If medals are to be awarded The Queen certainly deserves the Platinum; She was from start to finish the star performer. In fact, she has never ‘performed’, let alone during the Jubilee celebrations, she has always been herself: Loyal, dignified, stoic, charming, generous, patient and kind.
The Gold medal goes to Paddington Bear who stole our hearts, and clearly charmed Her Majesty. Having at last unlocked the secret of what is in her handbag, he has done us all a favour!
I wonder what Paddington ‘s Aunt Lucy in Darkest Peru must be feeling, knowing her nephew not only met the Queen but had a private tea party with her in Buckingham Palace?
The Silver medal goes to all the members of the Royal Family who stepped up and did their duty supporting the Queen. They delighted the nation with their invaluable and dedicated support of their mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. They were superb; elegant, charming, and very hard working.
The bronze goes to just about everyone else who helped to ensure the nation celebrated the making of history and saying, ‘Thank you’. The performing artists, members of the forces, the horses, the public and all those who just did their job to ensure everything ran smoothly and was uniquely British.
The booby prize goes to the vegans and animal rights idiots who jumped the barriers trying to disrupt the Trooping of the Colour, the pitiful insignificant and pathetic few who booed our Prime Minister as he arrived at St Paul’s for the Service of Thanksgiving for HM’s Platinum Jubilee.
Also the media channels and presenters which did their best put a negative light on the Monarchy by dragging out left wing, republicans who would clearly prefer to see President Corbyn or Starmer occupying Buckingham Palace.
And those The Mail on Sunday called “The Tory narcissists, pygmies and cowards”, who choose not to remember that without Boris, certainly one of those two would now be in No 10.
The result of which would be: Brexit wouldn’t have happened; we would still be ‘controlled by Brussels. We would not have led the world in developing vaccines for Covid, or end lockdown ahead of others. Without doubt we would be supporting Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. And the UK would be broke, not just facing the current financial difficulties.
These people should follow Her Majesty’s example by putting duty and loyalty to our country, before self-indulgence and disloyalty.
