Re: Would you bow/curtesy?

No I would not curtsey to any other human.
They are not gods and are not worthy of such adulation.

What! Have you not heard of the Divine right of kings (or queens)? Their power is subject to no earthly authority, deriving the right to rule directly from the will of God. So curtsey!

My god, you will be wanting to live in a democracy next. Long live the House of Lords.

I am a Monarchist but think bowing and curtseying is rather old fashioned. I would offer HM my best mug if she pops in for a cuppa.

I wouldn't. She would get a Pink Floyd mug like everybody else does. Not my 'Wish You Were Here' one, I'd probably give her my 'Animals' one to drink from.

I'd offer her a tot of Laphroaig.

I know that Charlie-boy likes it, so maybe Liz does as well.

If one did decide to pop in for tea, one would bring one's own mug, thanks awfully.
