So, Republican, right?
Answer: I have stood at the end of three shows in the past four years, one of them had David Tennant in it, one of them had lasted over six hours and the final one was Wicked. I LIKE SEEING MY MONEY ON STAGE. (A turn of phrase that, unfortunately, fits as well with yesterday's wedding).
I like beautiful clothes and big shows and community involvement and drinking champagne at 11:00am (okay, 10:30am - we'd opened the second bottle by the time it got to the actual wedding and, given that I was, aherm, working I can only guess what it was like outside of the confines of - hmm, maybe I should be at my desk). I like history and beautiful buildings. I like cake. I really, really like cake.
I don't like my money being spent on an already wealthy family. I don't like the police pre-emptive response to the wedding. I don't like hierarchy based on an accident of birth.
But - SPECTACLE. And happiness. And cake.
But, to mix metaphors, sometimes the team that you don't want to win has the best tunes. And yesterday was that writ large.
