I Wonder How He Manages With Stamps..?

A picture of the Queen is at the centre of an extraordinary row between two Tube drivers, the Standard can reveal.

A Central line worker who put a poster of the monarch on an office wall has been suspended by London Underground bosses after the other driver accused him of creating a “hostile” working environment.

The picture — and another the driver put on his desk — has now been removed while an investigation is carried out.

Is there a name for this fear of the Queen, as there is with clowns?

But wait! It seems there might be more to this than just the terrifying visage of Her Maj:

The complainant is a member of the RMT, while the suspended driver belongs to rival union Aslef and this is believed to have added to the tensions.

A source said the men have vastly differing political allegiances, which had added to the toxic atmosphere between them.

Now, surely, no matter what your personal ‘political allegiances’, the Queen is our Head of State, is she not?

So there should be no issue with you displaying her picture if you want to?

    It’s back to the 1960s! There can be no justification for two unions in the same workplace in C21. No wonder the underground is lagging other capital cities’ ones; noisy, dirty, unreliable and with overpaid surly staff.

    The answer is simple. Put up a poster of the Queen and also one of Josef Stalin. At the end of a week check which one has more holes from darts in it, take that one down and leave the other one up, moustache and all.
