Later today that oaf Brown will visit Her Majesty to ask her to dissolve parliament. If she is lucky she will only have to see him once more, briefly on 7 May when he calls by to resign as First Lord of the Treasury. I hope the footmen are well briefed to watch the silver. I bet HRH manages to make himself scarce during these visits. Perhaps he could pop out and make a show of refusing to shake Brown's hand.
