Glad head of state is not a politician

I THINK it was 1992 or ‘93 that we were in Calgary, Canada, watching the world famous Stampede. In our stand there was a mixture of Canadians, Americans and two Britons. Somehow the conversation moved to the UK and its Queen.

An American lady said to us, “Why do you want a Queen ?” Now, I am not a royalist, but I could only reply, ----- ”I’m glad that our Head of State is not a politician”.
