The Jubilee week has passed, and again the good people of Croydon and Sutton showed their stoic character and partied away despite the weather. I managed to call in on a few celebrations and was struck by the enthusiasm and by connection, people's high regard for our Monarch. These are not easy times for many people, and there is often a tendency to gloom. But last weekend was an ideal, and important opportunity for our residents to kick back and enjoy themselves. It also reminded those rather chippy Republicans that they are in a very small minority. The Euro Football Tournament is upon us, but following my Iron Rule of football, which is if it's not Palace or The Rams, I'm not too bothered, (applied particularly to the Prima Donnas of the Premiership), I shan't be tuning in much. As a patriot, though, I wish England well of course, and I particularly am keen on an English Manager.
