“LIONEL MANDRAKE” ON THE QUEEN MOTHER:
The Queen Moher has died at the ripe old age of 101.
I am not a Royalist, by any stretch of the imagination. However, I did respect the Queen Mother. She was the only member of that family not tarnished by scandal, and had worked hard all her life.
Hitler apparently called her “The most dangerous woman in England”. He was referring to the propoganda value behind the decision not to move the Royal Family out of London during WWII when Buck. House was hit by German bombs.
The Queen sends a telegram to each British citizen on their 100th birthday. She did send one to her Mother, signed “Lillybet”.
The Royal Family will be weaker for her passing. It remains to be seen whether this is a good thing, a bad thing, or just a thing.
