“The Queen has voiced her frustration with today’s politicians and their ‘inability to govern correctly’, it has been claimed. The 93-year-old monarch remains scrupulously neutral in public but is said to have told aides of her ‘disappointment in the current political class’. She made the comments in 2016 but her feelings have only intensified since then amid endless political turmoil over Brexit, sources told The Sunday Times. ‘[Her Majesty] expressed her exasperation and frustration about the quality of our political leadership, and that frustration will only have grown,’ one said. Royal aides were said to be surprised by her tone, describing the Queen as ‘really dismayed’ by the state of UK politics.”

  1. The obvious question then becomes “Why does she remain silent?” Is maintaining the custom of the Royal Family remaining silent on political matters worth the destruction of England? (“Britain” is already too diverse, but perhaps England could still be salvaged.) Is the Royal Family still relevant? or is it simply a quaint tourist attraction?

    One answer may be that the Queen knows that whoever the crown is passed to next is going to be a Leftist loon and she doesn’t want to establish a precedent that would give them a political voice. No matter how you look at it, the future looks bleak.

    1. I wish, Stephen – oh, how I wish! – that I had a good answer to this. All I can say is to agree with you, that the future (at least in the near-term) looks bleak.

      I might be tempted to despair, did I not recall my dear late mother’s frequent reminder: God is still in charge.
