General disgust that MPs get a pass to jump the queue.

Yeah yeah, I saw you pushing in at the front for a gander at a dead old woman in a fancy box. "Wasn't aware there was a queue" pull the other 1 m8
I have a colleague who went down yesterday, on her day off, to have a gander at the dead queen. Not saying I’m not aware a lot of people are going, but I had no idea people were queuing for hours. I didn’t ask said colleague about it.
A bit churlish

It's not a considered, deliberate, step by step logical process where people say "well I won't be angry at this particular thing because I think you'll find in Article 6 of the Convention of Succession there is actually a sub clause that clearly delineates between properties owned by the Crown and properties appropriated by the Crown and actually I think you'll find that that ought to reassure you that there are actually provisions in place" because they'll be too busy setting fire to sh.t.
That's the same sentiment that, when MPs have it they say they have had enough of experts, so they just go with their prejudices.

Seems fair, shame it takes 11.5 hours to get there.

This queue.

Time to get the professionals in. Disneyland and Alton Towers.

They know the answer. Increase the capacity of the ride via multiplying the product.

20 queen boxes, not one.

Important that every experience is identical, all 20 attractions having soldiers and crowns and candles and all that stuff. Visitors must be unable to tell apart the one with the actual queen hidden inside a box. Each customer must experince exactly what they currently experience.

Should get the queue down to an hour.

Here's a survey on why people are queuing for the show.

All these motivations are satisfied by my multiple body-box solution. Customers will get the same experience, plus won't be too exhausted to browse the gift shop on the way out.

At the end, Noel Edmunds could reveal which is the real Queen box.

Let people change queue based on their various "systems". For a reasonable processing fee.

Alternatively, the Catholic church might have a system to enable large numbers of people to make a pilgrimage to parts of a famous corpse. And they're f.cking coining it, even more than Disneyworld.

No need to have fake Queens. The church solved the problem years ago by having people worship different bits of saints in different places.

Too low mps is root of the problem (mourners per second).

80 mps solution:

It's not very CofE but you don't necessarily need actual bits to worship in different places. Could have bits of bread represent the body? Or for a modern 21st century update - some other food?

I like that idea.

Everyone likes Nando’s. How about we all eat some in remembrance of her. Maybe collectively in a big room on Sundays.
