Elizabeth II Having been the mother of our people for so long, most of us simply cannot imagine life without our mother’s presence.

When she took the throne, a few years after the Second World War, England still had an empire. Some foods are still divided. There is a TV channel.

The Beatles are five years away from meeting each other. Elvis is a schoolboy. Smartphones are 60 years in the future.

The Queen has seen 14 Prime Ministers and 14 Presidents of the United States come and go through eight tumultuous decades: JFK assassination, Sixties, moon landings, Troubles, years Conflict-filled 1970s, Falklands, end of apartheid and Soviet Communism, two Gulf Wars, death of Princess Di, 9/11 and subsequent abandonment Scotland’s independence vote and Brexit.

And her almost never put the wrong foot. What an example for Charles.

We hope she enjoys every minute of tomorrow’s Platinum Anniversary, even if she celebrates it without Philip. . . and marked the death of her father.

An incredible round: 70 not out.

Warm congratulations, ma’am, from The Sun.

And a deaf Prime Minister, imposing with tax increases he must see as folly.
Boris can rearrange seats at No10 all he likes. Pilot our paid plans in

April is economic and political suicide.


WHY is this not the Tory Government, with the majority of the population, “finishing the jailbreak”? There is no good answer.

The current bill crisis has exposed the scandalous failure of successive regimes to secure our energy future.

It will be decades before we can rely solely on renewable energy and new nuclear plants.

Meanwhile, we MUST extract the shale gas under our feet.

Past Tory governments have faced a propaganda war won by ecological hysteria promoting fears that are almost entirely bogus.

This will revive fracking with a Covid-style PR campaign, explaining why cheap home-made energy is such an important factor for Net Zero.

Does it have courage? The Queen has almost never misplaced a foot as she marks her 70th year on the throne
