Just heard the sad news about the Queen's passing. I've never been a royalist or anything but I always had the upmost respect for her (maybe except for her handling of Diana) and loved her personality.

Farewell, Her Majesty.

Nostalgia for the late Queen Elizabeth II can be milked for centuries and you won't have to pretend that Charles makes a dignified head of state.

Sorry, too soon?

An occasion where people from "all sides" of the political spectrum dined with the President of Ireland and the Queen in Dublin to celebrate peace in Ireland. A peace which was achieved in part due to membership of the EU (no borders), and which has been sadly in a precarious position since Brexit, the gift that eh, keeps on giving...
