got one of these again

is this a hint? do they know an election is imminent

Double bluff.

Military takeover with Duke of Edinburgh as Lord Protector.

heh

who’s up for rebelling against that?

At this point in the life of the UK I would actively support a military coup.  Got to be preferable to anything else currently on offer.

Just put the Queen back in charge of everything, tbh.

The queen has absolutely no relevant experience and shouldn't be anywhere near a leadership position.

Heh @ "no relevant experience". She's been the head of state for nearly 70 years and outlasted 13 prime ministers in that time. I'm pretty sure she has a fairly good idea about how to govern a country, and how not to.

Notional head of state.  She’s great for small talk and meet and greets and I’m sure she has sensible and considered views on general stuff, but moving from a figurehead position with the luxury of never being questioned to actually rolling up your sleeves and governing is beyond her.

Also she’s about a million years old.

To be fair, if she seized power in some sort of coup then she would retain the luxury of never being questioned. By virtue of being able have any such putative questioners shot in the middle of their faces.

Who fucking cares, it's also beyond the people we actually pay to do it. She can't do a worse job than this shower.

Macron for Head of State, Merkel for PM, Trudeau for Foreign Secretary. Or just closer union with Europe. 

Why bother having any government, just sub-contract to Brussels.

No. I get about 4 or 5 of these a year. It's ridiculous. 

Yeah, but they’re not normally the aggressive “you must respond” type
