It's good to be King

The King is coming to the Oudayas today - I left - too many chaps with guns. I'm a bit miffed that they have been tarting up the Oudayas for weeks now - and now I find out it's all for his visit. Doesn't sit well with me. I may be a monarchist, but I like a benevolent and conscientious monarch.

A benevolent and conscientious monarch? Hmmmm... you really are a dreamer, aren't you! :-D

I completely understand why you're miffed. That's annoying! Hope you can go back to the Ouadayas soon...

M six falls in the category "benevolent and conscientious Monarch". It is a myth that in republics always the best make it to the top. Or would you say Georg Dubya was the best the USA could offer?

Our own Queen (of England) is said to have remarked that the whole world smells of paint - this presumably because everything has been tarted-up in advance of her arrival.

I'd call her benevolent and conscientious on the whole. A little dull perhaps - but better that than some of the flashier presidents and other monarchs one sees?

Not sure about the rest of her family though...

Did you mean intelligent and benevolent?
