    Lol, there's a thread like this running in most forums. They usually end in virtual fisticuffs.

    It's the Media just stirring it as always.......The Queen just wants a quiet life, wouldn't anyone at the age of 82?

    i would guess she probably has a publicity dept who have dreamed this story up .problem is i dont think the general public will swallow such a story anymore without questioning it .

    I don't balme the Queen but her 'Advisors'.



    In the current climate, where people are struggling with food and fuel prices, maybe to have said nothing would have been wiser..............................

    I think we ought to get a trust going at Coutts as happened when Windsor Castle went up in smoke.

    Although I'm only an impecunious passerine, I'm prepared to start the ball rolling with the following:-

    A hazel-nut that not even my mate Rookie can open

    Something which might be meat, that a picknicker threw at me the other day

    A shiny tin lid that I was saving as an heirloom

    Perhaps all the foreign tourists, who are always cited as a good reason to retain the monarchy, would care to cough up.

    Isn't this a bit of a personal thing to be asking about her Majesty? At her age?



    Oh!



    Hard up.
