What an utter waste of money. There are people having to use food banks in this country and we are wasting money on this rubbish.

i can understand the negative perspectives; that anything costing money for whatever reason has to be linked back to jobs, hospitals and someone's sick old nan... i really do get it. Equally though, i'm so glad the people the people such comments are designed to hook are currently outside in the sunshine with their their kids, homemade flags and sarnies; just happy to escape from reality for 20 seconds and be a tiny part of history.
