It happens every election year. Everyone swears if so-and-so wins, they’ll move to Canada, or that so-and-so is to crazy to win, or that we should just get the British to run everything.
Well, someone thought that last idea was brilliant enough to warrant a letter to Buckingham palace. And, to the shock of the anglophile and their friend, the queen responded a few days later.
The letter reads: “I have been asked to write in response to your recent letter to The Queen in which you express your views about the American government.
Whilst your views have been noted, you will appreciate, I am sure, that there can be no question of The Queen intervening in the affairs of another Sovereign state.”
The letter has been a hit on social media, racking up over 2 million views. As one poster put it: “This is awesome. And treasonous.”
