Queen looked utterly smug and disinterested. I like her even less now.
Or as a woman in her mid 80's at 12.30 at night she looks shattered and ready for her bed! She's human remember. If she didn't take her duty so seriously she could have fobbed it off to Charles or William. Don't be an anti-monarchist ass for the sake of it. Context helps.
Something to do with the history of the Olympics itself, Nigel. Can't remember exactly.
In any case, fantastic ceremony. As technically impressive as Beijing but thought it was quite an emotional and quirky ceremony. It definitely reminded me how great this country is.
I agree stunning and really classy with lots of details. Best of British by far
The French thing is because they masterminded the modern olympics and so it's always in French too- also a lot of Europeans/Africans who have rough english have better French
