The Queen does have blood from the House of Alpins, so she is a cousin to Scottish Royalty, much better than the House of Stewards of the House of Hanover which had no relation to those people whatsoever. Although, I hate monarchy, so who is keeping account?


I know this thread started out about the queen having German blood not her being a dictator (which she secretly is). However I see that many English have taken offense to her German blood line..... one Brit didn't even know of her background. Recheck the thread.

The queen of England is 88 years old.

Again, so what? Is she still capable of doing the job? Yes or no?
Some people at 88 could do it just fine.
Some people at 55 could not.
Show us why she can't do the job anymore and I'll say she should step down as well.

You can't just 'pass' someone over. He can abdicate, but this fiasco surely has gone on long enough. They should all be stripped of titles and most of their ill-gotten gains and made to live like everyone else.

I can't believe that our so-called civilized social constructs in this day and age still seem to sometimes require this sort of thing.


A BIG STAR for you sir,

I know from time to time we disagree but this time I agree with you!

so much hate in this OP .. why?

the German queen thing has been done a million times , i know you hate you lost the referendum but its time to man up

I for one am proud that we stand together still and it may teach others a thing or to about what an evolving democracy looks like.. of course its not perfect but together we are stronger..

i have no love for the monarchy but your figures and statistics are outdated and debunked , i agree we shouldn't fund her, but they do bring a lot of money into the country via tourism etc.

Q


If you hate in my post it is because that is what you see. I am not being hateful.

For the record, the OP was not even written by anyone British,they have started several threads relating to this very same subject and IMO are just trying to collect stars and flags.

With that in mind, nothing to do with anyone within the British Isles being a sore looser over the referendum, just someone antagonising the whole situation to suit their own AGENDA.

I have no use for royals and no understanding of why the UK want to keep them on the payroll like they do. However, it's their country and they can do as they wish.

if you don't like me that is fine. I will not be losing any sleep over it. And if you don't like my thread you can leave. No one is keeping you here against your will. You stay here to fight and argue.

Thank you in the name of Jesus Christ!

The Royals cost us 70pence maximum per year each...

The amount that comes in through tourism to see the Royals far exceeds that amount...


The Queen isn't a dictator either...
This thread is a joke imo!!!

I'm a Royalist and love the British Royal Family, and the traditions that come with having a Royal Family. Having no monarch would mean we would have had "President Blair or Cameron" and that's not something I would like to see here.

Some facts about the British Royal Family;


The Queen has published her financial accounts, which show that the Royal Family cost the taxpayer 52p per person last year. But the figure, published in the public finances annual report, does not include the cost of providing security and police protection for members of the monarchy.


The British tourism agency has reported that the royal family generates close to 500 million pounds, or about $767 million, every year in tourism revenue, drawing visitors to historic royal sites like the Tower of London, Windsor Castle, and Buckingham Palace. The country's tourism agency says that of the 30 million foreign visitors who came to Britain in 2010, 5.8 million visited a castle .

I'd say they were worth keeping as the revenue they attract far outweighs the cost of having them.

The problem with that is that very same country - or group of countries - is historically responsible for much of the political mess we find ourselves in today. They have so much to answer for. Their monarchy still has it's tentacles in many of our countries and why/ It's a tiny, little, insignificant speck on the globe. A faded and almost bizarrely once strong power.

We need to change the world and we need to do it by dismantling the old way of things. Scotland could have started something huge and chose to go the easy, safe path.

This monarchy will try to use the Cambridge babies as leverage for some sort of future legitimacy, but hopefully they will just end up like most other monarchies.

Is it they or the castles and palaces that generate the revenue? Castles and palaces which incidentally were built and/or paid for from ill-gotten taxes from a long-past (thank goodness) era.

Well the queen was born in England...

There is at least 6 generations that are English...
German blood has nothing to do with it...

Ouch, BasementWarrior, I normally rate you but what's with the Anti English rhetoric today. So what if we have a Royal Family as head of our state, does not have any effect on you guys over the pond.

Its ok if you don't like our Royal Family, no one is asking you to, but at the end of the day, we respect your democracy, show a little more civility towards ours

How weak is your country if you feel the UK monarchy is holding you back? Lol.
I do not support a constitutional monarchy but consider it as a mild distraction, I feel for your poor nation waiting for us to get rid of them before you can grow
