A terrible thought

 I've just had a terrible thought following on from my last article. Under what circumstances, if any, would Her Majesty the Queen award an honour to a person deemed unsuitable by  a huge number of the general public, a person widely considered to have lied in public office and sent dozens of men to their deaths in an illegal war with Iraq?

What if this person, a member of the Privy Council, could suggest that he or she might be able to make Her Majesty's greatest worries, her beleaguered son, say, disappear? In such cicumstances, might there be an expectation of a show of appreciation?

No! It couldn't happen as Her Majesty views her duty to the people of the United Kingdom as sacrosanct. Duty before family, but in another world, another ruler, this might not be the case. Or am I just a cynic?
