care about the Royals have been duped by the media frenzy into participating.

    That's because you are talking to a mental person.

    In fact I don't get the whole thing. What are we celebrating? The Queen? Or just Britishness in general?

    Patriot - A person who is proud of their country to such an extent as to be unnervingly reactionary or discriminatory, usually with a belief that the rest of the world is inferior.

    We're celebrating that the Queen has managed to stay quite popular despite contributing practically nothing to society and sitting about living in luxury for 60+ years at everyone else's expense. Maybe we should have a similar event for those that manage to stay on benefits for 60 years too :)

    @lukus

    Well, that's the trick, isn't it? The Royal family have engrained themselves in to the nation identity. So if you don't love the Royal Family, you don't love your nation. As your nation is made up of the people who belong to it, if you don't love your country, you must hate everybody and yourself. What is wrong with you?

    It's a neat little wheeze, and means those who are in power stay exactly where they want to be, and manage to convince everybody else they're doing them a favour in doing so.

    Firstly the Euro's and Olympics mean that people are economising by only purchasing one set of bunting this year.

    Besides which, I guarantee that if we didn't have two days off, people would really not give half a shit.

    Lovely jubilees?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Four day weekend is reason for celebration enough, you miserable motherfuckers =)

    That's two long weekends we've had out of the royal family this year, God bless them, I say.
