I didn't cry until the whole stadium joined in with Beverly Knight ( who had a great pair of lungs by the way)
with the adopted gay anthem of "I am what I am!"
Ian Mc Kellen had a lovely time ( bless him) ......as did ( I hope) the star of the whole ceremony, Steven Hawking who turned up so much I am sure the batteries on his electric wheelchair were down to nothing!
A lovely chap I used to know from Sheffield's Spinal Unit read the Judge's oath and Claire Balding did her usual top notch commentary, this time for Channel 4.....
Loved it all..... thought provoking....... celebratory...... and generally very entertainingBritain has done both ceremonies proud
PS The natural enthusiasm of signer Deepa Shastri made me smile as blind soprano Denise Leigh belted out something worthy!
