It looks like there are 6,500 applications with councils (the DM hype figure refers to applicaton packs issued which is not an application).

Although it's higher than the number for the wedding it is still a low number to my mind although I read a few weeks ago that holiday bookings were up for this period as people wanted to get away from it all.

This was the Guardian story at the time with figures of 5,500 from the Local Govt Association so it should be accurate. The DM story is saying they have 6,500 APPLICATIONS. The 10,000 figure is for information sent out - again being devious with the truth.

After all this hype it doesn't seem many.

Many are going away like last time

http://travel.aol.co.uk/2012/05/08/the-great-diamond-jubilee-getaway-holiday-bookings-soar/

and this is the most disgraceful attempt at journalism I have seen in a while. The DT should be ashamed it's full of conjecture and few facts apart from the bookings at the Landmrk at 50% when it seems the annual average in London is 82% so that's hardly impressive.

Hmmm not much info about.  I do recall the parade along the Mall which seemed a huge success however it seems there was just as much apathy then as now:

and this from the BBC the comments sound familiar. Looks like a long, slow reduction in interest.

Well so much for 10,000 parties it seems there are 6,500 after all as it is now too late to apply for a road closure order. If the press keep spinning at this rate they'll either make themselves sick or spin their way all the way to North Korea where they'll probably feel at home.

This will be like the wedding really hype in numbers by the press/media but the reality is something else.I think now and after all this the people will feel like what did they just celebrate really a questionale mega rich family what's the point.When they themselves don't know if they can pay their bills next month.

I don't think the stupid Brit press understands that not too many are celebrating mainly because there is nothing about the RF that they want to celebrate. I mean, a Queen that has not really acted like a Queen of times past (compared to her ancestors like Elizabeth I and endless other monarchs who put their lives on the line for their country) and it's not like she's even managed ot keep her family in line and she didn't pay tax until the nineties and only because of a public outcry.

Considering the expense, what is the point?

Britain is basically celebrating a womans good fortune to still  be alive to be at her own Jubilee.If she had died last year there wouldn't have been a Jubilee .I do think its time for her to step down and pass the torch to Charles and stand behind her son.Its ridicilous that Britain might get a king near his 70's.The Queen can ease the public and the press into King Charles.The monarchy may have a greater chance in surviving than if Charles would take over while his mother is dead.he wouldn't have a buffer.

It's not like HM did anything other than keep her dignity; as for Charles, let Charles take over and let HIM dela with his insane son. I'ts not like HM has shown an interest in keeping her wayward family in order and it's not like she put her heel in Kate's face to save the dynasty and the 'face' of the nation.

The Queen will never step down, she will wear the crown until she dies. That is what she has always said over the years.   easter-wink

goodluck to Charles getting the throne if the Queen lives as long as her Mother did.    king
