Politician: Queen should move to Bromley bungalow
Feb 7, 2013, 12:02 GMT
A politician thinks Queen Elizabeth should move to a bungalow in Bromley.
Green Party member Jenny Jones - who came third in the London Mayoral election last year - has suggested the British monarch should consider moving to a bungalow in Bromley or Sutton in south London, giving up her palatial homes.
She wrote on Twitter: 'Have started a blog on why the Queen should live in a comfy bungalow in Bromley or Sutton. We expect too much of her. (sic)'
The 63-year-old former Deputy Mayor of London, who resides in Southwark, south London, added: 'Am not sure yet who'll publish the blog.'
The tweet received many responses, including one suggesting the queen should move into a retirement home.
Jenny replied: ' Yes. Somewhere with [Prince] Philip.'
The London Assembly member later told one follower that her comment wasn't intended to be 'cruel'.
She added: 'I didn't mean to be cruel. She and Philip could choose a suburb, obviously.'
The politician was invited to visit the queen's home, Buckingham Palace, in 2004 when she was named one of the 200 Women of Achievement.
