Just once, your Majesty. Let the wankers have it.

The royals are a tourist attraction.

"Sod off, swampies."

rehajm said...

Funny because of the juxtaposition of royal formality with British slang. We are mildly amused...

One of xis other tweets apropos for Althousian sensibilities:

“Hello, I’m The Black Rod.”

“No, you don’t say ‘The Black Rod’ it’s just ‘Black Rod’.”

“That seems a bit stupid.”

“Listen, hen, there’s 12 cunts in panto costumes doing synchronised picking shit up over there. A missing definite article is the fucking least of our problems.”

Heh. Labour Party hardest hit.

traditionalguy said...

She looks younger lately. But the Brits still need to rebrand with Good Queen Kate.

mockturtle said...

I'd wager these are her true sentiments. She has no illusions about the state and future of the Monarchy.

Fernandistein said...

Gosh darn that Magma Carda!

mockturtle said...

Agree, tradguy. Charles must abdicate in favor of William for the Monarchy to have any chance of symbolic relevance.

This Max guy seems nice.

Not so fast. It's Queen Camilla's turn first.

The Brits love to use the word "cunt". Too bad so many Brits are wankers. Some are in favor of Brexit and patriotic but then you have left-wing narrow shouldered, limp wristed effeminate s like Corbyn. Talk about a disgusting Cunt. I'm not a fan of the US Lefties, but they're macho men and patriots compared to the English Lefties.

I think that the shark has been jumped.

Give us Queen Meghan, you raciss beeyotch!

Back to Krautland with that lot. Windsors my arse.

The great thing about that tweets is that there's no way H. M. The Queen would ever utter those words, but deep down you know she's thinking it the whole time!

“The typical Socialist is not, as tremulous old ladies imagine, a ferocious-looking working man with greasy overalls and a raucous voice. He is either a youthful snob-Bolshevik who in five years’ time will quite probably have made a wealthy marriage and been converted to Roman Catholicism; or, still more typically, a prim little man with a white-collar job, usually a secret teetotaller and often with vegetarian leanings, with a history of Nonconformity behind him, and, above all, with a social position which he has no intention of forfeiting.”

George Orwell

JAORE said...

I should fucking behead the lot of you.

Like the punchline to an old joke: "A good start".

Paul said...

Sounds like a episode of Pennyworth.

tcrosse said...

So now they let Phillip write her speech.

But I don't think Katie is next in line; rather it's Charlie, isn't it?

GOD, in his Infinite Wisdom and Charity; GAVE the Britons a divine King, who was Perfect in Every Way (and Scottish, Obviously). And the GOD DAMNED ENGLISH chopped off his head!
Then after having a few years of sense, and obeying Charles' son; they REFUSED to LISTEN TO GOD, and blindly follow Charles' other son, James VII
And, INSTEAD; USURPED him! First with some Dutch guy that tried to marry his way into the family
THEN with some GERMAN
A GERMAN? Briton has debased herself and bows down. . . TO GERMANS!!!

Leland said...

I'm glad she's listened to her people and still supports Brexit.

The Cracker Emcee Refulgent said...

Funny, Dr. K. I was reading that passage just last night. And I was struck, as he described the Socialist enthusiasm for imposing top-down solutions and how it inevitably strayed into fascism, how exactly he had the number of our current crop of Prog goose-steppers.

Wish she had stopped to slap the PM.

Marc said...

Speculation I saw, browsing through the media in the UK this morning, was to the effect that perhaps the Queen was admitting to a certain 93 year old's weakness by wearing the George IV diadem rather than the (significantly heavier) Imperial State Crown. But I thought she sounded quite hale delivering that nonsense of a speech, although I only listened to five minutes of it.

God save England if the worst should happen while the politicians are still fussing over Brexit!

Clyde said...

Gilbar, where do you think the Angles and the Saxons came from? Everyone who isn't a Celt came from Germany millenia before.

Tina Trent said...

The "c" word doesn't violate Twitter's rules on "hate speech."

But you will be banned if you say that transvestites are not really women.

So only women without c***s are to be protected from misogyny.

Got it. Hate crime laws work that way too. Whenever they find a dead transvestite, the first question the specialists ask is whether the killer was targeting a transvestite or just wanted to kill a woman. Because the latter isn't hate.

Other than Saint Andrew of the broken cross, I don't think there are any other Protestant saints other than Saint Cromwell. OTOH, military dictatorship, OTO, regicide. You decide.

ken in tx said...

Many United Methodist churches are named after Saints. St John and St Mathew are the ones that come to mind. As noted, St Andrews is usually a Presbyterian church name.

ken in tx said...

The Broken Cross is what the Nazis called their swastika--Das Haken Cross. That is not the Cross of St Andrews.

Narr said...

ken in tx is correct-- I don't know about 'broken cross' (I know 'hooked cross') but the St. Andrew is just X instead of + .

We got St Luke and St Mark UMCs here.
