  • It wasn't that bad, sure, the remnants of Queen turned up simply to plug their crappy musical and there were several talentless groups such as Blue and S Club 7 there, but all in all it could of been worse. Paul McCartney played the old songs and that was enjoyable enough. Ozzy Osbourne (probably plugging his fly on the wall thingy) was quite funny when he came back on stage and you got the feeling the danger meters were going off in the organisers booth.

    But was it really a celebration of the monarchy? Or
    • Or was it a celebration of Britain

      Do you mean Britain? Or do you mean the United Kingdom? There's a difference and I'd expect you, of all people, to get it right :)


      • Naturally, I was just conveying a sentiment that was expressed by the Queen herself last night (with the inclusion of the Corrs), in that while the R.o. Ireland is of course a seperate country they are special to us in that they are linked by land to the UK and many other links (sports, the arts, etc.).So the Queen's informal nod to Ireland was reflected in my post.

        Of course some people who have less enlightened views than her majesty and myself continue to pendantically point out differences in national boundaries and it is these people who slow the movement to peace and unity with our neighbours. Such is also the way of republicans who seem to feel that the destruction of the monarchy will bring some unprecedented golden age for our nation.

        Of course, I would of expected more of you Dave, our have you been out waving a flag with Tony's face on it this weekend, calling for El Presitente Bliar to be recognised as the true symbol of our land?

        ;-)

        p.s. He didn't look too chuffed when Ben Elton did ``a little bit of potitics'', although it was soft as a very soft thing.
        • have you been out waving a flag with Tony's face on it this weekend

          Of course not. I have about the same amount of respect for Blair as I do for the Monarchy.

          On another note. I wonder how much censorship the Palace imposed on people's set lists at the concert. I notice that Paul McCartney didn't play Give Ireland Back To The Irish :)
