QUEEN 'furious at being misled by Theresa May over DUP deal'

   Suffering Pole Cats ...    Surely this deluded, Privileged Palace Mob, don't think they run the UK Government/ Commonwealth.
A 91 year old ROYAL laying down the law about not being updated before public announcements on Government matters.

Hanging by a thread now ,      Only needs Parkyourbowels to become Queen and Gonsky.

She is still a great lady but doesn't have any say in Government.

Tremendous tourist attraction and the likes of William, Kate & family, ready made, to carry on the wonderful tradition & good work,   BUT keep the nose out of Government.

I agree, she can't appear to wield influence, let alone have any.

Why ?

I think it's about time she started chopping heads off again.

Doesn't she still have to invite the winning party in an election to form a government rather than a leader announcing it?

What if Julia had announced her intention to form govt without invitation from the Governor General?

I can only imagine the faux outrage from the right here.

It is just protocol maxie.

Did they ever get the rules set in stone in a Constitution type rule book over there? I know Tony Blair did a lot of reforms with the House of Lords but I'm not sure if he ever got into the role of the monarchy.

The British royal family stayed around because they gradually ceded all their power to the Parliament from Charles the second onward. But I'm not sure if it was ever formalised in any way.

If not there'd be nothing to stop the Queen marching into Westminster tomorrow and saying bugger off the lot of you I don't like you. Or when a newly elected Prime Minister presented their credentials the Queen saying Go away you're an idiot!

I also think all the British armed forces still swear allegiance to the Queen not the Government. Let's hope Elizabeth Windsor doesn't turn radical!

Yes.
&            NO to Royals making any Government decisions.

The stink was over Teresa May telling The Queen some deal had been done regarding Brexit , when in fact, it wasn't signed ,sealed & delivered.

Silly old Cow ,   her gone troppo.

I recall when the Fiji coup happened, and the democratically elected, but ousted PM went to the Queen. She refused to see him.

Not too worried maxie. Harry is slipping further down the list with each sprog Willie pumps out

After him flashing his tockley in Las Vegas, there is no moral high ground to claim anyway

Careful PT.

I have you as our next PM on another thread.   You may be required to kneel in front of one of them.

The trouble with actresses, is you never know where the acting ends, or starts.

They are easily confused with all the BS ,   protocol etc.

Remember poor Charles rambling on when giving a speech about "the date he was knighted."

He lost the lines and described "The night he was dated".
