I dunno, is cultural heritage REALLY a good enough reason to give a family free money?
Think of it as a national park that walks and talks and does things that end up in The Enquirer.

That's a gross oversimplification of what is going on here. The Monarchy is not just our cultural heritage, for many people it is part of their current national identity. Removing them would be a bruising and deeply dividing experience for the country.

They also have a lot of support, they are there not least because the British want them there.

Yup, national identity is an important way of getting the public to care about the land they live on. The dwindling feeling of national identity is a large reason for the careless, violent attitude of a lot of young people.

The royals also bring a lot of money in to the country from foreigners.

I am an anti-royalist on principle, and bow to no Duchess of Cambridge, but would absolutely consent to be absolutely ruled by this woman:



Your move, England.

I suppose it is appropriate in a thread like this that people are having a (nationalist) dick-waving contest.
It was only a matter of time.

Venomous, how about the Belgians, then? Surely, we can mock them?

Ah, I knew I butchered the English language again. It deserved it, it knows what it has done !

We can mock the Flemish Belgian.

Can we start with the Caprice des Dieux? Parliaments are so much fun.

Yeah, the anti royals shout loudly, but they are--currently-- the minority. The Royal Family could do with being further trimmed back, although this has incresinly happened in recent years anyway, the more minor ones cut adrift as it were.

Anyway, I have more respect for many of them than I do for a lot of our elected leaders. Andrew dodged Exocets in the South Atlantic, Harry's fought in Afghanistan, William's a search and rescue pilot. Frankly they've served Britain more than most of us have. Not forgetting the Queen who's given decades of service.

And I think even those countries who don't have an actual monarchy often aren't any more egalitarian. America was led by a Bush, followed by a Clinton, followed by a Bush, then almost followed by another Clinton, and whilst I'm not up to speed on current predictions for the next election, is it still possible it might end up Jeb vs Hilary?

We tried it a few centuries ago, we invited the Royals back a few decades later...
