York should have a long-pig roast, to avoid all of the association.

Who are these "good people of York"?  The only non-bastard I can think of off the top of my head was a fictional character: Isaac of York.

Okay, Guy Fawkes was from York, I can see why they don't want to be associated with something so horrible as Prince Andrew.

Here's a solution.  I guess it's just "tradition/history" but why England still has a king/queen
I don't get.  They really don't do anything but suck off of the teat of the British taxpayers.

While even that's a stretch (IIRC the royal family costs each Briton like a quid annually) they are useless and should be, I guess, let go? Do you fire a figure head, or just stop talking about them?

From the Royal Family Financial Report:

"The total Sovereign Grant for 2020-21, including the dedicated amount for Reservicing, amounted to £85.9m (2019-20: £82.4m), equivalent to £1.29 per person in the UK.

The £85.9m is made up of a core grant of £51.5m which funds official travel, property maintenance and the operating costs of The Queen's household, and an additional dedicated amount for Reservicing of £34.4m. The core grant equates to 77p per person in the UK."

Truly an insurmountable farking burden. I don't know how they survive....

To be fair... the money the state earns from tourists who go there just to see royal stuff makes up for it, and the programmes the various royal orgs run put some of their income to good use.

But yeah, they still hold a lot of income-producing assets that should belong to the public just because "god said so".

Maybe someone who knows royalty better can tell me, is he just the Duke of the city or the entire shire? I am descended from immigrants from various towns in Yorkshire. Funniest and closest to royalty is the Nevilles. Apparently the family seat of my branch is Snape Castle, which goes to show that Neville owned Snape all along.

With the tide turning, I doubt "The Monarchy" will live very long after Queen Elizabeth dies. They really don't like Charles that much and it seems like a lot of people hate Camilla. They will not be popular and that may deplete the public love affair with the Monarchy to the point that it just shrivels up and dies. The Queen has Queened for the majority of most living Britain's lives and Charles will never be able to bank much of his mother's respect. I don't think it will be quick or tidy but I think the Queen's death will be the death note for the Monarchy.

I think, (but I'm flailing about for recollection of my HS history), that up until the Victorian era, York was it's own realm under "Great Britain", and Yorkshire was the realm, with the city of York as the largest or principal city.  So the entire shire.

Think of NY state and NY city in the United States.

Rachael Maskell, who is the public representative for York Central, has brought forward the "Removal of Titles Bill," after polls showed that 80 percent of its citizens want to be freed of their link with the shamed royal, who has refused to stop using the title, which was given to him as a wedding present in 1986.

Do... do they realize that they don't get to pick their royals? That's kind of a defining characteristic of the system. He's Duke of York by order of the Queen, and that's that.
 
2022-06-22 1:35:04 PM  
It's hard for common folk to understand the magnitude of such consequences as being asked to stop using a title, in light of past pedophilic transgressions.

I'm not sure if the monarchy itself is in danger in the foreseeable future, but I can see the number of countries outside the United Kingdom itself recognizing the monarchy plunging in the near future, sort of like what has already happened in Barbados.  The monarchy is just too identified with colonialism at this point.

I think it's safe to say she's been queen for the majority of all living Britains' lives.  You'd have to be older than 140 otherwise.  And like WWII, she will be remembered as "the last good one."  Charles will never get the stink of his piss poor treatment of Diana off of him.  The queen may have fumbled that one too but it's chiefly because of Charles that things got so bad.  Every time we see Queen Camilla, it will be a reminder of how the rightful queen was driven from her position only to be replaced with this perpetual Yoko Ono character.  Diana's sons, especially exiled Harry, will also bring to mind her unfair treatment at the hands of the current king.
