THE Queen is frustrated with Britain’s politicians and their ‘inability to govern correctly’, it has been claimed.
The sovereign, who never publicly shares her opinion of goings-on at Westminster, is said to have expressed her ‘disappointment in the current political class’ to royal aides.
She made the comments in 2016 and her feelings have intensified amid endless political turmoil over Brexit, sources told The Sunday Times.
‘She expressed her exasperation about the quality of our political leadership, and that frustration will only have grown,’ one said.
Aides were said to have been surprised by the 93-year-old’s tone, describing her as ‘really dismayed’. It came amid fears that she may have to directly intervene if the government loses a vote of no confidence and Boris Johnson reacts by trying to stay in power until after October 31.
One Remainer source insisted: ‘She (the Queen) would have to sack him. Of course she would.’ Shadow chancellor John McDonnell warned that Labour would demand to be allowed to form a government immediately.
‘I don’t want to drag the Queen into this but I would be sending Jeremy Corbyn in a cab to Buckingham Palace to say we’re taking over,’ he told an event at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
