My jubilee heroes: Never mind the right-on BBC list - here are 60 truly great 'Elizabethans' By Max Hastings Published: 23:19 GMT, 24 May 2012 | Updated: 11:43 GMT, 25 May 2012 The BBC has set out to choose 60 people who have influenced the Queen's long reign - but who is truly worthy of inclusion?

My jubilee heroes: Never mind the right-on BBC list - here are 60 truly great 'Elizabethans'

This week in the Mail, I described how I writhed and wriggled as an oft-outvoted member of the BBC’s panel to choose 60 ‘New Elizabethans’ to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. This prompted the obvious question: who would be on my personal list of people who have most ‘influenced the reign for better or worse’ since 1953? For a start, my rules for admission would have been quite different from the BBC’s. The BBC originally intended its list should be those people who have ‘illuminated’ the Queen’s reign. I am sure that when another such list is compiled a generation hence, many more women will appear, because they now play a far more prominent role in our society.

Titel) Für die Untertanen der englischen Krone war die Frage fast wichtiger und interessanter als der Revanchekampf Turpin-Robinson: Prinzessin Margaret Rose hatte zu ihrem 21. Geburtstag von ihren Eltern einen eigenen Sportwagen angeboten bekommen. Als dankbare Tochter nahm Margaret an, aber, sagte sie, es müsse schon ein schnittiger, schneller Bentley sein. Indignation am Hof: Seit Menschengedenken fährt die Königsfamilie nur Daimler. Margaret blieb eigensinnig bei ihrem Wunsch. Im Vereinigten Königreich konstatierten sämtliche Eltern mit extravaganten jungen Töchtern die elterliche Autorität im Herrscherhaus mit Befriedigung.

Nach einigen Wochen bei ihrem schwer lungenkranken Vater auf Ferien-Schloß Balmoral, zusammen mit Bräutigam in spe Billy Wallace, begibt sich Margaret Rose jetzt zurück nach London in ihre endlose, erschöpfende Runde sozialer Verpflichtungen. Die Zeitungen schreiben über fast jede Gesellschaft, die sie besucht. "Ich tue es schon, Madame", stammelte er.

One undeniable trend is that people are working longer. The number of people working past retirement age has almost doubled in the last 20 years. According to the Office for National Statistics those working past state pension age, 65 for men and 61 for women, are more than twice as likely to be working part time as the general population. There are now more than 1.4 million workers in employment beyond retirement age and over 60% of these are women.
