about the people's respect for the

Britain during the war when he
had so many offers. He would

Although it will be a long
time before Britons will feel
that anyone has taken the place
of King George, Blake believes,
Englishmen have every respect
for Queen Elizabeth. And "it's
kind of a superstition in Britain
that Britain always prospers un
