#LabourConference2022 delegate from Edinburgh Vijay Jackson quotes Keir Hardie on why the labour movement should oppose the #monarchy

#QueenElizabethII #KingCharlesIII #NotMyKing #Labour #Lab22 Image
This is what Hardie said:

"Even under a representative system of government it is possible to paralyse a nation by maintaining the fiction that a reigning family is a necessity of good government. Now, one of two things must be – either the British people are fit to govern
themselves or they are not. If they are, an hereditary ruler who in legislation has more power than the whole nation is an insult. Despotism and monarchy are compatible; democracy and monarchy are an unthinkable connection.

Today's edition of the @WSWS_Updates carries three sharp & important comments on the death of #QueenElizabethII.
Chris Marsden's comment on the the #queensfuneral draws a parallel to that of Edward VII in 1910. 1/…
The bombastic spectacle preceded the outbreak of WWI by just 4 years, followed by the overthrow of the Tsars in Russia in 1917 and the German Kaiser in 1918. Similarly, the glorification of monarchy, pomp & backwardness today heralds nothing so much as war & revolution. 2/
In her article, Jean Shaoul details only one of the horrific massacres in Africa that #QueenElizabeth presided over: the bloody crushing of the Mau Mau insurgency in Kenya in 1952-56, with an estimated 150,000 dead 3/:…

1/ On @MSNBC Michael Beschloss just told the story of Gandhi sending the Queen a wedding present—a piece of cloth that he spun himself. Gift was downplayed at the time. Beschloss said gift was sign of how Queen made everyone feel special. 😧 #Queen #funeral
2/ I usually love Michael B’s take on everything on @MSNBC. But this is a GROSS oversimplification of that moment. #QueenElizabethII
3/ When the British colonized India they outlawed the spinning of Indian tapestries. Britain’s Indian “subjects” (non-citizens) were only allowed to grow the raw cotton. Then it was exported to Europe, spun in similar style and sold back to Indians at a profit. #queensfuneral

The Queen’s coffin was carried from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey on a gun carriage towed by ropes and 98 sailors.

It is a tradition dating back more than 100 years, we take a look at why it's pulled with ropes and not horses. 🐴

Every sovereign’s funeral since 1901 has seen the monarch’s remains pulled through the streets by members of their Royal Navy and the funeral for #QueenElizabethII today was no different.…
The reason the Queen’s coffin is not being pulled by horses is because of a near-mishap that occurred during Queen Victoria’s procession in 1901.

The horses which were due to pull Queen Victoria’s coffin spooked and reared, threatening to topple the coffin from the carriage. Queen Victoria's requiem procession started the rope-drawn t

لحقت #إليزابيث_الثانية #QueenElizabethII ملكة بريطانيا، بحبيبها #الامير_فيليب بعد أقل من عامين، حيث أعلن قصر باكنغهام وفاتها يوم الخميس.
كانت قصة حب #الملكة_إليزابيث_الثانية و #الأمير_فيليب مثل القصص الخيالية، فعندما أراد الأمير فيليب الزواج من ولية عهد بريطانيا حينذاك، كان عليه أن يتخلى عن ألقابه الملكية اليونانية والدنماركية.
واكتفى #الامير_فيليب حينذاك بلقب مونتباتن الذى اخذه من عائلة والدته، واعتنق الطائفة الإنجيلية، وأصبح الملازم فيليب بالبحرية البريطانية.

رحلت #إليزابيث_الثانية #QueenElizabethII، وفقد العالم أيقونة للموضة وسيدة دبلوماسية من الدرجة الأولى، إذ كانت تنتقي كل قطعة من مجوهراتها بعناية شديدة.
فالملكة #إليزابيث_الثانية كانت لا ترتدي أي قطعة من مجوهراتها إلا إذا كانت تقصد بها توصيل رسالة محددة، فكانت ترتدي أفخم البروشات لترسل بها تحيات أو رسائل خفية.
كانت #الملكة_إليزابيث_الثانية، ترتدي بروش The Maple-Leaf، عندما تقوم بزيارة كندا، إذ يعتبر هذا النوع من الزهور رمز من رموز كندا.

وكان الملك جورج السادس أهدى هذا البروش إلى زوجته الملكة إليزابيث الأم قبل جولتهما إلى كندا عام 1939، وورثته الملكة إليزابيث الثانية من أمها.

The second wife of King Charles III was once called a "Rottweiler" by Princess Diana, but is now the Queen Consort of the UK. As Charles takes over Britain after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, he will be accompanied by Queen Consort Camilla.… Image
The longest-serving British monarch, #QueenElizabethII, passed away on Thursday after serving as the ruler for seven decades. The Queen had reportedly been on a summer break in Scotland since July and had been experiencing trouble walking and standing since October last year. Image
In 1997, Camilla was depicted as the most hated woman in the UK after Diana, Charles's first wife, died in a car crash at the age of 36. Camilla's accession to the throne, or her even marrying Charles, seemed inconceivable 25 years ago. Image
