    “Elizabeth, who must remain above politics under Britain's unwritten constitution,”
    Does she...?
    Where is this written..?
    Ah..that's right.... in the unwritten constitution...
    “Clegg called the report nonsense. “I've no recollection of this happening & it’s not the sort of thing I would forget,” he said on Twitter.”

    ...not quite the same as a straight forward denial....
    next time try...she never said that...
    or... this did not happen

    HM is a shrewd political operator. She stand head and shoulders above any elected politician.

    Having dealt with much larger dramas than this, I'd take her word over The Sun and Murdoch.

    But hey if you believe The Sun and Murdoch then feel free to disagree. LOL

    An elected politician would chew any of those talentless rich kids up and spit them out.

    Lizzy being a shrewd political operator is like me being undefeated in the wbc heavyweight division.

    What she is good at is having been born into wealth and an unquestioning population.

    All you really have to do is keep the status quo by doing nothing and chilling on a free yacht...oh and keeping charles locked away like ruprecht.

    Your palace/marketing does the rest. Worthless diamonds or lucky randomers all it takes is some branding. Suckers will buy it.

    Oh thats right. They studied and worked hard, were frugal and invested wisely. Finally after years of grind the castles and yachts were paid off.

    Big bird made hundreds of appearances too. Said less cringe worthy bloopers too.
