The Queen is not an Ostrich

On the box, earlier tonight I watched The Queen starring Helen Mirren. What struck me was the theme that the Royal Family was initially in total denial and basically did not understand the feelings out there in the UK population, nor worldwide in the aftermath of the Princess of Wales death. Their sense of denial increased until, in The Queen’s instance she saw sense and actually reversed policy and started to understand and accept that old methods and processes had no relevance in this particular changing society.

I am neither a monarchist, nor a republican and neither do I sit on the fence, but that is another story. What I wish to draw from this storyline is that in The Queen’s instance the UK monarchy was in so much denial that its continued existence was substantially threatened. Not only that but that this threat almost entirely came from its own actions, or rather inaction.

This reminds me of a certain company featured on this blog that is looking more like an Ostrich every day.
