Wow. Someone who got a job they were never interviewed for and for whom we pay for through no choice held on to that job by virtue of continually not dying each day. Hardly an achievement.
While in an ideal world I would do away with monarchies I still think we can give her a dash of respect for the service she has provided this country. Yes, it is a privileged position, yes she was born into it, but she has been of benefit to this country (even purely in economically cynical sense) so I think we can note the occasion and thank the individual (showing her the same personal respect we should do others) despite disagreeing with the position.

I think the Queen has worked as hard and done as good a job as the country could have asked her to, given the cards life dealt her. Whatever my views on the institution (not strong either way), I have nothing but admiration for her as a professional who takes her responsibilities seriously. And she has always enjoyed popular support, which legitimises her position in my eyes.
Little is known about this goblin beyond its dual role as an offensive weapon and teapot.
