CNN will be pissed that someone published some big fake news before them.

its rather pathetic - how true that is - even dead - she will make a better effort than most of her subjects

Well if she is under house arrest, she would need to place herself under arrest, and technically could also pardon said arrest at will. Its kind of part of the deal of being a Queen.

Still doesn't explain the issue of a Black out on Royal news releases though.



This is true, but perhaps that too was just coincidence. Has anybody checked the Royal Correspondents accounts to see if they're back up posting?

I can't see house arrest working either.
All armed forces take an oath of loyalty to the Queen. You'd be hard pressed to find anyone who, having taken that oath, would take part in such a scheme without hard evidence of the blackest crimes.

Totally agree after all this is the United Kingdom not some third world nation where military coups take place every second Tuesday.

The catch-22 is that she can't do anything, even pardon herself, except "on the advice of her ministers". That's part of the deal too. The "not being allowed to make a speech" theory, though implausible, does have a sort of historical precedent in the Abdication Crisis. Edward VIII would have loved to address an appeal to his people over the heads of his government, but they wouldn't let him.

I think if she is of sound mind any ministers that suggested such an arrest may find themselves doing a wee bit gaol time in a really dark place.

Anybody, ministers or otherwise, that suggested such a thing would be rather hard pressed to gain any form of military support.

Keeping in mind she also not just the head of state and Queen of the nation, she's got more monies, land and power than just about anyone else on the planet.

So this was garbage.

When are you people going to learn that some unknown punters twitter account is not a news source?

Ah, but it was "speculation" which makes it ok.

Nope.

My actual thoughts on the subject would, however, have got me kicked off staff and probably off the forum, which I why I chose my words carefully..

Really though, ATS has been full of excessively stupid stories and "speculation" (which is another word for made up #) over the past year.

The art of critical thought appears to be dead and inanity seems to rule and I'm sick to death of it.

Buckingham Palace has come out with a very brief update on HM and the Duke of Edinburgh:


Buckingham Palace were forced to confirm that the Queen is not dead after a sick Twitter hoax claimed that she had passed away while battling a cold. A spokesman said: "The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh continue to recover from their heavy colds."

Hours before, a spoof BBC news account tweeted: “BREAKING: Buckingham Palace announces the death of Queen Elizabeth II at the age of 90. Circumstances are unknown. More to follow.” The account was later suspended, but not before social media users began speculating that a “media blackout” was covering up the news until it could be reported properly at 8am.

However, as this report confirms, the Queen has been indoors for 10 consecutive days. This is not good.

I don't get colds very often. But when I do, they will get worse and last a long time if I try to do too much too soon. I'm hoping that HM will be ok, given the concerns I brought up in an earlier post about her medical history.

If memory serves, HM the Queen Mother developed pneumonia after suffering from a cold. This wasn't too long before her passing in 2002.


On 30 March 2002, at 15:15 (GMT), the Queen Mother died in her sleep at the Royal Lodge, Windsor Great Park, with her surviving daughter, Queen Elizabeth II, at her bedside. She had been suffering from a cold for the last four months of her life.[127] She was 101 years old, and at the time of her death was the longest-lived member of the royal family in British history.

Here's an excerpt from a report dating back to 2014 which may give clues as to what is going on/has been going on with HM:


When one of the Queen’s top physicians, Professor Huw Thomas, was promoted to a new position last month, he left behind the highly sought-after vacancy of Physician to the Royal Household, a key role on Her Majesty’s medical team. Now I can reveal the job has been filled by a leading specialist in the study of endocrinology and diabetes.

William Drake, professor of endocrinology and clinical endocrinology at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London, was hired by the Palace last month, joining an existing team of physicians to the Royal Household. As part of his role, he will attend to both the Queen and Prince Philip, who has suffered bouts of severe illness in recent years.

A spokesman for the Palace refused to comment on the details of Prof Drake’s appointment, but said his expertise was ‘needed’ to widen the medical knowledge within the Royal Household.

She said: ‘Royal physicians are appointed for their wide-ranging skills and abilities. Prof Drake is one of a number of consultants, all of whom are picked because they have different areas of expertise, and William’s area of expertise was needed to create a wide variety of medical knowledge.

‘Just because he has been brought in does not mean there is a specific requirement.’

On the other hand, the Twitter report that Victoria Beckham has been given the OBE turned out to be true.
I wonder how that leaked out.

If HM the Queen does not attend New Year's services at Sandringham this Sunday, that will be telling. Until the Monarch is seen publicly these rumors will persist.

I tried to contact a Daily Mail Royal correspondent on Twitter & thus far have had no response.

So, you can post any old BS on ATS now as long as it's just "speculation" or "I'm just saying..."

Deny what?
