Don't forget the live music event from Windsor castle at 8pm on BBC1😆
A line up from hell for me. If they were playing in my garden I'd draw the curtains. Apart from Boccelli,everything that's crap about today's music

Yesterday's coronation seemed very well planned and executed and I can see why people were into it, even if I wasn't.

This concert on the other hand, is dreadful in every way imaginable.

The Mrs forcing me to watch this nonsense, she’s enjoying the music whilst I’m just staring at Nicole Schertzingers tits.

0.3 % of our tourism income. And that 0.3% is mainly through ticket sales to "royal attractions" which would still be there,monarchy or not. It's a myth appropriated by royal acolytes that there is tourism income that is solely based on us having a monarchy.

Apart from an extra day off now and then, what is it about the Monarchy that affects your life on a day to day basis, that brings you to the conclusion that you would rather be France? If you genuinely feel that then you daily life must have little or no interaction with the French, apart from what you see on the news.  They a massive (pun) Royal (pun) pain in the arse.

Think you may have quoted the wrong post.
As for being more like France,I'd say that,as an OAP, the extra 5 grand a year my french counterparts receive would be a start!🙂
