The Queen


No idea. But she gave the country 70 years so I guess we can maybe take a week or two of abnormal media.

I fully respect the coverage that this momentous event is getting on the news channels and understand why news broadcasters want to maintain a 24/7 coverage. I think that people mourning take comfort from seeing the efforts of so many around the country to pay homage to Her Majesty, this one final time. It brings a sense of togetherness at what is a very sad time for many.

But I also think there are other important events going on in the world that should still retain some kind of media coverage. For example, lots of reports on social media today that the Ukrainians have launched a massive counter offensive and are very rapidly repatriating large swathes of their country against a disintegrating Russian army. Perhaps this has been covered by some news media outlets and I have missed it, but it is certainly newsworthy and deserving of some airtime, even at this moment in history.

Deeside in the sunshine. God's Own Country when the sun does make an appearance.

By the way, I agree Bob, that in particular TV news bulletins needed at least a little time on other events in the world. I guess they will increasingly do so but time should still have been found early on.

And lucky you got to Edinburgh, ma'am, before a mini monsoon hit us.

How are others overseas, Bob maybe, or LordBrownOf , seeing others react?


As an update on this here, our local town hall is organising a minutes silence in the town square on Sat in memory of QE II.  They are busy communicating this to both the Spanish and Expat communities.
