News Item:  The Queen's speech on Wednesday to both Houses of Parliament in the
UK traditionally outlines the government's agenda.

You know, she's so nice to us.

Yes, we sit by her and follow her around.

But, she is becoming frail.

I know, that's why it's so awful of those Westminster politicians to drag her around.

Exactly.  What's the point of the cartoon show?

Plonking a crown on her head in the House of Lords and supposedly ordering the
Prime Minister and the Commons to attend.

And everyone knows the Prime Minister wrote the speech and she ordered the
Queen to give it on Wednesday.

Yes, everyone knows but no one says it.

Poor old dear.  She does it like the good soldier she has been throughout her life.

Yes, she puts on the farce of what she is asking her government to do ...

All the time wishing she was home with us.

Probably.  And she loves a good cup of tea.

You know, it would be funny if she said what she actually had in mind.

You mean like, "you stupid idiots, why can't you run a country without one disaster
after another".

Yes, and you wouldn't have all these people running each other over with vans and
cars if the stupid government would stop meddling in other countries.

And stop being so greedy.

That's one thing she's never been.

That's why she's lived to 91 ...

And going strong.
