Watching this on the Beeb. Top quality mindless drivel from their Z list presenters. Any chance one of the boats will sink, it might liven proceedings up a bit. Phil would doubtless make a suitable comment.
BBC News 24 & Sky News have both been covering this non event nonstop since Friday. I've lost count of the references to Dunkirk and Brittania ruling the waves from presenters desperate to find something to say.
It's typically British, it's all a bit dull, it's pissing down with rain and all the Huns have been in Brenda's dressing up box again.
Surely there is something more entertaining they could put on than three hours of a damp octoganerian waving at peasants.
"Acid Rain"? Is that the best punishment you can envisage for the tossers who take part in this farce. I would think that if the participants were hosed down with machine guns as they minced into the stadium would be far more viewer friendly.
Despite the utter banality of the TV presenters, I am actually enjoying the whole event. To see both banks of the Thames for mile upon mile bedecked with Union flags and thousands upon thousands of spectators is one in the eye for all those sour-faced Republicans and their ilk. I watched a dork called Medhi Hasan on The Big Questions show this morning whinging about how he had not "voted" for her and he would much rather have a President. Polly Toynbee was dripping the same shit yesterday. Sod the lot of them!
I personally hope her Majesty has had a great day out and long may she reign.
