The speech for Her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Elizabeth 2nd to deliver, formed part of a Whitehall exercise codenamed WINTEX-CIMEX 83, which ran in spring 1983. It was one of the most dangerous years of the Cold War.
President Ronald Reagan hoped to put a “Star Wars” ballistic missile shield in space and wanted to deploy US nuclear missiles to Europe, including to RAF Greenham Common west of London. Tensions were raised when the Soviets shot down a South Korean civilian airliner, killing all 269 people on board.
The Queen’s speech, should a Third World War break out, imagined the Soviet Union launching a devastating chemical weapons attack and NATO responding with Nukes.
The last words Britain would have heard from the Queen as it stood on the brink of nuclear annihilation were revealed in the summer of 2014, are part of a treasure trove of declassified documents released from the National Archives at Kew, West London, 30 years after potential Armageddon.
“Now this madness of war is once more spreading through the world and our brave country must again prepare itself to survive against great odds,” it reads. “As we strive together to fight off the new evil let us pray for our country. My message to you therefore is simple. Help those who cannot help themselves, give comfort to the lonely and the homeless and let your family become the focus of hope and life to those who need it. If families remain united and resolute, giving shelter to those living alone and unprotected, our country’s will to survive cannot be broken. May God bless you all.”
The ORIGINAL draft of the Queen’s speech has yet to be revealed. Let me reveal it to you here today!
“Ladies & gentlemen, boys & girls…let those Soviet MOTHERS BURN!! Our brave boys of the RAF will strive to shove a nuclear bomb…or two up the enemy’s JACKSIE (ASS). Who says Great Britain doesn’t EXPORT anything any more? The ‘Made in Britain’ logo will be emblazoned across that F**KING EVIL empire. Rule BRITANNIA! Now where’s my port & lemon? Oh yes…BOOM CHUCKA CHUCKA!”
Secret unclassified documents obtained after a Freedom of Information request by anti-nuclear campaign group the Nuclear Information Service reveal that Britain and America nearly provoked the Soviet Union into launching a full-scale nuclear attack against the West at the height of the Cold War in 1983. The British Cabinet papers show a Nato war games exercise in November 1983 (Operation Able Archer, involved 40,000 troops moving across Western Europe) was so realistic the Soviets mistakenly believed a Western nuclear attack was imminent. In response, the Soviets deployed submarines carrying nuclear missiles under the Arctic ice and more than a dozen aircraft with nuclear weapons. It reminds me of the 1983 kids movie WarGames!
The Soviet response only became clear to British spies when they were briefed by KGB double agent Oleg Gordievsky in London. So, some people in the know shit their pants, while others strutted around with massive hard-ons! It remains unclear to me who pooped and who ejaculated?
Back to the present! The Chinese government has revealed for the first time that it has nuclear submarines capable of attacking cities throughout the United States. The People’s Liberation Army Submarine Fleet boats ‘The 12 JL-2 nuclear warheads (range 8,700 miles) carried by one single Type 094 SSBN can kill and wound 5 million to 12 million Americans. Huh, some boast? Hang on…wouldn’t an unprovoked Chinese attack destroy one their best customers for cheap, crappy products? Talking about biting the hand that feeds you! By the way, since China owns swathes of properties across the USA, would not they also be destroying parts of their own property portfolio?

In an effort to save money, Danny Alexander, Treasury chief secretary has identified ‘alternatives’ for a full like-for-like replacement of the Trident nuclear deterrent. May I humbly suggest INFLATABLE nuclear submarines? Oh hang on, might not the nuclear fuel rods melt through the boat’s hull? What about dirigibles (airships), surface to air arrows and cavalry horses? When will the defence cuts cease…when we’re invaded perhaps?

Apparently there is another cold front approaching, and it is a Cold War with Russia as the Kremlin sends tens of thousands of troops to Syria to help bolster Bashar Assad’s tyrannical regime. I wonder if this Russian chess move has anything to do with the fact that America and Britain have almost agreed to openly arm the Syrian rebels? Even if you have little interest in world affairs, you must at least be interested in how your government spends YOUR tax money, for which there will be, as always, no return! America’s ‘unofficial’ foreign policy pledge to ‘democratise’ The Middle East is as much misguided as believing that oil rich Russia would allow Assad to be overthrown and thus be forced to withdraw its fleet back to the Black Sea. Given half a chance, the Ruskies will PUTIN the boot! Honestly, I really do despair at the antics of our politicians. What the world needs is ONE strong ruler with peripheral vision. I am officially throwing my hat in the ring!
