The Queen requires a letter writer, how hard can it be?

I think I might have potential, what do you think?

Dear Boris,
Stop being a c*ck

Fair effort Nutty, but a possibly a little ambiguous, given the intended recipient.

May I suggest:-

Boris,

Resignation on my desk tomorrow, or a one way trip to the Tower.

Your choice.


The Boss

No longer needs to be a fluent Barbadian speaker...

Clearly letter writing doesn't fall into the category of "light duties" for the Queen. Perhaps that is more flicking a feather duster around the drawing room and changing the water for the corgis!

The idea of the Queen, at her age, doing any "duties" at all is ridiculous, the lady should be relaxing at home, and enjoying what time she has left not having to put up with weekly audiences with the PM.

Looking back on a life rich with encounters with so many great statesmen and women, I wonder what Her Majesty thinks of Boris. I rather hope that she finds him more of a trifling amusement, rather than an irritant. Perhaps she tries to improve him.

Really, it's a form of cruelty to impose Boris on a frail lady's short time.

Time for Chuck to relieve her of this particular duty.

if only the Queen could publish a list of her 14 Prime Ministers in order of merit. We know who would be at the bottom of course but the rest would be of some interest.

Indeed. She really must not rate Charles much?

Or perhaps takes keeping promises very seriously.

I find the concept of serious conversation on matters regarding the nation - and indeed the empire - between the heir and BJ a difficult one to grasp. I just cannot take either of them seriously. Probably something to do with encountering the Goon Show early in my formative years and becoming addicted.

For some strange reason, Germaine Greer comes to mind ...

Come to think of it, HRH Prince Charles did a pretty good Goon Show imitation in his yoof...

It may seem strange but HM has a great sense of duty. Her entire life has been dedicated to duty. I have never envied her life nor responsibilities.

Many desire to see an end to the monarchy, and it will probably happen, but I quite like having an apolitical Head of State who has been head and shoulders above any politician of the past 100 years.

That's the problem with hereditary heads of state - ability and statesmanship may not be inherited by future generations.

Why not President William Windsor as a future UK head of state (if he wins sufficient votes)?

+1. And, frankly, although Charles doesn't inspire one greatly, he probably wouldn't do much harm. I'm no royalist but I'd leave things as they are until there is evidence that an elected (and thus, either political or Political) HoS will be better than current arrangements.
