I’m gonna say it. I’m not bothered about the Olympics. To be honest, if the Jubilee didn’t mean the potential for street parties, an extra-long weekend and the excuse to eat many celebratory cakes, I wouldn’t be particularly fussed about that either.
However, these mammouth events did get me to thinking about this great nation of ours. And it is great. Despite the dubious governmental decisions of late, the rather bonkers economy and the incessant rain as soon as a hose pipe ban rears its ugly head, this place we live isn’t half bad. It’s full of incredibly talented people, making and doing all manner of rather marvellous things.
So, in homage to Britain, the Brits and, hell, why not, the Queen … here are some truly cool Britannia-inspired bits and pieces … Enjoy.
