Tbf though as bad as this is, they're also closing doctors and cancelling hospital treatments including operations on Monday when they (finally) bury the queen. It's utterly ridiculous. As I keep saying most people are not that arsed.
I was in town on Saturday and there were about 15/20 bunches of flowers at the official memorial. They'd set barriers far back expecting thousands. There was a bigger queue for the burger van.
