A present for Her Maj.

There is currently an exhibition in London of gifts given to the Queen.

I read, a few days ago, that a daily newspaper was asking that readers should let them know what gifts they personally would give to the Queen. My nomination would be tickets to a lecture on taxes, redistribution, and the hereditary principle.

I am put in mind of a cartoon I saw once, based on one of Phil’s famous utterances:

‘Our children have all done pretty well’; he says.
‘Yes, they’ve all become princes or princesses’, Brenda amplifies.

I would rather have been asked what I would give them to eat. How about spaghetti, a very messy sauce, and chopsticks?
