22 Minutes: 'Rex Murphy' Rants About Queen's Diamond Jubilee

The only thing better than a good Rex Murphy rant is Mark Critch imitating one on "This Hour Has 22 Minutes."

On this week's show, Critch does a take on the curmudgeonly commentator's thoughts on the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

While Murphy spent time in the U.K. studying at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, on Critch's estimation his years there didn't foster a love of the Queen or monarchy.

And the Conservatives' recent efforts at bolstering feeling for the royals among Canadians don't seem to have reached Murphy's heart either. "Stephen Harper has gone royalty mental," says Murphy in the clip.

It seems nothing raises the ire, and eyebrows, of Murphy like the Queen.

This Hour Has 22 Minutes airs Tuesdays at 8:30 pm on CBC TV. Catch more clips of the show on Facebook and Twitter.
