The folks down the road at Wootton Bassett have been doing something that has seemed sadly lacking in recent years, other than by minorities, in paying their respects. To have been acknowledged in this way is not something that they sought, but that makes it all the more of an honour.
And well done to our Queen as well for bestowing the honour. Royal support has also declined in recent years along with the standards of decency, and it is acts like those that the people of Wootton Bassett have shown that demonstrate just how far standards have slipped in this country.
So thank you to both town and Queen for standing up for something good and right. As a son of the Royal County I salute you both.
