HM the Queen was fair-play enough, to forgive the Pistols who spoilt a previous Jubilee of hers (1977) and Freddie who was quite outrageaous too (Wembley 86), and great enough to organize a revival of the Swingin’ London. (Live on BBC Radio2).
Of course, it was quite logical to celebrate 60 years of reign with the music of the sixties, and to invite both former Beatle Sir Paul (McCartney) and former eccentric Sir Elton John, but all must be grateful for her inviting beautiful Kylie Minogue (and Annie Lennox and several other great singers).
As regards Rock n’ Roll tonite, those who think they may not like watching 60 year old British ladies twisting and shouting like in the golden era of the mini-skirt (and other beauties England invented in the Sixties and a few hundred years around) …
… may just listen to Madness on the radio on BBC Radio 2 http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio/bbc_radio_two/listenlive (anyway, the show on TV may only be watched on BBC One for internet user in theUK).
And those who would like to read on the Internet while listening to the show, may e-read some French eBooks about changes in the current years (which are and/or may become quite “Rock n’ Roll” indeed in many other places than re-swingin’ London).

Last time so many ships were seen on the Thames River was 350 years ago, long before the Empire was built with united energy and intelligence, then preserved with great Royal talent. Even before the Cutty Sark sailed first. Bravo @ all in Britain.
The old Lady (the Cutty Sark, of course, honni soit qui mal y pense) will be happy to hear what so many boats have to say about so many seas since so many years, all the more since she can’t herself sail “odlschool way” for Queen and Country anymore.
One may not always agree with the Brits, especially when French, but one must admit they did a great job at sea over centuries, even if one may regret not to see the Queen’s picture under the sun of the other side … of the world, in Hong-Kong too. Anyway, please Click on picture to hear “Rule Britannia”.
To wait for the naval extravaganza, the James Clavell novell “Tai-Pan” novel is as close to pefect as possible. Otherwise, to read in French about less British changes in the world as it goes nowadays “the other side(s)”, please click on pictures.
