"'Feck them all, the English government and the Royal Family—they raped and desolated us,' my Irish grandmother, a woman of stoutly Fenian views, would say whenever she saw the Queen appear on the television. 'But, oh she’s nice. Let me see her,'" – John Cassidy on the strangely resilient "anachronism" called the British monarchy.
Here are the lyrics to "God Save The Queen," seen above. Money quote:
When there's no future
How can there be sin
We're the flowers in the dustbin
We're the poison in your human machine
We're the future, your future
God save the queen
We mean it man
We love our queen
And we still do.
