Nice to see that her majesty Queen Elizabeth II is making good use of the very latest tele-conferencing technology to conduct her weekly audience with her PM Boris Johnson, who is still rather poorly with a fever it seems.

The Queen is due to address the nation on Sunday evening at 8pm BST according to a press statement.

She will be using a loudhailer.

How I miss proper telephones! I don't hear as well as used to and most people now speak so fast, as if they had to get a ton of information out before the microphone is snatched away. The stupid little flat devices that don't fit the ear and don't reach the mouth exacerbate the problem, even if they're high quality, which mine isn't. As she's the same age as my mother, I wouldn't be surprised if her hearing were even less acute than mine.

Teenagers find them rather puzzling though.

I suppose the gene pool keeps getting shallower as global warming evaporates a larger surface area.
