    What exactly is the purpose of these Royal tours – a holiday disguised as work?

    I think they’re just great.

    And who cares what you care about?

    To show Australians and New Zealanders their future King I believe.

    To be born a king is surely old skool clap trap.
    Shouldn’t an Empire chose their ruler based on if he’s the right man for the job?
    Not just son of a previous one.
    Without the abdication of Edward VIII the bloodlines would be so different and Wills wouldn’t exist.
    Posh girl from Berkshire Kate would be like her sister. Not the Queen.

    It’s my tiny act of rebellion. If everyone did it, they would fill the newspapers with something important.

    EDIT: or more likely, some different celebrities.

    Democratically choose someone to govern our country and represent us on the world stage?

    Do you really think that gets you the “right man for the job”?

    I’m going to have to take your word for it as I’ve never given it much thought, you obviously take a keen interest in the subject.

    But do you realise how much it costs to keep them “employed”.
    Windsor castle burnt. That is the queen’s gaff. If your house was to burn the insurance would cover it.
    Queenies house burnt down. 60 million pounds to fix!!! Queenie said she’d pay a bit, open up Buck Palace and start to pay tax! She had never paid any tax until that fire in 1992. Others would be in jail for tax evasion but not Lizzie. Everyone loves Lizzie.

    Graham has a point though, Lizzie is well down my list for the guillotine.

    Scroungers living off the state with no intention of working. Why hasn’t IDS got his sights on them? Oh, yeah…

    I have no problem with them whatsoever. I would hate to be a royal. Although they get to hang out in some pretty special houses / palaces, they don’t really own them do they. They can’t sell them and spend it all on coke and ho’s. In effect, we own those buildings and the only thing wrong is that we should have access to more of them for free. They as people are owned, I’d hate that life. They have to work until they die in the public eye and as an entity surely they bring in more in tourism revenue than they cost us in tax.

    They have to work…

    Yeah, right.

    I’d happily keep paying the 53p a year if it keeps annoying people that much. πŸ™‚

    My biggest problem with the royal family is that they give Nicholas witchell an excuse to exist.

    Can you also pay the 53ps of the millions of people who don’t want to pay it.

    (Does the 53p include all the hidden costs that aren’t published?)

    This is one of those topics that shows me how different the views many other people have are from mine. I find it astonishing that people could possibly think the concept of royalty is anything other than abhorrent. There’s worse things in the world obviously but the idea of royalty is so obviously wrong to me as to be past debate. Cannot believe we are still subjugated in this way.

    Nope just the sovereign payment not the security and all the other stuff we do for them.
    I imagine trooping the colour is a bit pricey πŸ˜‰

    Agreed, I’ve noticed that they are now calling him Nick Witchell which doesn’t fit with his stuffy persona.

    Will their son be the last King ❓

    Will the future be elected “King” ❓
