Boris Johnson - My Fake Diary
Friday, 18 May 2012
The Thames Pageant will be 'like Dunkirk but more cheerful'!
The Queen will be treated to "the biggest such flotilla for 350 years" as the nation shows its thanks for her 60 years of service.
There's going to be skiffs and wherries and schooners and sampans and dhows and dragon boats and just about every kind of vessel you can imagine.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have been given the honour of travelling with the Queen aboard the royal barge, Spirit of Chartwell, when it joins the 1,000-vessel flotilla on June 3.
Of course, I will be there creeping along with many other MPs!
