image for Queen Alters Queen's Speech
The Queen Speaks Out!

In a move that has put the constitutional cat among the pigeons, the Queen has altered the speech she is going give to the House of Commons outling 'her Government's' programme.

In a passage aboloshing the hereditary element from the House of Lords, the Queen has amended the wording to include 'but no me'. Thus the wording will be:

'My Government will abolish the hereditary element from the House of Lords, but not me.'

Ebenezer Scroope, the expert on all matters concerning the Queen, declared that it was about time 'The Queen said what she thinks. It has been a travesty for generations that the Monarch has had to agree to the most stupid legislation but you can hardly ask the Monarch to abolish themselves.'

This issue brings to the fore the contradiction between ending the inherited rights of those going to the House of Lords whilst keeping them for the Monarch.

'You can do it for Charlie if you like' the Queen told 'her Government' 'but my position is not to be altered!'

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
