German press attacks Queen for not stopping Brexit during state funeral

A leading German publication has published an article attacking the late Queen Elizabeth II for failing to stop Brexit at the monarch’s funeral.

The Spiegela leading political magazine in Germany, published an opinion piece on Monday attacking the Queen for failing to take action to prevent Britain from leaving the European Union.

Written by Nikolaus Blome, who is listed by the publication as the head of the political department at media conglomerate RTL and free-to-air television channel n-tv, the article is listed as being published at 12:11 p.m. German time, as the Queen’s state funeral had only just begun.

Title where the queen failedthe article accuses the Queen of ‘breaking’ her duty to the UK by failing to intervene to stop Britain leaving the European Union.

“De mortuis nihil nisi bene, says the educated middle class, nothing bad is said of the dead,” Blome writes. “But one thing must be said: the Queen could have prevented Brexit. But she didn’t.”

“The Queen started with Winston Churchill, the character of the century, and ended with Boris Johnson, the lying prankster,” the expert continued. “If she had prevented Brexit, she would have been spared at least this sanction.”

The German journalist goes on to say that the Queen’s failure to interfere in the referendum has made the break-up of the UK more likely in the years and decades to come, implying young people may resent it to the monarch for allowing democracy to take place in Brittany.

“Today the youth of the country, who have to pay for Brexit, are being said to be turning their backs on the crown,” Blome said. “According to a poll, only 33% of 18-24 year olds support the monarchy. Does this surprise anyone?

“It may be irreverent to ask this question at the open grave, but that doesn’t make it go away,” he continued, writing. “In any case, the breakup of the UK is more likely after Brexit than before.”

Although the publication of an article attacking the legacy of Queen Elizabeth II at the monarch’s funeral probably strikes many – especially in Britain – as extremely crude, the content of the article is not particularly surprising. given both rampant Europhilia and anti-democratic sentiment among Germany’s political elite.

The country’s ruling left-wing coalition has openly stated that it aims to push for the creation of a European federal superstate, with the so-called ‘Traffic Light’ coalition government being accused of pushing for the creation of ‘European federal superstates’. -United of Europe”.

Meanwhile, those who oppose establishment positions on issues such as immigration and European integration have come under regular attack from both the German state and media, with the country going so far as to place a populist party in the country under state surveillance.

The legacy of political mismanagement in Germany has only added to political calls for dissenting voices to be silenced or sidelined, with many of the country’s bigwigs fearing that the right in the country will soon gaining popularity if people were unable to properly heat their homes due to energy shortages in the country.

One state official called potential dissidents among the general public ‘enemies of the state’, and others said Germany could see mass protests, riots and street fights due to financial and social difficulties this winter.

All this despite the fact that the country still remains a member of the European Union, whose leaders have also failed to find real solutions that could prevent shortages across the transnational bloc.
