He read my speech brilliantly.

I'll have to go and watch that whole concert again now. It was The a triumph of a great tradition concert held in Liverpool on 4 July 2015 when QM2 arrived to mark the 175th anniversary of Britannia.

Were you actually just trying to make him shed a tear?  I think you nearly managed!

Well I did actually make him shed a tear at the concerts in 2007 and 2008. He actually couldn't finish One of them and didn't read the final few sentences.

At the 2008 Liverpool Concert he wasnt the only one to she a tear  :'( What was said was cruel but oh so very true and a masterpeice of PR ..but then, we had come to expect nothing less.
As for the" Time to say Goodbye " tune, if i never hear that again l honestly wouldnt mind !
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

Internally, 'Time to Say Goodbye' was referred to 'Time to Say Dubai' after hearing it so much....
