This is a marvellous opportunity to celebrate all things British, and a good moment to stop and marvel at the Best of British.
Here is my alphabetical list of what I think is best about Great Britain, which is, as you will see, sadly short of great British 'I's .
To celebrate the Queen's sixty years on the throne Cabbages & Roses will award a gift voucher worth £100 to the most interesting suggestion of a Great British "I".......you can write your suggestions as a comment on this blog post or on our facebook page.
These are what I think is Great about Britain....
