The Jubilee: how will you celebrate

The jubilee is just around the corner.
The nice, rare, sunny british weather is training for this bank holiday by having a colossal downpour yesterday.

Street party, private party, long pub session, or just not bothered?

Although on the wrong side of public opinion (at the moment) life long republicans like me will be looking forward to the end of her reign and the likely outpouring of displeasure at Charles's accession, which might prompt some more to come over to our side and end this outmoded irrelevant archaic institution and so topple the system of top down power, paternal protection and hereditary privelege which impedes our chaances of moving forward as a modern 21st century democracy - of the people for the people and by the people. Gotta go and polish my soapbox now.

I might spend the day listening to some anarcho punk. Feeding of the 5000 by Crass will fit the occassion suitably.

Australia has yet to escape from the yoke of tyranny I fear, we'll have to go further afield.

Not sure why anybody would want to 'celebrate' the descendants of foreign invaders who subjugated and enslaved our ancesters and continue to exploit us to this day. It seems like some collective form of Stockholm Syndrome to me, presumebly magnified by the sheer numbers of those affected.

I think it's time we relegated the feudal class system to history and got jiggy with the 21st century.

Republican party for me
