Does Canada have any tunnels? Just wondering. And... IS the Queen going to be driving?

I'm hoping Ahmedinejad walks out on her speech.
Man that would be a classic moment/

The Queen sits on her royal back-side all day long, and when it becomes time to wipe... you(s) really think that she would wipe her own back-side...No! She is so dam lazy just to wipe her own back-side clean.

I appreciate that it is trendy on this Board to slight the Queen, to accuse her of being a Lizard or some key player in the Illuminati, but if you cut through this blabbering you may discover that she could well have something to say which is useful.
Oh, I know that Iraq and Afghanistan are unpopular, but there are many conflicts throughout the world that take a higher toll of human misery and in the great scheme of things both nations will turn out better. Iraq is a democracy of sorts and political opponents no longer have their tongues removed as a matter of course (“I would like to say “thanks” to Saddam for his mercy, but I can’t”) and Afghan girls can go to school.
Anyway, the Queen is the Head of the Commonwealth which has done more for the development of democracy and economic / social development amongst its 54 members than the UN, the US, Soviet Union or any number of countries or collectives. As a very long standing Head of State she probably has more to say and carries more personal respect than any other.
Whether you like her or think she’s a lizard should not detract from the message and if it does a modicum of good then it’s worth it.

I read this before. I must admit I had a chuckle to myself. Who honestly respects what the Queen has to say these days! She is just a piece of political decoration, nothing she says will be taken seriously.

Why is it going to be 'One of the most important speeches of her 28 year reign'?
The timing of this could be significant. Is war really on the horizon somewhere in the world?
