In a recent article published in ‘The Sun’, Britain’s most popular tabloid newspaper, the Queen has been described as a backer of Brexit – a potential exit from the European Union by Great Britain.
The tabloid has published a conversation between her majesty and Nick Clegg over Europe. The alleged discussion took place during a lunch at Windsor Castle and, as an anonymous but reliable source points out, Queen Elizabeth took a hit at the Deputy PM over the future of Europe.
Mr. Clegg is a well-known supporter of the European Union and the Queen allegedly stated that she believed the EU was heading in the wrong direction.
According to the source, the EU criticism ‘went on for a while’, leaving the other guests at the lunch speechless.
The tabloid reveals the following: ‘People that were present at this discussion were left without any doubt about the Queen’s views on Europe’
‘The EU is a subject her Majesty is clearly passionate about’
Her majesty is also believed to have spoken her mind with regards of the European Union at another reception held at the Buckingham Palace.
Both the Queen and Mr. Clegg claimed that the news was false and tried down-play the article.
A spokesperson of the Buckingham Palace pointed out that ‘The Queen remains politically neutral, as she has been for the past 63 years’.
On the other hand, Mr. Clegg claims he has ‘no recollection’ of the meetings that ‘The Sun’ refers to.
The referendum which decides Britain’s fate will take place in June 2016 and the country has never been more divided on an issue for a very long time.
I am extremely disappointed that this newspaper has chosen to throw mud at the Queen and dupe the British people in this completely unethical and unprofessional manner.
The Queen should not be dragged into any political issues for the sake of publicity. The Queen has been above politics for over half a decade and ‘The Sun’ newspaper should respect that.
Please take a moment to show support my cause and urge ‘The Sun’ to keep the Queen and the monarchy out of British politics. They have plenty of other topics to choose from – but negative aspects about the British Monarchy should be off limits.
