Thank you for the clip on Harold Wilson Anglophile Jan

I saw a very interesting documentary on the Queen and her Prime Ministers on French tv a while ago which confirmed what you are saying about the fact that Wilson and the Queen actually hit it off very well. After Winston Churchill He was a true mentor in Politics to Her Majesty.

Being an attentive Student in Political science, the Queen learned her lessons in how to deal with Public opinion and social matters during these very formative years.

Interestingly it seems the Queen has always had better relations with Labor PM's than with the Conservative Ones.

Her quacks with Margaret Thatcher are well known particularly during the years when the Iron Lady cracked down on the Unions. The Queen sided with the Unionists creating some discomfort for the PM.

This truly shows what an Intelligent Monarch Queen Elizabeth has been and continues to be.

Thank you again for thise interesting clip.

Gorbanat,

DK

 

PS: It seems you have the same problem as many of us with the Editor on Iranian.com which explains some of the odd spelling. I hope the ADMIN will see to fixing this. I raised the issue but to no effect. because I had similar problems which explains why I used to embedd my videos:

I think Mr Zahedi was the London ambassador at the time. As a credit to Harold Wilson, and despite being a labour prime minister, he hadunderstood the unique advantages of monarchy over republicanism better than many of his Tory politicians. He was made a knight of the Garter, His era was the most exciting period in British way of life in the sixties.
