State Opening

They closed off Westminster and St James's Park to traffic this morning for the State Opening of Parliament. Which meant walking my bike for a mile along eerily quiet, almost deserted streets, past ranks and ranks of policemen with guns.

The only flash of humanity was the occasional tourist with wheelie luggage who had decided to stand still and have a gawp, just in case something picturesque happened.
