    Apparently Queen Victoria disliked meeting politicians so much that she insisted that they held their meetings standing up. Even today I believe the Privy Council meets standing up. It's supposed to make for very short meetings...

    I offer no evidence to back up this claim. I could be totally wrong, but as I've just gone though a long irrelavent (to me) meeting and I can see the logic.
