The flag shaggers really are out in force today, aren’t they? Look, I don’t actually have a particular problem with the monarchy. Sure, it’s kind of stupid and ridiculous, but honestly it’s not at the top of our list of problems. Frankly it’s not even top 50. And from the very little I know about the Queen she sounds decent enough.

But the whole nation seems to be losing its collective mind over the fact that she’s still not dead, each paper and each politician (of whatever stripe) doing their damnedest to out-sycophant the last and … I just don’t get it.

Apparently that means I hate my country. Which I don’t, quite the opposite, but whatever.
