In Henry VIII’s time this would actually be treason.

Anyway, this is really a fun read for us anti-Royal types. So many good nuggets of WTF


The Queen has died
Haven't had a stats thread in a while eh?
#2

It’s properly fascinating. Got me a little bit excited, I can’t lie.


#3

The prime minister will be woken, if she is not already awake, and civil servants will say “London Bridge is down” on secure lines.

I mean these months of refurbishments must have had the government on tenterhooks, eh @xylo?

Also:

the palace website will be transformed into a sombre, single page, showing the same text on a dark background.

:smiley:

The old bastard will outlive all of us


#5

“Not long afterwards, Dawson injected the king with 750mg of morphine and a gram of cocaine”

Hang on, he went out speedballing??


#6

Makes you wonder what the fuck they have planned for when Bradley Walsh guess down.


#7

Imagine being led to your death just so print deadlines don’t get scuppered.


#8

When the shit guess down you better get ready. When the shit guess down!


#9

The 18th Duke of Norfolk, the Earl Marshal, will be in charge. Norfolks have overseen royal funerals since 1672.

Well, naturally.


#10

Why can’t she just abdicate, like a normal queen?


#11

I read that piece while listening to Haunted Dancehall (Nursery Remix) by Sabres of Paradise - I’m suitably amped now.


#12

She’s been dead for years mate, it’s a lizard wearing a skin prison!


#13

I’m neither a huge republican nor pro-monarch. It will be a massive international event but not necessarily too much of a shock given her age. I don’t think I can take two weeks of archive footage and commentary on all channels. I’ll catch up on some Netflix.


#14

Gonna put on the album in tribute - proper golden era of weird ambient techno record.


#15

It’s quite incredible, isn’t it?

I guess they are our servants after all?


#16

The days after Diana died were some of the most boring I can remember. It’s going to be even worse when Queenie pops it


#17

Even interesting news gets a bit tedious after a few days, 2 weeks of ‘old woman is dead’ will be terrible.


#18

I like her

Mainly for pissing off that Saudi guy who hated when she drove him around. Think she’s pretty cool, as lizard people go.


#19

we can only guess


#20

Makes you wonder what the fuck they have planned for when Bradley Walsh guess down.


Five times @zxcvbnm was a total n00b! (The turn DiS into Buzzfeed thread)
