Cool Britannia ! Diamond Jubilee and Olympics souvenirs roundup

The Union Jack has always been an iconic symbol that has been big business for interior designers, clothing manufacturers, household objects and everything in between, but with this year seeing not only the London 2012 Olympic Games but also the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, the shops are absolutely bursting with all things British-themed. I thought I'd give you a quick overview of all the "Cool Britannia" merchandise that we've tried out recently or that we've reviewed in the past here at The Madhouse. I'll add more to this list as it comes through as I'm sure there will be more Team GB products arriving over the coming months !
