I won’t be joining the queue to see the Queen’s coffin because, unlike most English people it seems, I have no urge to join a queue if I see one, but always walk away from them.
But it is allegedly the longest queue in the world and can take 24 hours to reach the end. This is badly organised. A company called Accesso (ACSO) has a product called Lo-Queue that eliminates physical queues by providing a virtual queue. It advises you when you have reached the end of the line and should turn up to access the venue.
Queues can also be managed by rationing. One way is simply to charge a fee for access, with busy times requiring a higher fee. A charge in this case could have been used to support the Queen’s favourite charities or to support the enormous heating bills of Buckingham Palace. Business opportunities have been missed!
