Crunch time for Queen Elizabeth II of England!
The Queen well deserved the musical tributes delivered last evening, for she has impeccably fulfilled the detail and ceremonial requirements of her role throughout her sixty year reign .
The crunch will come today at St Paul's Cathedral, when she will be expected to renew or at least recall her Coronation Oaths. The situation across the EU today with the crisis in the Eurozone cannot therefore any be longer avoided, or be pretended as not existing.
The loyalty to the Queen, offered so clearly by her millions of subjects and supporters, as demonstrated over this Diamond Jubilee weekend cannot co-exist with the pretence that we still rule ourselves according to our own laws and customs.
We can sink with the rest of the EU alongside the common currency we never joined, or seek an honourable exit saving what we may. The people have every right to look to their Queen to take them in the latter direction according to the solemn oath she swore in Westminster Abbey, sixty years ago!
