    Won’t ‘let’ her? What, now? She could abdicate if she so chose. She’s obviously loving it.

    “The only thing known to go faster than ordinary light is monarchy, according to the philosopher Ly Tin Wheedle. He reasoned like this: you can’t have more than one king, and tradition demands that there is no gap between kings, so when a king dies the succession must therefore pass to the heir instantaneously. Presumably, he said, there must be some elementary particles — kingons, or possibly queons — that do this job, but of course succession sometimes fails if, in mid-flight, they strike an anti-particle, or republicon. His ambitious plans to use his discovery to send messages, involving the careful torturing of a small king in order to modulate the signal, were never fully expanded because, at that point, the bar closed.”

      Jeez you’re desperate with your inferiority complex lad.
      That articles is four years old. An untrained gibbon could Google something more relevant than that.
      Back to the barstool in the Wolfe Tones Arms for you dear boy.

        The request for funding happened in 2004. I came across the story recently.
        I am not an untrained gibbon sitting on a bar stool in the Wolfe Tone Arms. As far as i’m aware.

          So you’re ten years late to the party.
          The Old Gal brings in far more the British economy than she takes out of it.

            The fact that they requested the funds 10 years ago; I don’t think that matters.
            You have to admit, the request is striking.
            You’ll have to elaborate more on your ‘she brings in more than she takes away’ argument to convince me, particularly in relation to the poor people referred to in the article.

    Congratulation on Her Majesty The Queen for 63 glorious years.She’s a beacon of all that’s right and proper in a world mired in ill-manners and a lack of couth.
    I’m sure Pat the Laughing Fishmonger in Cork’s English Market will come up with a better ditty than this amateurish effort.
    Huzzah !

    The British monarchy was at risk of collapse before her oul lad stepped in, got voice-training etc.
    I mean no ill-will to the well-cushioned parasites but I wish it had been obliterated (peacefully), alike some of its European cousins, and replaced by a fairer, modern Republic.

      Old Blighty seems to work pretty well as a constitutional monarchy don’t you think ?
      I mean if you compare it to say somewhere like the cess-pool that is the French Republic.
      I reckon Brenda has got much to be proud of today and I hope she has a few Gin and Dubonnets to celebrate her great day.

      A republic wouldn’t be any fairer. Its the same thing. The poshos would stay rich and posh and at the top, augmented with the newly rich and oligarchs and the poor would stay poor. At least we get some days off when stuff happens to them and they bring in tourist money.

        They help make London the most visited city on Earth.
        You’ve only got to stand outside Buck House ANY day of the week to see them in their gazillions.
        All Dublin has to offer is the Guinness Storehouse and junkies shooting up on the street.
