OK, so today is/was the big Royal Wedding Day here in the UK. I'm not a fan, but I've been told it was well done, so respect for that.
It's clear though that the sheer magnitude of the event and the noise about it has divided the country pretty hard. I only heard two short radio snippets yesterday, and one was: "so tomorrow is the royal wedding. And whether you think that's wonderful or dreadful..." And the other one was a well-spoken man calling to a program and saying that the wedding is a cover-up of the governments and economy's collapse. Not a distraction, mind you, but a cover-up! And from the host's comments, he was far from the only one to say so. Wow. While the weather is really nice, it's not hot enough to justify that kind of thinking, if so it can be called.
