Happy Birthday to the Queen

On the occasion of Her Majesty’s 90th birthday I feel compelled to write a heartfelt, joyful greeting, outlining all I like about this great nation. I like having a national health care service. I like the principle of providing good quality education for all. I like the principle of having an independent, free investigative press. I like the principle of respect for human rights. I like the spirit of fair play and compassion. I like the principle of providing a level playing field for all. I like the humanitarian principle of caring for those who face difficulties in their lives, of not letting people die young of preventable illnesses or of extreme poverty and deprivation. I like the principle of having an intelligent understanding of our history and of the many peoples and cultures of the world. I fact, I would say that I love, rather than simply like, all these things in Britain and I fear so much the thought of losing them. On this auspicious day I call on others to love Britain as I do, and to cherish and support the rare and beautiful qualities of this nation. We should all be working not to minimise tax, but to minimise injustice. Why would you not pay a fair share of taxes to keep this great nation great? I say this especially to those who have millions stashed and/or hidden in offshore accounts and to those who are so wealthy they can’t even remember how many houses they own! I fervently want to keep Britain great. We should not compromise on these ideals. Celebrate all this about Great Britain today, in the name of Her Majesty’s 90th birthday.
