Politicising the Monarchy?


My call for The Queen's portrait to be put on prominent display at the Town Hall features in today's Greenwich Mercury. Council Leader Chris Roberts has responded, saying it is 'Very unseemly' to politicise the Monarchy. It's a slightly odd reaction, but then he doesn't take criticism very well. I'm certainly not seeking to politicise the Monarchy - Her Majesty is above party politics, which is rather my point. I would hope all parties would agree we should pay proper respect to our Head of State- it would be 'seemly' to do so.
