    And here come the bootlicking colonists. (That's you, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Colchar).

    Sorry Ranky I had to do it. Might as well get it out the way early on.

    I was only 10 in 77. Short in stature & pubic hair but I do remember that being a very interesting year indeed.

    still don't understand why those in the UK tolerate the royals.

    Is this going to be another snooze fest? There are plenty of things right and wrong about every country. I'm not bothered either way by the Monarchy, like it or not the majority of us are subjects whoever is head of state, and that includes your country too.

    I didn't appreciate the royals when I was younger.
    Now I'm older I appreciate their value to the country more.
    Wish I could have my money back, but I sort of think of it as an investment now.
    Also wish they'd stop saying they're just looking after it all for me....!

    Because of this celebration tomorrow I'm going to take my two girls on a short walk to the promonade above Folkestone Harbour to watch an airshow that kicks off a 1300hrs with the best display team in the world....

    In before the scruffy silver haired socialist worker selling republicans.
    We have a street party tomorrow organised by the local library and may head up to Tower Bridge for the flotilla on Sunday.
    A chance to celebrate the past 60 years. Nice one Liz.

    That sure is the truth,Nick

    My lungs burn with sadness

    To see my beloved people

    and culture

    being dismantled by malicious social

    engineering

    God Save the final vestige

    to the Worlds

    Pioneers

    in human advancement

    :wave:
