21 Gun Salute For Queen’s (Actual) Birthday
The Speculator on
Apr 21, 2011 |
The Queen: 21 today.
The 21 gun salute is in recognition of the Queens actual birthday today. The Speculator didn’t count anywhere near 21, but the Navy assures us that there indeed 21, but some may have been a bit muffled.
As a popularly elected Queen I deplore this pandering to an undemocratic institution. When will you Royalists figure out that what looks like a merely historic attraction for tourists (or a jolly soap opera for those with nothing better to think about) is actually the keystone holding up the arch of an unmeritocratic class system that protects the wealth and power of small and over-privileged elite.
