Michael speaks fluent Russian, he has more Russian ancestry than the Queen (his name should be a clue).  I think that he was one of the people whose DNA was used to identify the remains of the last Romanovs.

I suppose that he is "qualified", but other than that, meh.

There are also many, many uncomfortable connections between the Russian government and the Tory Party (and Brexit) in England. There should be outrage.

He'll be played by Patrick Stewart in the movie of the week.

Why do we still have royalty again?

I suppose they are too civilized to chop off his head. Maybe the Bahamas need a new governor?

To make money off the tourists. Well that and having the royals represent the country is still better than Boris Johnson.

What and not give hime a chance to groan about being with black people?

/Not suggesting putting him up in the mansion the last royal traitor sent there got. I'm sure they can find a shack for him.

Yeah, but the Duchess of Sussex was mean to her ex boyfriend so she should be beheaded.

/also, she's Black

Well, it was Michael's wife that wore the little Blackamoor broach to some function for Harry and Meghan.   When I heard that someone in the family had made hurtful comments about the possible skin color of their first child, she was the first one to come to mind.

There are reports out there that Charles wants to drastically reduce the number of people who are considered "the Royal family."  This seems to be a good argument for that.

Definitely.

And he should start by removing his own sorry ass. Let his kid run with it.

If he cares about the monarchy, he'll do that.  But I think he cares more about himself and Camila.

Has that report been released yet?\

The one that is thought to unpick all sorts of very, very worrying chains of Russian money in the Tory donor system?

It's getting silly at this point.

Tourists go to see the castles and shiat. It's not like the Queen stands around signing autographs,

Help me out here. It seems like you're trying to argue that a.) Putin and Putin's Russia get blamed for lots of stuff that they actually aren't responsible for, therefore b.) Putin and Putin's Russia are blameless of any accusation anyone could level at them. Is that what you're saying? Or did I get it wrong?

He's the spitting image of Tsar Nicky II. I mean, they could be twins.

He's Princess Michael of Kent's husband, subby.

It was supposed to be released before the election before this past election, right?

They're both called Michael???

Yup!

And it's not like there's some mammoth redaction process required - it was written for public consumption in the first place.
