The Queen has decided to intervene in the Brexit debate. She didn’t mention the B word itself, but she did talk about “common ground” and respecting “different points of view”. This prompted big thinkers on either side of the debate to reply:
Shove it up yer arse!
It also saw some ponder:
Is this the same monarch who can’t even stop her suitor terrorising the countryside in his Land Rover?
One is not amused
A source close to the Queen says she’s been trying to ‘Brexit’ Philip from his car. The problem is Philip wants to stop driving while maintaining all the benefits of being a driver. They suggested he could just use one of the several hundred chauffeurs they employ, but Philip shot back:
Where’s the bloody fun in that? The wretched car monkeys won’t even pull out into traffic when I bark orders at them! And one of them was from the fucking north!
Negotiations with Philip are ongoing. At least they are right up until the point when he drives off, anyway.
The recent saga of Prince Philip vs the Highway Code will be portrayed in the new season of Netflix’s The Crown. Originally, they booked Kathy Burke to play the Queen (with the aid of prosthetics). Burke refused to read out the lines as written, however, instead shouting things like:
Stop driving around that twat-wagon you stupid, old cunt.
I threw your driving gloves in the bin you horrible fucking skeleton; you’ll be in there with them if you don’t stop taking the piss.
We should have hung the bastards – just like the French did.
Burke claims this last quote was misleading – saying she’d actually been talking about tapestries. She went on to explain her preferred method of execution would have been “just twatting them with whatever came to hand”.
Although Burke has been let go from The Crown, there are hopes she may help out with the Brexit negotiations. She probably won’t have a fix, but she will swear at all the right people, at least.
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.
