I can't quite understand that some working class people are ok with the sheer lavishness of it all. And I don't buy that "oh they bring a lot of money into the country through tourism". I read that they account for 0.3% of our tourism income.

Can we opt out of the 'day off'?

Would swap the 'day off' for the disolution of the monarchy.

Make sure you enjoy raising a toast to the paedo's brother.

Not sure why you replied to mine and not any of the previous 4 above.

Why not just go to work citizen and make a stand, on the moral high ground. Embarrass all those part time socialists getting a freebe by jumping on the bandwagon. Rubbing shoulders with the international great and good. You could have your name up in lights on next weeks morning star or socialist worker.

Itís a shame that there has been so much vitriol in this thread. Iím proud to be British (even though I know the country is just a little bit shit). I donít think any other country does as much pomp and majesty as us. I didnít watch all of QE2ís funeral, but it was a hell of a spectacle. That will have been beamed all around the world and will be what people remember about Great Britain. That is a much better advert for tourism than you could make up for Minehead, Skegness or Blackpool!

Iíd much rather the country be remembered for pomp and majesty rather than being represented by sunburned football shirted, tattoo wearing, foul mouthed drunken thugs that I see when abroad on holiday.

Having said that, I wonít be watching. Iíll catch the highlights and will enjoy the bank holiday.

I spend my life travelling with work and nothing makes me happier than flying back over London as I'm coming into land. We get a lot more right than most countries.

"Dear rest of the world, Don't be fooled by any propaganda you see coming out of the UK this weekend. The mood here is not jubilant, it is sour," she said.

"England is a fascist nightmare, where there are more food banks than branches of McDonalds. We don't want pageantry, we want affordable food, and rent, and bills.

The timing of this coronation, with all its gold and bejewelled opulence, couldn't be more distasteful and sickening. It's unjustifiable and it's unwanted.
