Good.

Gave the "royal blood" a bit of a break from inbreeding. AKA chlorine in the royal gene pool.

Rent Party: BronyMedic: I've taken my understanding of royalty from Game of Thrones and World of Warcraft. Did they put his head on a pike, and parade it down Tower road?

They used to. They were so pissed at Cromwell after the restoration, they dug up his rotting corpse cut it's head off, and stuck it on a pike in front of the palace for 30 or so years.

I'd like to see this guy raise an army and invade England. The problem with the inbred twats that sit on the throne now is that there is no chance of someone else ever taking it from them.


He does look markedly less inbred, doesn't he?

Mattyb710: DerAppie: Complaining that someone got screwed out of something 500 years ago would open the floodgate to a lot of similar complaints.

But it worked out so well for Israel!

Yeah, but attacking the commonwealth with a bunch of petty criminals doesn't really work out too well. The Nazis learned that in WWII.

The people will flock to their rightful King.


Yeah, right. ask the Duke of Monmouth how that worked out

Well, monarchy is a wholly arbitrary form of government, it's "these are the rules, for no other reason than God and I said so", so why shouldn't it be decided on killing and bullshiat?

/A wise man had this to say about it, "I compare it to something kept behind a curtain, about which there is a great deal of bustle and fuss, and a wonderful air of seeming solemnity, but when, by an accident, the curtain happens to open and the company see what it is, they burst into laughter"
//I will never be able to understand how a people as intelligent and politically savvy as the Brits have been conned into keeping the royals around for this long

The English Monarchy has, since the time of the Saxons and before, been a collaboration between king and people. You should watch the BBC documentary "Monarchy" for a (fairly over-generalized) overview. Fascinating stuff.

And don't be hatin' on The Queen. Elizabeth II is a nice lady who didn't ask for that shiat and has done her job better than the vast majority of people in this world. Or, she could just retire, give up her title and Civil List income, and stop paying the government farktons of cash every year out of her personal income from her ancestral inheritance.

Go ahead, Brits. Fire her. Good luck with the collapse. Or seize her personal property, and good luck with your little experiment in Socialism. You may want to talk to Russia for protips.

This.

As government types go, the Queen is awesome. She's done a great job over her lifetime and is consistently on the ball.

And she likes horses. Automatic plus in my book. ;)

bingethinker: Trying to nall down the exact day of a child's conception with the technology available 500 years ago is nonsensical.


There is always the old standby though.

If her husband was gone to war for several years without returning to visit, and she had a kid anytime after the first 10-11 months of his deployment.

It's a pretty safe bet it isn't his.

If they actually said that, they are guilty of peddling some weapons grade bullshiat.

...so she gives money to the legitimate government that she didn't earn, and she only has because her blood soaked ancestors said they were ordained by God. Consider me very unimpressed.

Oh, the old lady's not in any danger of losing her cushy position, the Brits aren't quite radical enough to do that, and certainly not radical enough to be able to call themselves socialists.

At the time of Prince William's wedding last year a buddy of mine asked me if I, as an immigrant from the UK who has lived in North America for many years, had watched it and if so, how I'd felt about it. I told him that when I was growing up in Britain there was a feeling as if you were part of one great big family living on a relatively small island (especially since the UK was far more homogeneous then), and the Queen was the matriarch of that family. I added that although I thought the Royals themselves were mainly comprised of useless parasites, I still had an innate idea that they were part of this extended family and as such that one just had to put up with them and were naturally going to take an interest in their activities whatever they did. I'm only mentioning all this to give an explanation to people in the US and Canada who have a hard time imagining why we would put up with such an obviously useless parcel of spongers.

Perhaps the greatest advantage of the monarchy is that it unites all (or at least, most) of the disparate and squabbling segments of any society behind the head of state, because he or she is apolitical. Compare that to the situation in the present day US, where allegiance to the head of state is merely conditional on whether or not he happens to belong to the right political party, and if they don't -- wouldn't it be nice if they were assassinated or at the very least impeached?, etc.

Man - you really think that. Huh.

She owns vast amounts of real estate, which she rents out. Her family got it through marriage, war, and various means. Just like any other family inheritance, but on a larger scale. And what does she do with all that money? Buy small islands? Hookers and blow? No. She gives most of it to the government.

I love it when people call her a parasite because of the Civil List. The Civil List (Sovreign Grant, as of next year) amounts to about £8.5 million. The Queen paid the government About £211 million in 2010. Now I call that a bargain.

But, if you think it's a raw deal for the country, tell ya what - give me all your money every payday, and I'll gladly pay you back 4% of it while calling you a parasite. Sound reasonable?
