Don't Save the Queen

Today is Thursday, 2 April 2009.

Scratch a royal, find a Capone.

As true for Elizabeth “Lizzie Snoots” Windsor (AKA “Queen Elizabeth II”) as for any of them. Read the history of her royal ancestors, substituting the names of The Five Families of New York City (Bonanno, Columbo, Gambino, Genovese, Lucchese) for the Houses of Wessex, Normandy, Plantaganet, Tudor, Stuart, Hanover, Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, and Windsor, and the result is indistinguishable from The Godfather trilogy.

Same holds true for royal houses the world over: their ancestors were common criminals who rose like scum to the top, put on airs, and stole the people blind. Lizzie Windsor is just another receiver of stolen property.

Some twenty years ago, I read a novel, its title forgotten, in which a real Labour government comes to power in the UK, confiscates all assets of the House of Windsor, moves E. Windsor and her lecherous brood to council flats (public housing), and graciously permits them to live on the dole. The antics of Lizzie, Philip, the Queen Mother, Charles, etc., confined to dingy rooms, surrounded by yapping Corgis, are quite amusing.

Here’s hoping life soon imitates art, and Lizzie spends her life's remainder finally doing honest work: cleaning toilets in slums.

I’m not surprised the Obamas have chosen to suck up to Lizzie Windsor, just disgusted.

True nobility is such as the great French writer Emile Zola, born on this date in 1840. Quoted today in The Writer’s Almanac: "If you ask me what I came into this life to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud."

At last we know what W. Bush really does in retirement: masquerade as Martin Hickman, Consumer Affairs Correspondent of The Independent newspaper in the UK. How else explain the following from “Oodles of noodles: Britain prefers Chinese to curry”?

“…almost a third of people have visited a Chinese restaurant in the past 12 months compared with 30 per cent who have been to a curry house.”
