The coverage of the Queen's diamond jubilee was like watching propaganda from North Korea.
The uniformity of the stupidity and sycophancy within the coverage was nauseating.
Every presenter was falling over themselves to proclaim the country's admiration for the monarch.
This discounted the substantial minority who think it would be better to elect a head of state rather then have a relic of feudal times imposed upon us.
The Queen, rather than symbolise a 21st century positive version of Britain, represents the very worst elements of the past.
She is a symbol of the landed aristocracy, inherited wealth, privilege and the rigid class system.
The Saxe-Coburg-Gotha have endangered Britain before. The desposed king Edward VIII gave away the position of the British expeditionary force to the nazis in 1940.
This has been expunged from history.
The jubilee celebrations were cringe worthy and an embarrassment.
They show this country's proclivity for looking backward and not forward.
The dysfunctional Saxe-Coburg-Gotha family are an extravagance that the taxpayer can no longer afford.
