Tim Elliott considered it funny when last week he ridiculed The Queen’s Christmas message in a “pre”-review published in The Age’s Green Guide (=TV guide): “She switches on, tunes in and says pretty much exactly what she has said for the past 50 years.”
This week’s edition of the Green Guide published two responses:
Monarch’s moving message
Tim Elliott (Critic’s view, Saturday 23rd December) could not have been more wrong when he predicted the Queen’s message would be another boring round-up of the past year. Instead, the message described and encouraged sport as a force for peace and a stronger community.

You media people just don’t get it when it comes to the Queen. A lot of us look foward to the Queen’s message on Christmas Day and we find your snide remarks offensive.
