    The Queens already had her head chopped off before? Shes doing a good job to cover it up if she has <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt; <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    Nah, you want the royals. They bring huge amounts of £ to the tourist industry and they arent just a load of money grabbers either - they all pay tax now and the "A" list royals have been shortened to only immediate family

    Just done a banging shit. Won't flush. You might have to push it down

    lol thats what i was gonna say!!! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt; <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt; to you too!

    i think they're pretty shitey really, they're just not that interesting and what do they do? sit and make politically incorrect comments on their yachts and travel kenya (albeit not the same people and not all at once), and pad out the pages of hello and the daily mail, and have loads of money for doing bugger all.

    only good point is for the tourism thing. as you can tell, im not exactly a royalist <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt; my dad and his mum are terrible though, god just another of the tremendously annoying things my poor mum has to put up with! a whooole other topic tho...

    Burn baby burn!

    I'm a royalist, having a monarch defines us as a nation. If we didnt we would become a republic like the USA, and I dont want that, and I dont think many other people want the system they have either.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    we are already known as the 51st stae of America considering we r up there ass, y would we want a system like theirs? The only reason the royals are still around is that we are stuck so much on history that we cant get away from it, and also the royal family are the first celebrities we ever had. and about the America states thing, I know there are 52, Alaska and Hawaii are recignised as states but not on the flag so technically we are the 53rd state! oh and g'day

    The royals may suck a bit, But the queen and her mum have been pretty well behaved, and William is quite nice looking!!! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/wink.gif"&gt;

    no, i believe australia is actually a british colony, not vice-versa.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Even if we ditched the Royals, the tourists would still come here for the history, so I don't see the problem.

    My vote - ditch the royals <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    i thouht hawaii was teh 51st state of america.
    anyway, im totally anti royal or whatever the big posh word is. i reckon itd b soo much better if it was more like the american system of everything, such as healthcare, education, tax, presidents, jobs, etc. things would be so much simpler and efficient and we wouldnt have all those huge fuckin NHS waiting lists and all. but that'll never happen as long as the royals are around

    In a survey recently (can't remember stats) more than half Brits wanted the Royals to stay.

    --Just thought I'd add that!
    I'm not particularly fussed either way, but it's very traditional and part of our heritage. But how much money to they cost a year? Can't remember.

    no doubt an exhaustive survey carried out on all member of the royals family <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Look into these tired eyes. See something you might recognise.

    Very droll.

    I wonder if they asked Camilla what she thought?!

    Well personally i think the only people that like the monarchy are the tourists.

    They seem to think it's a novel idea to have big palaces and King's and Queen's.

    Basically all the monarchy are is just a big advert for the UK tourist authority to keep the gullible tourists coming to good old Blighty, and visit their palaces and gaze in amazement when they see a member of the Royal Family.

    Maybe in 'Ye Olden Days' the monarchy was well respected because they had more involvement with the people, and some people want to keep that link and tradition with the old days.

    Nowdays they don't and the gap's a whole lot bigger even though Lizzy has tried to become more approachable and 'normal'and relate to the people, so she can get a bigger 'pay rise' in the royal list ....... it's a bit late for that !! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

    The thing is that the Royals are LIVING history and the Yanks just love that (and they have all the money) .... the Royals bring in much, much more money than it costs to support them so, for the sake of thousands of jobs in the tourism trade, I think we should keep 'em.

    i think she is a bloddy waste of space, but thats what makes england a lil bit more unique than most place the fact we have a history!, and always will!,

    a stroke of luck or a gift from god?the hand of fate or devils claws?from below or saints above?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    must agree wit u babe! the only bloody time the queen speaks 2 us all is at crimbo!!! lol

    50 states

    We have 50 states, Alaska being 49th and Hawaii being 50, they each have a star on our flag. Each time the US gets a new state a new flag is issued on 4 July of the next year (our independence day) I never did understand the whole Royal thing? I mean, they don’t do much now do they? American’s love royals I think because we don’t have our own. Just be happy you have more than two strong political parties. That’s what really sucks!

    I think the whole Royalty Thing provides the UK Tourism Related Businesses with more free worldwide advertising then would otherwise be possible. Without them we'd probabaly loose a few Billion in Tourism each year.

    I wonder why people look for old threads to reply to do they think "oh I'll search for a thread slagging off the Queen so I can reply to it" or what?
