    Default Dead Queen Mother and the EU

    Queen Mother said:
    "'It [EEC] will never work, you know,' she declared, using the already long out-of-date term the EEC. 'It will never work with all those Huns, Wops and Dagos.'

    Picture of Queen Mother with Huns.
    I watched with glee, while your kings and queens, fought for ten decades for the gods they made.

    There's very few English women of her generation who wouldn't think the same.
    Never let the best be the enemy of the good.

    I find such a statement by her ironic in the extreme, since she married into one of the most multicultural famillies in history!

    Those three nations were fascist murder-machines in her lifetime. She was a product of her time. I have no doubt she was a bigot (including against us Irish), but then so were many...

    Thank God Andy relies on the ramblings of a drunken layabout as his political guru.

    I'm not so sure, she was keen on her nags, many of which she sourced through an Irish dealer.
