what an excellent celebration laid on for the weekend – such a shame that The BBC were so incredibly incompetent, amateur and crass with not a single commentator of repute or visibility throughout their disgracefull coverage of the flotilla & River Pageant on The Thames – The BBC were a total embarrassment as they tried to do it on the cheap so their over paid executives could have the day off!
For me one of the WOW moments of the weekend was the generouys messge from the American peoples delivered by their elected President:
To which I felt compelled to comment on YouTube:
I am seeking a text of this message and will post it when I have located it.
In the meantime:
President Obama today honored Queen Elizabeth’s 60 years on the throne, sending her the “heartfelt congratulations of the American people” on the historic occasion of her Diamond Jubilee.
Addressing “Your Majesty” in a video message, Obama describes the queen as “both a living witness to the power of our alliance and a chief source of its resilience.”
“In war and in peace, in times of plenty and in times of hardship, the United States and the United Kingdom have shared a special relationship. We’ve stood tall and strong and together we’ve faced some of the greatest challenges this world has known,” he says.
While many U.S. presidents and British prime ministers have come and gone, Obama notes “your majesty’s reign has endured.”
“As a steadfast ally, loyal friend and tireless leader, your majesty has set an example of resolve that will be long celebrated,” he says.
Looking to the future, Obama says it is “gratifying to know that the bonds between our nations remain indispensable.”
“May the light of your majesty’s crown continue to reign supreme for many years to come,” Obama concludes.

British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit of their own agenda and greed, have done more damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.
The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain more than the armies of Hitler and the Franco – German – Italian axis of 1939 – 1945.
