Surely the old bint should be giving something back to the nation, after all we have payed for her and her inbred family for 60 years! It's like a posh version of Jeremy Kyle!

An opt out box on my tax so I can choose not to contribute to the outmoded and outdated concept of the Royal Family!

Think you only have to look at how popular the royal wedding was last year to blow that theory of being outmoded and outdated out of the water Forky

The Jubilee actually takes place on the 6th February, the first day of her reign. Is it not strange that in a 1000yrs of British monarchy only two have reached that particular milestone and they are both female.

Isn't is strange for Cameron to say that a day of work lost due to striking is terrible for the economy but then he creates an extra Bank Holiday to celebrate some old pampered unelected 'anachronism'?!

A royal jubilee and the bloody olympics all in the same summer. I feel the despair setting in already.
How long would I have to take off to miss them both? I think I may be feeling the need to go camping somewhere really remote and not come back till it's all over.

I am an avid sports fan, however given the main aim of those involved appears to be to get as rich as possible coupled with the corruption not only of the organisers but also, unfortunately, some of the athletes I am thinking of slipping out of the country for the period of the Olympics. The cost of the opening and closing programmes is enough to put me off when set against the employment figures and the weekly list of companies going into liquidation.

God you lot are a bunch of miserable sods. You get a free paid day off, the olympics will be fab and you'll still be moaning.
As ACT says, go camping somewhere remote, turn the TV and radio off, take up fishing blah blah.

I think they should legalise all drug use in the Olympics and turn it into a pharmacology competition, see just how far you really can push the human body before it snaps...
