A yacht for the Queen.

The Mail hilariously pushed for this the other month. Now Gove has backed it, to the tune of £60m. The Guardian has the exclusive. From a private letter to the Culture Secretary:

My suggestion would be a gift from the nation to her majesty; thinking about David Willetts’s excellent suggestion of a royal yacht, and something tangible to commemorate this momentous occasion… The year ahead provides an enormous opportunity to showcase the very best of Britain.

Stunning.
