I follow the Queen and her entourage across the walkway. I’m only a few metres away from the Royal Box. I get to thinking wouldn’t it be some laugh if in I went and asked Her Majesty for a selfie (Stock picture)

The English haven't a clue what to do. Nor do we. Scotland doesn't know either and the Welsh are nonplussed.

So we have what is known as a vacuum in The Isles. And whether we're talking about doing the hoovering or reigning countries, vacuums must be deep-filled, like American apple pies and election potholes.

Note we used the term 'The Isles' and not the 'British Isles' or the 'British and Irish Isles'.
