People of the Commonwealth should “support those in need” and others who “feel excluded”, the Queen said in her annual message to the association, which is focused on inclusivity. She said helping those less fortunate would be a way of embodying this year's Commonwealth theme of inclusivity. Read full article

    And as an aside “ she said that the FALKLANDS were part of the British Overseas Territory and no talks could or would take place without the presence of the FALKLANDERS ”

    Argentistan is jealous because it was not invited to join the Commonwealth.

    @4 Hard to say. It has so far fiercely resisted civilising influences.

    It's a bit rich of Elizabeth Windsor, one of the richest and unaccountable women in the world, to talk about 'inclusivity'! She should keep her mouth shut.

    The last time I checked the civil list cost each one of us about 50 pence or half a GBP or about 10million argie arsewipes when your 'queen' aka TMBOA, she of the 2cm face make up, was stuffing USD into sacks and having it sent outside the country.

    How pleased you must be for being rated a bunch of twats by the rest of the world!

    “It's a bit rich of Elizabeth Windsor, one of the richest and unaccountable women in the world, to talk about 'inclusivity'! She should keep her mouth shut.”

    Bit silly considering she is the Head of the Commonwealth.

    If only more countries (especially in Latin America) had heads of state that were as reticent in voicing every single brain fart that comes to them.

    “She should keep her mouth shut.”
    Maybe so, we all have opinions on these matters, but what exactly on you going to DO about this situation?
    Pray tell. We await your fine insight.

    Mr Osborne just stated that we are the best prepared and strongest of any nation in the EU,

    so we are in a better position to leave that lot behind and lead the Commonwealth.

    Lead the Commonwealth?

    Yeah don't think so. We ain't colonies of Britain any longer.
