Grandma

In these challenging times it is good to see unveiled a £2m state funded memorial to an unelected woman paid millions of pounds by the British taxpayer, and whose surviving family consists of further unelected state funded multimillionaires.

Her grandson said:
At long last my grandparents are reunited in this joint symbol, which in particular reminds us of all they stood for and meant to so many during the darkest days this country has ever faced

At long last indeed, perhaps he could have chipped in, got it speeded up, he could probably spare a few quid.

Do I detect subtly Republican sympathies in that BBC report you link to?

The last time the Queen opened a Royal memorial - the Diana Fountain - it was derided and praised in equal measure.

The £5.2m fountain opened in July 2004 but closed a month later after it flooded and three visitors slipped and hurt themselves paddling in the water.


Long may she rain.

I doubt it - they fawned over Diana, and they still fawn over the Royals. Although Nicholas Witchell has looked a broken man since Charles slapped him down.
