Queen Mother said:
"'It [EEC] will never work, you know,' she declared, using the already long out-of-date term the EEC. 'It will never work with all those Huns, Wops and Dagos.'

There's very few English women of her generation who wouldn't think the same.

I find such a statement by her ironic in the extreme, since she married into one of the most multicultural famillies in history!

Those three nations were fascist murder-machines in her lifetime. She was a product of her time. I have no doubt she was a bigot (including against us Irish), but then so were many...
I'm not so sure, she was keen on her nags, many of which she sourced through an Irish dealer.
