The Queen

Have you noticed how many white people go out to see the Queen?

I honestly don't understand the interest behind royals, and I suspect that once Australia puts forward a detailed change to become a Republic, it'll happen without any real hassle. But still, this current trip of moderate crowds of white people really does demonstrate how far Australia has come from the colony that it once was.

In other news, I saw The King's Speech, which I thought was pretty decent.

So: win win.
