Queen urges divided Britons to 'seek common ground'


LONDON: Queen Elizabeth II has emphasised the need for Britons to return in combination to "seek out the common ground", in what has been considered as an appeal to triumph over divisions over Brexit.

Speaking to participants of the Women's Institute (WI) near her Sandringham property in jap England, the 92-year-old said other people should never lose sight of the larger image.

"Reflecting on a century of change, it is clear that the qualities of the WI endure," she said, noting the root of the institute in 1915, to encourage contributions to World War One.

"The persevered emphasis on patience, friendship, a robust community-focus, and taking into consideration the desires of others, are as necessary these days as they had been when the gang was once founded all the ones years in the past.

"Of course, each and every technology faces fresh challenges and opportunities.

"As we look for new answers in the trendy age, I for one prefer the tried and tested recipes, like talking well of each other and respecting different points of view; coming in combination to hunt out the typical ground; and never dropping sight of the larger image.

"To me, these approaches are timeless, and I commend them to everybody."


Her message, delivered in a meeting late on Thursday, comes amid intense argument in parliament about Britain's go out from the European Union, which is scheduled for March 29.


The royals generally tend to steer well clear of politics, and as head of state, the queen in particular is careful to stay neutral in public.


In her conventional Christmas broadcast to the nation remaining month, she introduced a similar message of harmony, warning towards "tribalism".


"Even with the most deeply held variations, treating the other particular person with admire and as a fellow human being is all the time a good first step towards larger figuring out," she said.
