If you are basing the Quote clue on the lyrics of "Rule Britannia", then the words are Britannia RULE the waves". There is never an "s" to make RULES. A frequent error, which used to be drilled into every British schoolchild.

No-good Yank here, even I knew that one. Of course the seas belong to the US Navy now, but that's a different matter entirely - partly because it comprises a force powerful enough to destroy the surface of the planet seven times over. Also because we keep crashing into things. I feel the latter is a greater threat than the former.

I kept reading "another word for wrench" as "another word for wench", kept trying slut and wondering why it didnt work

Also worth pointing out that there has only been ONE Queen of the UK(sic) named Elizabeth. Elizabeth 1st was Queen of England, prior to the creation of the United Kingdom.

It doesn't actually say 'Queen of the UK'. I just read it as a Queen somehow associated with the UK, be that England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Great Britain or the UK as a whole.

The Angel is a small area in the Borough of Islington in London - remembered from the London edition of the Monopoly board game. It's also the name of the pub in the same area.

Question for someone more versed in English/British history than I - there were not two queen Marys - Bloody Mary and the wife of William III? Does one not count for some reason or is it just that the answer doesn't fit the solution? Nice quiz BTW - I love these decoder quizzes
