Queen's Dissatisfaction with New Government Rises
In the "free" British media nothing appears for no reason. Therefore, the Sunday Times message immediately picked up by the other newspapers produced the effect of an exploding bomb: Furious Queen is' dismayed at her politicians' inability to govern correctly '.
This statement was made in a private conversation at a private event after the resignation of the leader of the Conservative Party, British Prime Minister David Cameron back in 2016. It was caused by attempts by members of parliament to drag the queen into resolving the crisis over Britain's exit from the European Union. Referring to an unnamed, but “impeccable” source, the most authoritative newspaper in Britain claims that since then the monarch’s disappointment in the ruling political class has only increased against the backdrop of the “crisis around Brexit that has escalated.”
Who provoked the queen?
It is noteworthy that the Queen’s sharp statement of not the first freshness was made public in connection with the appearance in Britain of a new prime minister who intended to withdraw the country from the EU at any cost by October 31 of this year, despite the catastrophic consequences of this in the short and medium term.
This happened in the midst of a deep split in British society and parliament, as well as the likelihood of Prime Minister Johnson getting a vote of no confidence when the House of Commons, where the Tories do not have a majority on this issue, will soon return from vacation.
It was actually a “roar of a lion”, which was finally “pissed off” by the frivolous inhabitants of the British political jungle, threatening to destroy the country.
It is clear that this statement is directed primarily against the politician who said before that he would refuse to leave his post if the House of Commons passes a vote of no confidence to him. That is against Boris. The Queen thus handed him the "black mark."
Why is she obliged to intervene?
At the same time, the Sunday Times published a photograph of Elizabeth II in Scotland last week. And also with a hint. Photo taken in Scotland, which (together with Northern Ireland) does not want to leave the EU.
The words of the Queen’s assistants cited in the British media that the 93-year-old monarch, who began her reign with Prime Minister Winston Churchill, actually indicate that the patience of Elizabeth II is running out.
The popular Daily Mail newspaper explained what this means: the monarch will have no choice but to remove Johnson if the parliament expresses distrust and the prime minister does not want to leave voluntarily.
The Queen simply has no other choice, because the Laborites will not accept the arbitrariness of Prime Minister Johnson. On Wednesday, shadow chancellor John McDonnell warned that if Johnson was defeated by a vote of confidence, Labor would insist that Jeremy Corbin become prime minister.
In other words, the Labor Party, in the person of their leader Corbin, takes power, and the conservatives, led by Johnson, do not want to give it away. And this happens in a country deeply divided because of Brexit, some of whose components, led by Scotland, want to remain in the EU. This is a complete collapse, which the queen does not need at all, and for which Johnson, with his frightening shocking style, is only one of many on her long century inhabitants of Downing Street, 10.
Yes, of course, the British political system is designed so that the monarch keeps himself “in ordinary times” as far away from current politics as possible, stamping the decisions made by the government. However, quite unusual times have come, so this time Elizabeth II will have to act differently. After all, a vote of no confidence can be passed already in September, when the parliamentary holidays will end.
Can the queen remove Johnson?
Today, the monarchy exists mainly in the role of bait for tourists from all over the world and in order to divert the attention of the British from more serious problems. This is one of the ways to make money - on tours of the palaces, through the sale of souvenirs, T-shirts, newspapers and glossy magazines. It’s also a great way to make a layman flip through the media, in which real or imaginary adventures of members of the royal family, scandals, and secular affairs are savored.
However, this generally accepted view of the British monarchy is far from reality.
It is the monarch who stands at the source of the highest power in the country, it is he who has the right to “encourage and warn,” which Elizabeth II used in this case.
This monarch dissolves parliament, appoints and dismisses the cabinet. He\She is the head of state and the Commonwealth, which includes over 50 countries, including Canada and Australia.
The strength of the British monarchy lies in the fact that it combines the power of visible and invisible, backstage and even religious, because the monarch is also the head of the Church of England. Like the Pope, according to the law "he cannot be wrong." The first person in the country is not the Prime Ministers who come and go (sometimes quite unexpectedly - after a vote of no confidence in the House of Commons), but the monarch as the most visible and brightest figure uniting the people and their elite, Britain and its Commonwealth.
An oath of allegiance is made in Britain to the monarch, not parliament or the nation. The British anthem is called "God Save the Queen." Elizabeth II - Supreme Commander-in-Chief, her prerogative is to declare war and conclude peace. The face of the British monarch appears on postage stamps, coins, and banknotes of the Bank of England. All parliamentary acts are adopted in the name of the monarch, bills become laws only with her consent. The monarch creates peers, introduces elite representatives who came into it from the people, distributes awards to the rank of knight.
As the head of the Church of England, the monarch appoints bishops and archbishops. The royal family controls the numerous English Freemasonry, which has long permeated all the state and public structures of the country. The British royal family even has their own personal estate - Channel Islands in the English Channel, Isle of Man between England and Ireland, Lancashire and Cornwall ...
Who is Boris Johnson to resist the will of the monarch, especially if he angered her?
