The Royal Blackberry

More good news about Her Maj. According to one of the papers, she already has this handy device and has even achieved the wellnigh impossible feat of irritating Phil (a man known for his Zen-like calm) with her addiction to it. But the really good news is that she uses it largely to keep track of the racing results. A monarch is never more innocently - and usefully - employed than in following the racing, the one true sport of England (and the one we're best at). Bringing together the highest and the lowest in the land, town and country - but retaining its deep rural roots - it represents her realm far more completely, and in a far more benevolent light, than any other institutionalised pastime. Her Maj is, as ever, keeping her finger on the pulse of national life - a life that is largely ignored by an increasingly irrelevant political caste.

  3. ''Hello?! It's One! We are on the throne!''

    (totally fictitious, of course, as any fule kno, our Maj never has need of the facilities).

  4. Well, if true, I'm impressed that she has become an adept. While many her age have managed to become computer savvy, most aren't up to mastering the intricacies of a Blackberry or the lingo of SMS.
