I've been feeling a bit worried about how negative so much of this blog is – almost inevitably, given the way I feel about the modern world. However, I have decided to make a conscious effort to post at least one positive comment per week in future. So for this week, I am celebrating the 80th birthday of our dear Queen, and the fact that so many people genuinely seem to appreciate her, our contitutional monarchy and the fantastic she has done for the country for more than 50 years. In a TV poll the other day I'm glad to say that 67% said they supported the monarchy and want the Queen to go on reigning as long as possible. A pathetic 12% claimed they wanted a republic. So here's to Her Majesty – how lucky we are to have her! God Save the Queen!
