A week before her resignation Britain’s Daily Mail gave bashing Theresa May a rest and reverted to their other pet topic, the Royal Family.
With world-class sycophancy they devoted their front page to the Queen’s alleged wonderful sense of humour.
A large photo showed her greeting her grandson William and his wife and offspring. “You’re all looking tidy”, the Mail, barely able to contain itself with this side-splitting, rolling in the aisles wit, reported her saying.
I rather think that week’s Economist was more on the mark. Writing of the Queen’s near century in the public gaze, the magazine observed she’d never uttered a single memorable sentence.
