It is not nice to be ruled, as we Britons are, by someone like Elizabeth Windsor with as much brains as her lap dogs. I don't want to fight or to die for Queen and Corgi and neither should any Briton be asked to.Now if Condi was Queen Condoleezza and Buckingham Palace was her residence that would be different and better maybe but we ought to assert democratic republican principles always.Don't you agree dear reader?
