Gromit, I'm not offended. I just agree with the OP. She's ignorant.

damn savage should never see the light of day again.

Everyone knows HM is ceaseless in her attempts to find tax breaks and legal exemptions

That’s respect now TTT or lack of it, doesn’t matter she’s our Monarch but the woman is 95 yrs old , I wonder if those that take delight in knocking her would walk up to a person of her age and be so damn rude?
Lack of respect or just badly phrased? Your link appears to lean toward the latter, TTT. Much ado about nothing.
-- answer removed --
are you saying my link is incorrect, TTT?
Question Author
we are talking about the article in question. If you want to talk about other matters jno post your own question.
As far as I’m concerned , be anti Royal, I don’t care but at least show respect for a very elderly lady !
I expect HM will get over it.

//Everyone knows HM is ceaseless in her attempts to find tax breaks and legal exemptions//

And why shouldn't she be? Everybody, from the Queen downwards, has an absolute duty to minimise the amount they are obliged to pay to the State. Much of what is received is only wasted so if there is less of it there is less to waste.

Similarly everybody has an obligation to minimise the State's involvement in their daily affairs as far as possible. Good luck to anybody who can do either or both and that extends to The Queen..
What I find incomprehensible is that the article describes her as a star.
'Much of what is received is only wasted so if there is less of it there is less to waste.'

That presupposes that if they have less, it will be spent more wisely which is a dangerous assumption.
// Everybody, from the Queen downwards, has an absolute duty to minimise the amount they are obliged to pay to the State. ... Similarly everybody has an obligation to minimise the State's involvement in their daily affairs as far as possible. //

This seems at best a political position, rather than an absolute truth. Historically, it is true, the role of the State was often fairly minimal, being confined to foreign diplomacy and raising armies (and, on occasion, taxes to fund said armies). But an increase in the focus of the State on other matters has gone hand-in-hand with a more general improvement in quality of life -- by no means is it the only factor, of course, but it's certainly no accident that, for example, State pensions and State benefits have reduced the occurrence of absolute poverty.
Self-important 'gobs on sticks' - as 'they' say - abound. Sad people.
Another case of 'open mouth, put foot in it'.
I can't imagine going to work every day, with thousands of people watching and waiting for you to say the slightest wrong thing, and let's face it, we all say the wrong thing sometimes, and then have thousands of people leaping onto their keyboards to compete with their pointless outrage.

What a world we live in.
I was responding directly to the article. She says the queen doesn't do much, I said she does.

You didn't respond to the article. Talking about her lifetime of service is not a response to a claim that she isn't doing much now.
One must feel Sorry for the Queen . She has to have an audience with Bunter every week . Poor thing.
jno - // I was responding directly to the article. She says the queen doesn't do much, I said she does.

To whom is your post addressed?
Mountain out of a molehill.

She was saying she doesn’t do much in her ceremonial role as Chancellor of the University of Central Lancashire.
She was trying to be self effacing.
She also quickly apologised.

Prime example of people feigning being offended by not a serious remark.
sorry, andy, that was to TTT, who claimed "we are talking about the article in question" but was actually dodging the issue raised in it.
yes, quite right, Gromit. Storm in an Express (and AB) teacup.
