But if this country really does need something meaningless and symbolic to get behind, why we should restrict the search field to elderly members of the Royal Family? Just about anything would do, wouldn't it? Let the people choose who or what gets their allegiance! In fact, let's do the show right here...
Which of the following would you prefer to swear allegiance to?
Queen (Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the fandango?)
queuing in an orderly fashion
Queer As Folk
quilted toilet roll
quadrilaterally-based questionnaires, a.k.a. TICKY BOXES!!
Your chance for a write-in vote: what else beginning with Q is worthy of allegiance?
