Last night at an industry dinner on the Gold Coast I was having a joke with some British TV producers about the Coronation.
I was gently mocking the ceremony for how everything about it was modern and progressive. Or at least I thought I was gently mocking.
From the magic stone seat, to the 500 year old spoon, to the oil from a duck, to the hand of God picking one man to rule over a whole bunch of people who have no say in the matter.
All the Australians at the table laughed.
The English producers shuffled uncomfortably and one said "But we do it well, don't we."
To which all the Australians felt the discomfort and politely agreed that England does do pomp and circumstance very well
I added that Harry Potter was also done very well, took my drink and left.
So — Happy Coronation Weekend to those who celebrate.
