After several delays, the Queen’s speech has taken place. But all was not as it should be. As a clearly ‘not amused’ Queen gave the impression that she wasn’t signing in a ‘government’ so much as a ‘govermess’.
Are we on?
The Queen turned up to her speech wearing a shell suit and smoking a roll-up cigarette.
“Are you filming?” the Queen asked a cameraman, as she flicked her fag into a bin full of Tory manifestos. “Because one is due down the bingo in 20 minutes”.
The Queen was informed that the cameras were indeed rolling, and so she had a go at the speech:
There seem to be several pages missing? Had trouble running some of these ideas past the public, did we? Well, let’s see what else you’ve got.
Okay, so it says here that you want to carry on making things… ‘better’… for ordinary people… Is that a typo? No? So it shouldn’t say ‘worse’ then?
Well I must say that you people have an inflated opinion of yourselves. And that’s coming from a woman whose face is on the £50 note!
What else is in here? Okay, so it says that you’ve cancelled my speech next year. What a shame. I was really looking forward to serving up whatever dog’s dinner you had on the 2018 menu. Maybe you could go into coalition with Foot and Mouth disease, or elect the woman who put a cat in a bin as your new leader?
Anyway, if that’s it, I’m off!
The job complete, her Majesty proceeded to light another cigarette, shake her head at Theresa May, and then ride off to Mecca Bingo on her royal ostrich.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
