We might not be up to much else, but we can still put on a decent show, and what a show.
I have to agree with Cristina Odone and Toby Young in the Telegraph. We are and remain a Christian, conservative country. Without question, the marriage of our future King and Queen in the glorious Westminster Abbey has been met with a national tide of celebration. This was no hark back to the past, there was nothing “old-fashioned” in the extraordinary joy found in the enormous crowds in london and thousands of street parties up and down the land. So magnificent is the day we just may not have changed as much as some of us have feared and some have hoped.
This is us, today, as we are, the British people having a jolly good knees up. Now I’m off down the pub.
