Stuff the Jubilee

Queen Elizabeth II "ascended" to the the throne on 6 February 1952 and is thus celebrating her Diamond Jubilee.

I remember her Silver Jubilee back in 1977 when I was a youthful 15 years old. We proudly pinned these badges, produced by the Trotskyist Socialist Workers Party as part of their campaign against public sector budget cuts, to our school blazers. The school headmaster tried to prohibit us from wearing them!

It is as apt today as then!
