    Many of you may have noticed this trending on Twitter. MPs and members of the public alike have been out cleaning the streets today, not for the community or for the sake of being clean, but for the Queen.

    Well given a lot of places in Britain are holes in terms of dirt and litter, cleaning the streets 'for the community or for the sake of being clean' obviously isn't working, so they are trying a different tactic.

    Do you think this a clever tactic?

    It's better than nothing. It doesn't seem like this is aimed at getting ordinary people to be more clean, but community projects with schools, employers, etc. At the end of the day, the Queen is extremely popular so why not use her as a 'brand' for this? As I said, just saying 'make our communities clean' obviously hasn't worked that well.

    Having read comments on articles it seems like this is receiving a cynical backlash from republicans. It's a positive, good-willed campaign but because it involves the Queen it receives scorn.
