Less pearls and bling.

Verdigris - 05 Apr 2020 20:03:34 (#2 of 78)

Fewer, ffs!

MrsBollocks - 05 Apr 2020 20:04:12 (#3 of 78)

Oops.

TommyDGNR8 - 05 Apr 2020 20:05:21 (#4 of 78)

I'm sure we've seen that frock fairly recently.

She thanked the people staying at home. That's me.

Tenesmus - 05 Apr 2020 20:06:17 (#6 of 78)

I found that curiously moving.

fogsake - 05 Apr 2020 20:07:01 (#7 of 78)

So did I.

FUMMIN that the Communists at the Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation didn’t play the National Anthem.

solomongursky - 05 Apr 2020 20:07:55 (#9 of 78)

The kid banging the saucepan was the best bit.

Verdigris - 05 Apr 2020 20:08:21 (#10 of 78)

I was only listening in black & white. Would a viewing on the televisual device be beneficial?

tasselhoff - 05 Apr 2020 20:10:03 (#11 of 78)

She's going to live to 138

GreenFuture - 05 Apr 2020 20:11:31 (#12 of 78)

Good stuff.

I'd rather she did them quite frequently, the twats who smashed our NHS get their fizzogs on screen every night of the week.

The whole thing's here if you want:

Is it really only seven more years until her 75th jubilee?

TommyDGNR8 - 05 Apr 2020 20:19:34 (#15 of 78)

She'll be sending herself a telegram before then.

Thanks, solomon. A rare case of the pictures not being better on the wireless.

Verdigris - 05 Apr 2020 20:26:15 (#17 of 78)

She'll be sending herself a telegram before then.



I used to joke with my mum that she'd be getting a telegram from the queen. They were the same age. Looks like mum got out just in time. Tense times, I imagine, for the lovely staff at her care home.

Well that was Vera Lynn in disguise, wasn't it. Short and to the point though.

Verdigris - 05 Apr 2020 20:35:58 (#19 of 78)

And in touch with the zeitgeist, changing "whale meat again?" to "we'll meet again".

popstar7 - 05 Apr 2020 20:46:30 (#20 of 78)

Loved this moment in the Queen’s speech.
