We need to give the monarchy more teeth. I have difficulty imagining that the Queen truly wanted to give that honour. We're not talking about just befriending a person here, but rather giving her a high honour that a person ought to earn.

I believe that if the monarchy had more teeth, the Queen would have refused to confer such an honour for the promotion of the exploitation of some of the country's most vulnerable people.

She's going to grant Trump an audience (maybe) despite a couple of million signatures on a petition not to do so.

But at least she won't give him any kind of official honorary recognition. She'll be meeting him like she waves at strangers as just a common courtesy.

She'll file him along with Mugabe, you mean?

She might hire a lookalike to entertain him while she attends to more important business. He won't tell the difference.

He just want's her as a photo prop. "Look at me!" A wax look-alike will do the trick.
