There is, in the UK Government, quite a lot
of preparations for the death of Queen
Elizabeth II. There is a detailed set of
plans, codenamed Operation London Bridge
part of which requires a civil servant to
inform the prime minister that London Bridge

needs another, complementary, set of plans codenamed
Operation QEII to be put into effect in
case London Bridge collapses.
Operation London Bridge

||Or perhaps you could call the london bridge collapse
operation My Fair Lady.
||This reminds me of the Stirling work done by "Inspector
Sands" at large public facilities in the UK, no doubt he'd be
on the case too.
||Of course we all know she's a cadaver that's been propped up
with silver and gold for years now.
||no idea, I bow to your knowledge.
||Wonder what the coded terms are if something
Charles and he goes first? I'm going suggest "The

||This one is named after Queen Elizabeth I.
||Actually, there's at least four other Queen Elizabeth II
bridges, three in the UK.
||Nice to know that the British government has preparations for all the important things. I'm sure the Afghans that they left behind in Kabul will be immensely gratified.
