This little known and un-elected room-full of toffs - who the other day stripped poor old Fred Goodwin of his knighthood for Services to Wanking - said the Monarch who has presided over sixty years of economic booms and busts had outlived her usefulness and should be killed.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne said it was unpleasant but necessary.
King Harry, reached on a Swiss mountain following the unexpected death of his father and brother in a localized avalanche, said "Yeah! Bring it on."
