Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of the Queen's accession to the throne (or the 50th anniversary of the death of George VI, depending which way you look at it).
I don't think that people were expected to have street parties yesterday (it is early February, after all...)
All that kind of stuff will happen in June, when we have the extended bank holiday weekend.
There's going to be a <a href="http://dswark.org/cathedral/jubilee.htm">big event in Borough Market
</a>, as part of Southwark's contribution to the festivities.
