The Queen's English refers to grammatically correct and coherent written expression in the English language. It does not refer to a specific accent, intonation or regional variation of the spoken language.
"I wish the lawmakers would write laws in the Queens English instead of this incomprehensible legalese crap"

Gramatically correct English. Plain, to the point, free of euphamisms, jargon, slang, inuendo, etc.

There are some who deride the Queen's English as too exacting, too demanding, and accuse it of being a tool to discredit those who may have a valid point, but lack formal education, and are inarticulate, and use slang and incorrect grammar. The answer, of course, would be to give everyone a formal education, not to reject the proper pronounciation of words.
I say "ignant," not "ignorant." "Ignorant" is in the Queen's Englisn, and the Queen's English is a tool of the Man to keep us down!

Dude, you have an ivy league education, you can pronounce "ignorant" correctly, so do it. It's downright insulting for a middle-class intellectual like yourself to go around mimicking the voice patterns of urban blacks on principle. It doesn't matter what color you or they are, it matters that you're the one with the college education and they're the ones who can hardly put food on their tables.

The English language as it is written and spoken in the UK.
Colour not color;
Through not thru;
Now try pronouncing aluminium without making the oooo sound!
