Didn't she just open Parliament? I'm waiting for the day when she opens the pouch, glances quickly at the speech, turns to the prime minister, and says, "you are a simple-minded little ****, aren't you." I'd pay good money to see that.

Her Maj? When you think of some of the P.M.'s and the guff she has had to read out. I'm really surprised she's never given in to the temptation to call in the Lifeguards and redecorate the palace of Westminster with human heads?

The entertainment value in her howling "off with their heads!" Would be unlimited.

But back to Gibbo. I would not suggest for a moment that Zanuck actually rogered him himself.

But, I can imagine a scene that goes something like this.

ZANUCK: Ok, Mel. Thanks for the moving and heartfelt apology. Now. See the porcupine?

GIBBO: Yes. It's a fine specimen.

ZANUCK:: It is Mel. It is. @@@@ the porcupine, Mel.

GIBBO: Excuse me?

ZANUCK: The porcupine? Trousers off kneel down and pleasure my porcupine, Mel. If you want to work in this town again your going to @@@@ the @@@@ off the porcupine.

Would not say that.it depends which British you are talking about. The term "British" summarises multitudes of attitudes , personalities and opinions, just as the term "Americans"does.

Has anyone ever seen her roll her eyes upon opening the pouch? Has she ever dressed down a PM in private? You've got to admire her self-discipline.

How about "Pommie Bastard"? Does that term also cover a wide range of divergent views?

We'll never know but I suspect that she has enough experience to do the job with some subtlety and still leave the recipient feeling that he's had a right royal rollicking. I think a couple (Our 'Arold and Greasy Tone) would be relatively immune though. Prince P of course would leave no doubt but it isn't his job.

I read once that she called Winston Churchill in during his last term as PM and "suggested" to him that if he was not up to performing his job properly he should step down and let someone else have a go. To such a worshiper of the Royal Family, that had to hurt!

"Pommie Bastard" is usually meant as a term of affection these days. Even the present Prime Minister- born in London- has not attracted such an epithet.

(Well, "bastard " maybe, depending on what your politics are).

If you look into the Royal Family Tree (especially the Spencers), you will note a number of "bastards". Some from the Royal Family. Charles II was notorious for leaving dozens of bastards but no direct royal heir. To name a few families with a bastard back there, Bowes-Lyon, Parker, Spencer. A little outside genes would probably do the Royal Line some good.

Just about every British King has listed some bastards in his will. I don't recall any mentioned in the last two. The Hanovers certainly left a bunch!

Allegedly, if the Queen likes a P.M. then once a week when he or she comes to the palace to explain how they have run the country that week then they sit in comfy armchairs and have tea and biscuits.

If she doesn't like them then her majesty sits at her desk and the P.M. stands for the duration of the interview.

I am told she gets a copy of the Queens Speech about a week before the ceremony so she has time to practice her expressionless face. Having said that I have a suspicion that if she wasn't a ruling monarch she'd make a damp good poker player.

Often wondered how HM would react to various US presidents were they to have regular meetings (perhaps in some alternative history). With Ike I can image a cordial but very formal meeting, how she would react to JFK I cannot imagine. She might find LBJ a bit coarse. With Nixon there would be a certain iciness I suspect especially post Watergate. She'd probably wouldn't get much out of Ford and might find Jimmy Carter over familiar. Regan I think she should be able to have a laugh with. Bush senior she might consider a bit stiff. With Clinton I think she might adopt a more in sorrow than in anger attitude, especially post the Lewinsky scandal. With Bush Junior I image she'd speak quite slowly and in simple terms and with Obama I think she'd be back to cordial but formal. But others may (all most certainly will) think differently
