Remember in 1997 when Labour wondered if the Queen should be allowed to open parliament ?

Remember the modernising musings of 1997 when Blair and Co wondered via the media if the Queen should even open parliament ? Blair and Cherie walking to the state opening, to help show up the monarch and milk political advantage from it.

What a difference 12 years makes. She's the sole representative of the state from prime minister, through governing party and even the former speaker to emerge with any integrity and honour at all. She is popular and respected, Labour is tired and rejected.

That's why the monarch opens Parliament as the embodiment of our nation, and why our Queen does it so well.

Alas, Cherie gives Scousers a bad name. It is the stupid crassness of that makes me wonder about the Blairs real attitude to ordinary people.

Yes but how does she feel about having to mouth Brown's fantasies?
