Our Political World Turned Upside Down

The Queen consults with the Governor of the Bank of England, consults with advisers and senior state officials; the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and the Treasury consult with the Governor in drawing up a Budget that recognizes the condition our economy is reduced to. The lateness of the Budget, deliberately delayed until after the G20 meetings, causes further wobbles in confidence because it is known that the delay was to gain political propaganda for further out-of-control government spending masquerading as a respectable and international policy. A State visit to Dubai has been postponed and the Queen remains in London.

Meanwhile, while the Head of State co-ordinates government in our country, the Prime Minister and his consort are away, on their own do-it-yourself state visit - to Europe, to America north and south. Flying the flag for what? In whose name? On whose authority?

A coup d'etat by HM the Q and the Governor would be very droll. She could appoint Darling as acting PM while an election was held. Sweet dreams.

To be sober for a moment: 12 years of Blair/Brown government has so rotted our democracy that we can now joke about a Royal rescue. Bloody Hell.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

My thoughts dearieme, has Mervyn King in effect led a coup d'etat ?
A coup de grâce would have been preferable and is perhaps still possible.
