Much speculation about who’s in #TheQueue and why, but little evidence. That is, until a doughty band of @uniessexgovt researchers began a survey (using the kinds of methods developed for studying protests). Survey ongoing but here are snippets based on the first 300 responses. First, @ReicherStephen (theguardian.com/commentisfree/…) is right about the multiple motivations for attending. Being there at a historic moment was as important as Queen-specific motivations, and things like "feel part of a wider group" were given 6/6 importance by plenty of queuers. Image
