THE QUEEN has marked today’s momentous royal anniversary with a remarkable statement of her own.
She looked back to the moment 70 years ago when she first became Queen and forward to the next generation that will follow her.

But this is a day to celebrate the towering achievement of our longest-serving monarch.
Her Majesty’s words were emotional but humble: ‘’I would like to express my thanks to you all for your support.’’
It’s nothing compared to the support you’ve given this nation, Ma’am.
Happy 70th anniversary… now let’s have a great party in June.

Voters’ stark message
THE public is in no mood to forgive lockdown parties in Downing Street.
That’s the stark message of our devastating poll today, which shows Boris Johnson’s credibility has taken a hammering.
Our poll shows that the public are in no mood to forgive the PM for Partygate and his credibility has taken a hammering[/caption]
More than 80 per cent say they have lost trust in the PM over Partygate.
And well over half want him to quit now, even before the police probe is complete.
Voters have even discounted his successes, from getting Brexit done to the record vaccine rollout.
But Sir Keir Starmer can’t take much comfort either.
With the Government on the ropes after weeks of chaos, the Labour leader’s standing is a pathetic -5.
And despite rising bills the public STILL trusts Boris and Chancellor Rishi Sunak more on the economy than Labour.
The poll shows the overwhelming priority for voters is the cost of living crisis rather than Boris swigging beer in No10.
This is the crisis Boris must tackle if he is to have any chance of clinging on.
He should start by scrapping VAT on energy bills, axing Ed Miliband’s green levies and ditching the NI hike.
The only way to win back voters now is through their pockets.
Back to your desks!
THE Treasury’s buildings cost us £20million a year to upkeep.
Yet, as our pictures show, they are lying empty while thousands of civil servants work from home.
The entire cost of keeping the government’s offices running adds up to a staggering £1billion a year.
Will the desks ever be filled?
Or are hard-up taxpayers expected to subsidise these empty offices for ever so civil servants can sit on their Peloton bikes rather than endure the daily commute?
