The Non-Existent Queen

Hows this for mind numbing insensitivity

The assembly of HMS Queen Elizabeth is almost complete ahead of her launch next year. The aircraft carrier is being assembled at Rosyth Dockyard in Fife.
Named in honour of Elizabeth I of England, she will be the second Royal Navy vessel to bear the name HMS Queen Elizabeth.

Whatever happened to the UK ? Elizabeth 1 of England was never the Queen of Scotland. Why then should the Scottish taxpayer fund the building of a ship to be named after a non-existent maonarch? http://www.thecourier.co.uk/news/scotland/rosyth-workers-sailing-ahead-with-hms-queen-elizabeth-carrier-construction-1.112945
