Why so glum about the Royal Wedding?

The Royal Wedding is a good thing for London tourism. But I’ve just seen interviews with USA press in London and they don’t get why the people on the street don’t seem that bothered by it all. What they don’t get is that the UK is in a recession, one which the USA paid its way out of. Prime Minister David Cameron is cutting funding for libraries, schools, arts, leisure, National Health services, et al. The English people are fed up of it all especially when they see privileged Royalty living it up with the best wedding in the world paid for by tax payers money. Okay, the wedding is paid for by the family but where did they get their money from? Hello!!! And the people are paying for security.

Prince William is well liked because of his humanitarian efforts and that’s cool. But please USA anchors, stop saying the English are quiet because of some mythic “English reserve” (The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Elton John are all English. Are they reserved?) when the reality is that we are suffering from Cameron’s “cuts, cuts, cuts.”

Of course I’m going to have a “jolly good time” down in London and party like the non-reserved Brit I am…oh and interview, report and take photos. I think it will be a lot of fun. The English know how to party.

He’s just finished a European tour and his music has appeared on One Tree Hill and Sisters of the Traveling Pants 2. At 23 years old he’s on the cusp of international stardom. I caught up with him today to talk about music, traveling, and football (soccer).
