Her Maj

After abandoning an attempt earlier in the week, due to panic-buying of tickets, to go and see the David Hockney exhibition at the RA, this afternoon I've been to see the Jubilee exhibition at the Cartoon Museum. Even by their standards it's a small selection, though quite tightly packed in to one small room, and sadly there was no catalogue, but I did enjoy it and thought there was quality if not quantity. There's an air of deference of course, conscious or not, to many of the cartoons; the most biting were probably those relating to the upgrade of the Civil List by Edward Heath in 1970. More often than not, though, the Queen is portrayed as making do, despite all that is going on around her. How very British.
