Westminster Abbey

Some early reactions to the proposals made by the Dean of Westminster to add a corona to the Abbey, in connection with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2013; see the Times report, and material on the Abbey’s own site.

So far the reactions have been predictable: that money shouldn’t be spent on frivolities while anyone is still homeless (see comment on the Times article); that it should be left as it is (editorials and columns in the Guardian and the Evening Standard.) I anticipate further wrangles about style when the competition to design it begins.
