What was that?!?!?!?
Order of the British Empire?
Not bloody likely!!!
My dictionary tells me that an Empire's sovereign has the rank of Emperor or Empress. It also tells me that this rank is higher than the rank King or Queen.
So if wee Lizzie von Battenberg, nee Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, wants to hand out OBE's MBE's and CME's, then she must be saying that there is an Empire and that she is an Empress. Either that or these gongs have been awarded by an usurper and therefore they are worth zip...
Is this Empire by stealth?
Is this a Clayton's Empire?
And didn't I read somewhere that the lineage of British regents has actually been illegal ever since Henry Bolingbroke (Henry IV) usurped the throne in 1399?
Now we've got one who reckons there's an empire and that she's an empress?
The hubris!!! The hubris!!!
Bloody Pommie upstarts !!!
Seeya all in Gitmo...
