As I said in my last post I’ve been in England catching up with the family, and a great time was had by all.
Our visit coincided with Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee. I’m not in any way a royalist, I’ve never really understood the point of having a monarchy in a modern democratic state. In some ways I see the role of the Queen now as being the icon for the historic theme park that Britain has become, a bit like Mickey Mouse is the iconic figurehead for Disneyland.
This video is the first of a series that explores how I feel about England having not lived there since 1988. The title comes from a piece of graffiti I found while in Brighton.
