    We used to have street parties when I was little, they were always brilliant. If I can find a local one, I'll be going.

    God I am glad I'm in Paris.
    Paris is probably historically the city with the most cases of civil unrest in the world. So much so that the Marseillaise was sung during revolutions in the 1900s in Russia.

    Yes, but they had the good sense to boot out their royals several centuries ago so they wouldn't have to put up with this sort of patronising poppycock.

    La Marseillaise! What does civil unrest have to do with street parties? and I think you will find that they were singing due to our close bond :cool:

    Close the roads for a party? I guess that explains a lot about the M6.

    How ironic you say that, considering they replaced the royals with an Emperor, then in the 1830s brought in another monarch, then after 1871 they invited the king to return and the king rejected them.

    And France today is such a paradise without its monarchy, right?

    After crippling the UKs funding, he expects us to "party". The only time when Street parties of such a scale occur, is when Cameron leaves no 10 for Good! :party:
    Yes, lets all sit inside and be miserable.

    I am seriously thinking of leaving the country on the 29th. Pop on the Eurostar to Brussels and indulge in some fine beer and chocolate. Hell, I might even find some inspiration for my dissertation topic there.

    Yeah people just love to hate. I hink its a grate idea. Im foreign and we dont have a queen/king etc. And i think you guys should be proud you do. Its you history and it makes you country special.
    I personal find this couple a bit annoying and its weird how their faces are on cups and calendars..... but they dont harm anyone so why do you hate them.
    + its an extra weekend to have fun and celebrate something what makes you country special.

    i bet if you were given no extra holiday or allowed to have street parties people would moan how in old days you were and now you are not ....and hate again!

    hard to please dont you think?

    Some people will really use any excuse to Cameron-bash, it's not even funny. It's like someone told them it was fashionable so now they don't even think about a story before "PM from Mars" et cetera.
    Some people are just miserable, and want everyone else to be as miserable as they are. This constant stream of cynicism is enormously damaging to our society, and quite frankly it's childish.

    damn, what's with all the hate?

    I'm no massive fan of the Royal Family, but it is our future Head of State getting married, and we've been giving a long weekend... what's to complain about? If it generates a little sense of community or national pride it will be doing better than most occasions.

    I swear some people would complain if they were given a winning lottery ticket.

    Laughing at the commoners through the 10ft tall steel-fenced, police-guarded perimeter whilst he eats caviar on French toast and canapés, washed down with some fine champy-poos?

    Also seeing as Cambo, his family and Curious George are the only residents of the street, it would be the worst party ever!

    Yes, don't you think so?
    its weird how you think so....i would say Germany is better than England in many things....
    but not France. Ive been to France many times and i really like it but if i had to choose who's better of France or England i would say England....(Im not interested in politics so i dont know much about political etc differences. im just basing my view on what i saw while being there)

    + what is it to do with monarchy . you monarchy doesn't do ****. its not like you have an evil dictator down here
