"Off with his head!"

Go on, who does the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland remind you of? "Off with his head!" indeed.
The players all played at once without waiting for turns, quarrelling all the while, and fighting for the hedgehogs; and in a very short time the Queen was in a furious passion, and went stamping about, and shouting 'Off with his head!' or 'Off with her head!' about once in a minute.

Alice began to feel very uneasy: to be sure, she had not as yet had any dispute with the Queen, but she knew that it might happen any minute, 'and then,' thought she, 'what would become of me? They're dreadfully fond of beheading people here; the great wonder is, that there's any one left alive!'

Hi Paula.

I actually had a closer-to-home candidate in mind: Queen Helen, our PM. Funny how people sometimes read things into posts that were never intended, isn't it. :-)

Yes PC it is interesting. I myself knew you meant our PM (or is that Queen with the way she's acting). However, I like what Paula said, as Muhammad is also like the Queen. Even worse than Queen Clark. It's just been said in the wrong place.
