Quote: Why not, is she only Queen of England?

No, of course not. But Scotland would then no longer be a part of the United Kingdom...

But the Queen would still be the Queen of Scotland. It's the monarchy that dishes out Honours, not Westminster.

Quote: I think we can all choose to talk about what we wish, when we wish and not necessarily what any person considers the most serious issues of the day ... Life would be intolerably boring otherwise.

Absolutely - and by the same token, we can all choose to express our annoyance at silly comments or overkill on a subject (not necessarily your comments).
That said, I enjoyed the documentary programme last night about Andy Murray and I think this thread would benefit from emphasising Andy's strength and determination rather than his weaknesses. He seems to be a decent, sensitive soul - and any flaws he has or had - he seems to be dealing with pretty effectively.
I think he's a good role model for kids and that seems to be an achievement that he is trying to maintain. Smile

Not strictly true. Only the Order of the Garter (I think) is in the gift of the monarch. For everything else, it's down to the Civil Service to put together a list which the monarch then has to approve.

I must make clear......that I have nothing against the man a all........my grouse was with all the repetitive repetitive repetitive hype surrounding him, I still don't think a Knighthood for patting a ball back and forth is in order......The knights of old will be turning in their graves......Now I guess there will be an absolute glut of advertising ......Anyone for Murray .....Ball Cleaner

I never understood what was wrong with his "Anyone but England" comment, it is exactly the same answer I give when asked about the football and I'm English.
as soon as England get knocked out of any competition the ridiculous hype stops and the telly goes back to normal Smile

That's not fair, she should have to reapply for the job. At least they should re-advertise the position.

To be properly democratic, there should be a second referendum: re-instate the Scottish royal line (there must be some living descendants of James VI, surely?), stay in the commonwealth or become a republic.

Nah, lets do it the traditional way: Whoever murders everyone else who has a claim to the throne gets it.

She had a 'fling' with Sid James, not King James. Easy mistake to make, tho'... Wink
