The Queen wants out of European Union

Queen Elizabeth II has had enough with this European Union nonsense.

When Britain votes in June to exit the union, her majesty will be among those saying hell yeah.

Make Britain Great Again.




From the Sun:
The Queen has been hailed as a backer of Brexit tonight after details emerged of an extraordinary alleged bust-up between her and Nick Clegg over Europe.
Her Majesty let rip at the then Deputy PM during a lunch at Windsor Castle, The Sun has been told.
The 89-year-old monarch firmly told passionate pro-European Mr Clegg that she believed the EU was heading in the wrong direction.
Her stinging reprimand went on for “quite a while”, leaving other guests around the table stunned.
The account of the bombshell lunch during the last government - which a handful of other government ministers also attended - has been relayed to The Sun by a highly reliable source.
The senior source said: “People who heard their conversation were left in no doubt at all about the Queen’s views on European integration.
“It was really something, and it went on for quite a while.
“The EU is clearly something Her Majesty feels passionately about.”
The monarch is also said to have revealed her Eurosceptic feelings during a separate conversation with MPs at a Buckingham Palace reception.
The Palace issued a statement: "The Queen remains politically neutral, as she has for 63 years. We would never comment on spurious, anonymously-sourced claims. The referendum will be a matter for the British people."

A non-denial denial.

  1. Jolly good.

    And Her Majesty is a WWII vet.

    1. Yep, the queen is the only reigning head of state who was a member of her nation's active duty military during World War II. She was on the throne while Stalin was alive. She probably knows a thing or two about Europe that most people don't.

    2. Don't forget that Prince Philip is also a WWII vet. Skippered a destroyer, I believe. Saw combat out of Malta.

    3. IIRC, Prince Henry saw combat in Afghanistan and Prince Andrew in the Falklands. Prince William had military service as did his father. Prince Edward washed out, alas. I think Peter Phillips is the only one of the crew over 18 who did not enlist.

  2. She may be a figurehead, but her head knows how to figure. And does.

  3. Would enjoy being a fly on the wall when the queen discusses this with her pampered, ultra liberal son.

    1. I have news for you: the entire royal family is 'pampered' by most people's standards.

      Prince Charles is somewhat New Age and something of a tree-hugger. No particular reason to believe him 'ultra-liberal' in the Streisand sense.

  4. That chick is the shiznit. She has more brains and class in a molecule on her pinky finger than the whole (large one) of Hillary Clinton. And Harry is an OG badass. I wanna tell her that I love her a lot, but I gotta get a belly full of wine...

  5. If true, that is shocking. The British monarch has stayed out of politics for well over a century.

    1. An aspect of her job is rasining red flags in front of the PM. Tony Blair has said publicly it can be quite useful and her neutrality and discretion make her highly valuable. Some one in the cabinet leaked or manufactured this for their own reasons.

  6. Churchill just ripped the velvet in his casket raising his hand to make a Vee sign.

    1. Why Mr. Churchill, you're drunk!

      Yes, madam, I am. And when I wake tomorrow I will be sober. But you shall still be ugly.

      DJT is chanelling Winnie.

  7. Just as the monarch is the figurehead of the British government, Britain itself serves as the figurehead of the English speaking world. It has a duty to preserve and protect the language and the culture. It cannot do that as an offshore appendage that's subservient to continental Europe.

  8. Good on ya Queen Lizzie!

    I've always liked the Queen. Too bad all of her children are twits. I hope she lives a long time to keep her idiot son Charles off the throne.

    1. Her children aren't twits. Three of the four of them managed to select lousy mates.

    2. No, Charles is not a twit. He's something quite worse and to use the required descriptive language would get this post deleted.

  9. If everyone else is a subject, doesn't that make her an object?

  10. I've heard the Queen speaks her mind in meetings with the PM. I'd hever heard of her doing that in a group meeting. That this is leaking now tells you (1) it actually is spurious or (2) someone in Cameron's cabinet (not likely Cameron himself) wants this known.

    Clegg's party lost 90% of its seats the last election. Good riddance.

  11. Actually, I think she's just trying to counterbalance Chuckles, who has been shooting his mouth off as usual.

  12. Given what we've got in the US, I'm starting to think a constitutional monarchy might not be a bad choice.

    She's obviously smarter than the politicians in her country - and mine.
