    [​IMG]UK PM May calls Russia ‘chief threat’ amid abysmal domestic ratings
    May’s speech writers must be thanking their lucky stars for Russia. They needed an easy target that didn’t involve mentioning any of the following during this keynote speech:

    • Brexit is heading for the cliff edge. The government has realized that no matter how much rhetorical twaddle it fires at the Eurocrats, they’re not budging in negotiations.

    • No Tory intern appears to have entered Parliament for a couple of decades without being groped.

    • May’s own ministers now apparently don’t have enough respect for her leadership to even regard it as an inconvenience.

    • Since it became clear she is one disaster away from losing her job, there have been at least four.

    May told the audience, the absolute definition of establishment, that Russia “is seeking to weaponise information deploying its state run media organisations to plant fake stories and photo shopped images in an attempt to sow discord in the West and undermine our institutions.”

    To paraphrase, Britain’s centuries old institutions are at risk because someone in Russia is accused of tweeting and messing around with pictures. Turns out that nuclear deterrent was a waste of cash after all. GCHQ should just hire a group of teenage girls to send some nasty trolling tweets back. This would be over in minutes!

    It’s just a little insulting for the institution she was addressing, which has been around since 1189.

    May said Russia had been “meddling in elections.” That must have been the booze talking, because the following morning her spokesman confirmed she hadn’t actually seen evidence of that.

    The real fake news was more evident in May’s ability to just say things which ignore the reality of Brexit altogether.

    Still on the threat of Russia, she said Moscow underestimated “the commitment of western nations to the alliances that bind us.

    So 17.4 million British voters were led by the nose by the Russians in the #Brexit referendum? If only the Bolsheviks had known it was so easy...#TheRussiansAreComing#SnowOnTheirBoots

    Does she read the newspapers? If Russia has done half the things it is accused of, it can be more readily accused of overestimating those commitments. Britain is in the process of painfully ripping itself, so far unlubricated, out of the EU alliance, and risks potential oblivion doing it. It is certainly committed, though it’s not entirely obvious as to what.

    Some lines of the speech need no commentary, just a little rearranging, to have you scratching your head.

    Some states are actively destabilising the world order to their own ends.

    Guess who she’s talking about there. But then, mere minutes later, a staggering admission:

    The UK is not and will not be afraid to deploy its hard power where necessary. Indeed this is happening around the world as I speak from our world leading covert agencies to over a thousand troops deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, to our Royal Air Force operating in the skies over Syria and Iraq, and our Royal Navy patrolling the waters of the Gulf.

    Thank God for those powers of stability that have allowed the Afghans and Iraqis (and Libyans) to live in peace and harmony. Hopefully, none of them have Twitter.

    Is there anyone laughing at this joker witch or it's just me?

    Trumpism cancer has affected these guys apparently.

    She's telling the truth, western world is collapsing because of it's corruption but she blames it on Russia using a ludicrous tweet.

    As of 2017 the world is at witness that democracy is a failed ideology as those at top only care for corruption or supporting their personal agenda.

    How many years of Queens and kings ruling over England is passed so far?

    Who can control the kingdom in UK?, there is no council that can criticize her as far as i am aware. Their PM is not elected by direct vote, the parliament is also at queen's service. Democracy is the last thing that they can talk about.

    queen is criticised by whoever wants to, they have their opinion

    The monarch hasn't got anything to do with governance of the nation so they eventually have no say in what the politicians decide. If the queen was actively involved in the running Britain the public would have gotten rid of the monarchy decades ago.

    Also a common mans opinion on the monarchy is that it is good for nation because it brings in millions from tourism.

    this symbolic monarch still have some certain powers
    The Queen has the right to rule.. the people of Britain are not citizens, but subjects of the monarch. Most public servants must swear an oath of loyalty, or make an affirmation of their loyalty, to the crown.

    Although the Queen is politically neutral, she has the right to be consulted and to "advise and warn" ministers. Otherwise her residual powers - the "royal prerogative" - are mostly exercised through the government of the day. These include the power to enact legislation, to award honours (on the advice of the prime minister), to sign treaties and to declare war.
    The Queen has two individual powers that could cause a political crisis if they were ever exercised. She may refuse a government's request to dissolve parliament and call an election, if she believes a government can legitimately be formed. She also has the right to choose the prime minister: a formality in the case of a clear majority, but potentially controversial after an inconclusive general election. This almost happened in February 1974, when Labour failed to win an overall majority but the Conservatives considered power-sharing with the Liberals.
    about royal prerogative it is a subject of controversy, because it confers on governments the power to make major decisions without recourse to parliament. When Edward Heath brought Britain into the EEC in 1972, parliament was not consulted until afterwards. Similarly, Margaret Thatcher used royal prerogative to go to war in the Falklands in 1982.
