. Why does the BBC iPlayer say the speech was uploaded on 5 March 2020? Was it produced way before the quarantine, uploaded on servers and put on hold, and then released a month late?!? First she has to reduce duties on his own business of tobacco. BBCPolitics I believe she is sincere and genuinely cares - ‘Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.’
BBCWorld Truly inspiring to listen to an intelligent sensible leader. BBCWorld May I take the Thornburg thrown back please You are beautiful queen but none of your family wants it Sick to death of reading the abuse and negativity during this crisis. We need leadership and no leader on our planet has served her country more loyally than our Queen. Unaccountable armchair critics should show some respect and common decency.
I just want to know about my spiders and ants. Why do the BBC and Sky insist on telling us what the Queen will say, rather than just letting us hear her say it So the most pampered woman on earth, sat on billions, is going to tell people that are facing hardship and tough futures that we are all in this together. Time for her to go. Turn the palaces into hotels for pensioners to have a fortnight holiday at. TheQueen
'These bloody people. I can't bear that man. I mean, he's so awful, he really is.' Prince Charles on Nicholas Witchell, and that was before he told us what the Queen is going to say tonight, the prat... 😂 Why do you need to leak what’s in her speech when people are going to watch it later? Makes the broadcast a bit pointless when we already know what she’s going to say
COVID-19 VIRUS CONSPIRACY TOXICITY IGNORED PART 2 -DR BUTTAR Billionaires like her , Branson and Barclay bros could have poured enough cash into this problem and alleviated at least some of the problems associated with the virus Is she taking a paycut to help the NHS? Did matthancock ask her to? BBCWorld Commomwealth?! The Walking Dead!! Yeaaaah!
Is she going to give some of her millions away to help us, I bet the answer is no You have leaked so much of the speech, there is no point in watching it BorisJohnson : Queen who?! Tell this old lady to get lost !! UK only worships King Xi Jin Ping and Master of Beijing !! Long Live ChineseVirus !! Hail CCP !!
We want to hear the speech from Her Majesty we don’t need your Royal Correspondent giving large chunks of the speech in a bulletin - whatever happened to embargo’s? Big wave of sudden death moving towards England's highest officials within two weeks,take good care of Queen Elizabeth Is she handing over money or one of her houses? She better be.
No thanks! No words won't ease the pain and agony ,won't help the NHS ,but £££ to the NHS will be massive boost and help them to buy what they're in need so badly ,we all know how bad thing are ,also know how wealthy the royal family is . BBCWorld Still clinging to the hopes of british empire ? New world supers are rising and she can’t accept it , well tough luck .
What's point of showing her speech tonight when the BBC have already been reading the speech out today? BBCWorld I’m so envious of the UK, and their leadership..... all we have is a bitchy rotten tangerine that talks with his hands in a broken language Sorry, I'll be cutting my hair. BBCWorld Unless she’s announcing that she will be using some of her vast wealth to help “her people” then I’m not interested - words are cheap Lizzy!
Does anyone actually give two fucks about what this relic has to say? “Don’t worry, do as you’re told and you’ll soon be back to making me a fortune” *turns and plays out always look on the bright side of life on a gold piano Imagine looking forward to watching this BBCWorld Will she acknowledge it from one of her castles she gets for contributing nothing?
the queen has spoken. coronavirus you better go now or else .... I’ve always been broadly supportive of the Royals - esp the Queen. Bought into the tourist income value case etc. But their time is up. What can a bunch of over-privileged people do for us now? We don’t need it but their moral guidance, at the price it comes in at.
Tell her paedo son to isolate in a jail cell Let's wait and see? 'we do feel your pain.....only this morning we had to downgrade our toilet paper from £50 notes to £20s..' BBCWorld Hand in pocket your majesty Corona virus is shitting itself 🙄 We can pretty much imagine already what she's gonna say and also because the media has been sharing a good portion of it already, what she needs to be announcing that she's going to write a fat cheque to the NHS!
Have to set the timer for this one as I am washing my socks Corona in Latin means crown and did anyone spot the crown on the beer label and I know Prince Philip quoted this awhile ago but he may come back as Covid -20❗ Thank jaysus, I thought ventilators and masks were the key. Apparently hot air and filtered privilege is the answer. Plenty of that in the establishment.
She's having to get by on £95 a week...oh yeah plus the half a million she gets!! Who wants to listen to this ,outdated crap who do they think they are kidding other than the BBC twats of course No need to watch- whole speech already seems to have been aired on the news channels A time of disruption ? Thousands of people are dying and you refer to it as if it’s the weather and we’ve had some snow
Wonder if she uses the Tesco 1hr shopping window for the elderly .. HOLD YOUR BREATH,THE POLITICAL DIRTY CARD , THE LAST RESORT . BBCWorld It‘s time for william BBCPolitics We will watching because she is everyone's grandma 👵 👑 someone sitting on more money than they can spend is going to acknowledge the financial challenges fucking laughable 😂😂😂
Perhaps she can join the footballers and for the time being give up Taxpayer money so it can be redirected to the NHS. BBCPolitics Mon’ big Liz! And that’s why I don’t watch MSM the Queen is a child killer abuse PIZZAGATEISREAL God bless the queen BBCBusiness She could put her hand in her pocket as well. Same as Harry as he looks for a pad in LA and the nonce as well.
Old bastard Tortoise BBCWorld We don’t care, the old world order is over. Bye demon!!! Your time is up! BBCWorld Thank God! We’ve all been waiting for this! How can we survive without hearing from her 😂 BBCPolitics I'll be busy watching raceacrosstheworld Prefer to watch entertainment during these dark times tbh.
💙💙🇬🇧💙💙 BBCBusiness I am no royalist by any stretch, but don't get why every time she is due to do a speech, the contents are released beforehand. What is the point? We are happy to hear that she has gotten a vaccine. If not, 🤷 I don't think a nation of people worried about what they'll be wiping their arses with in the coming weeks are going to be that interested in the thoughts of someone with a choice of castles to isolate in
Thoughts and prayers. fluff76 May the almighty God, be with her always Deluded brits will be tuning in to this Fraud as Lizzy rants from her empire of gold & priceless art while the NHS struggle for basic necessities. DeSaxeCobourgGotha As for the airheads on holiday mode in the sun, take a good look at yourselves and know, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM!!
I'd much rather watch Her Majesty address the nation than that arrogant buffoon Trump. To those criticising her broadcast, simple don't watch, no one's forcing you to! BBCPolitics So bloody what?
