Queen of Accington

Letter to Jonathan in Manhattan:
Today we stood outside Accrington Town Hall with thousands of others  and waited for the Queen Elizabeth II to arrive.


 While we were waiting we made friends with a retired nursing sister – and a nurse a generation her junior, a girl at 11+ age, and others from as far afield as Blackpool, Kew Gardens, and Kilmarnock. 


All there to catch a glimpse of the Queen, and her beloved husband Philip.
Prince Philip looked well, considering the fact he was poorly last week, and when I shouted “How are you Phillip?” he replied “Fine”
They are two fine ambassadors for the English working classes, and for many other ordinary people too.


Why do we love the royal family – because we have little in common with most people in their income bracket?


The reason is straightforward.
We love them because they reciprocate the love.
Unfortunately that can’t be said for most in their income bracket.


That’s one of the differences between new money and old money.

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
