    And today's "highlights", a Lancaster bomber and BBC coverage featuring Dame Kelly Holmes.

    So, something that killed Germans 60 years ago and a probable drugs cheat. I have no idea what message we are trying to portray to the outside world, other than we are the naffest country on the planet.

    I really need to emigrate.

    Great concert I thought. Kylie singing her hit from a decade ago, Elton performing a medley of his hits from 30 odd years ago, a bloke from the Beatles who broke up 40 years ago, Tom Jones, Grace Jones and Sir Cliff, and to round it off top presenting from dear Rolf and our Lenny making highly appropriate jokes based on skin colour, who's not only not been funny for about 30 years, he's barely even been black for at least 20.

    Great Britain, we're pioneers dontcha know.

    Damn right, they built an Empire on slave labour so it's only fitting.

    Portable view - Never forget.

    The "outside world" doesn't really care, so you're not portraying anything to the outside world.
    Stay calm, carry on.

    Jesus, are the celebrations still going?! I thought the Royal Wedding media saturation from last year was bad, but this is ridiculous.

    So much ridiculous saturation that you've managed to remain completely unaware that it's still going on until now.

    Emigrate to a country without the internet so we don't have to listen to your fucking moaning.

    I don't get what all the fuss is about. We're all supposed to be happy about some granny who was born into luxury paid for by us taxpayers? Bizarre.

    I drive an automatic 'cause I'm too cool to change gears.

    She drove a forklift during the war effort so at least she's able to pass real driving tests.

    Wrong. I saw the flotilla on the Thames, and knew there was a concert yesterday. Didn't realise there was more celebrations today and certainly wasn't expecting it to continue to domino at the BBC and other news outlets the way it has.

    Here's a great idea:

    Everyone on JSA in London, you can:

    a) put yourself forward for selection as a jubilee volunteer.

    b) demonstrate you are unfit to work (physical, learning disability etc).

    c) agree to forfeit this month's handout.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    CheekyPrawnking, or whatever your name is.... President Thatcher?! You must live in the south of England to spout tripe like that. Downright offensive. We have yet to fully recover from the Thatcher years. Bad times. Bad times indeed.

    The one word in the last sentence sums it up, really: inhumanity. It boggles my mind that in 21st century Britain people are being pushed into work where they're told to sleep under London Bridge the night beforehand, have no access to toilets for 24 hours, and then aren't paid a penny at the end of it (unless you count a sandwich and a packet of crisps as payment, of course).

    It is fucking bizarre that anyone thinks this was in any way shape or form 'okay'.

    Was watching the Press Preview on Sky News last night. The editor of The Spectator, Fraser Nelson, seemed to think it was fine - "They volunteered".

    I think the "empathy" part of their brain isn't working. The observation in the article about people being spoken of like they're livestock was pretty good.

    Queeny came to Hitchin yesterday. Had no idea. Was wondering why primary school kids were walking from town back to school with a bunch of union flags.
