A Constitutional Thought

As pointed out by my wife who used to work for The Ministry of Defence inside 10 Downing St on the last occasion we went to war.

"If the Prime Minister gets the head staggers, ignores the UN, his party and popular opinion and goes to war, breaching intenational law in the process, then it is up to the Queen, as our consitutional safeguard and the person to whom the armed forces have sworn their allegiance, to intervene and deny Mr Blair the opportunity of using those forces in her name and that of the people of this country".

There's a thought and if she did, I'm sure the popularity of the monarchy would rise considerably. I wonder if the lights are on late tonight at Buckingham Palace?
