Long May She Reign Over Us

Alert!

I am captivated by the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. I know that Faux Fuchsia has hosted parties and dressed in theme (kudos!) but for those of us who prefer to participate form the couch, Channel 9 will show the Jubilee concert from 8pm AEST tonight.

I saw snippets this morning and not only does my idol, Tom Jones, perform a flamenco version of Delilah, but the rest of the show seems little less than star-studded – Our Kylie, Our Rolf, Our Gurrumul, Robbie Williams, Sir Paul, Grace Jones, Cliff Richard, Annie Lennox,Will.i.am, Jessie J and Sir Elton.

The crowds at the concert spread outside Buck Pal and down the Mall, waving flags and wearing silly wigs. Perfect. Between exuberance of The Wedding and The Jubilee, I hope the United Kingdom squashes The Riots in a blaze of red, white and blue.
