Much as I agree with you, it probably turns out they bring in more tourist money than we shell out?Is it time.to archive the monarchy?
How many millions.per year does England lay for pomp and circumstance? Is it worth it?
If you look at the recent jubilee, that tells a story ...And what has the monarchy done in the past 50 years that you consider "worth it"
The consensus seems to be there would be a 'Head of State', currently not the Prime Minister ... there would have to be major constitutional reform.But why a president?
Lol...must be... I don't think I can name half the monarchies in this world nor their history or current queen....but then I can't fly.a helicopter or use a sextant either.Yes I have heard. I do try to keep up. That it seems is the difference between us.
You are mistaken, or looking at the topic with a very different frame of reference.
Baha'u'llah wrote to Queen Victoria and praised her for actions she had taken and offered her reign would last.
100% with you there.One planet one people please.
Hello Tony. I am sorry that my comment was not made more tactfully. I was referring to a period of long ago and long before Queen Victoria, when an English monarch died and the Scottish Royal family took over. Replaced much later by Dutch then Germans and so on.
A very large part of Britain both physically and culturally is Scottish and Welsh. Feelings do get hurt when that point is ignored.
To refer to Britain as England is akin to calling the U.S.A. New England or referring to Germany as Prussia. It is wrong and may be considered impolite, although clearly that was not the intention here.
100% with you there.
RJM, I am sorry that your post went down this particular side road. Certainly not my intention.
