So a nice old lady had a trip on a boat down the Thames. REJOICE!!!!
Ok, i am writing this at about 4am in the morning ( so apologies for any mistakes/typos). While the Queen/Royal family have about 80% support in the country (lets face it any politician would dream of that poll rating), The Queen has no direct power, in fact her role is ceremonial, Her Majesty is not elected nor stands on a manifesto, In fact when you look at it The Queen has lived her life in a goldfish bowl, no freedom to have her own life, Hell she cant even do the things that most kids done.
The problem i have is that the Queen and monarchy is against my beliefs, Yet my heart has respect for the Queen. In Her Majesty 60 years she has seen many PM`s Presidents, Kings and other dictators. Yet when i see the Queen on my screen my heart melts, the service she has shown is second to none.
Plus there are the many Prince Phillip gaffs.
The more i write this post, the more i think, Do i want a President Blair? Or President Blair?, No i don't, they have caused their damage (i suggest a lot less than the Queen). This throws into thought about whether to have a parliament where we get plastic politicians ( and God forbid we do this in second chamber) or a ruled by monarchy or ruled by ourselves?
Anyway until i resolve this question i say this:
God save the Queen
