Exactly. That extra dough could buy a few more cruise missiles.





How much does the royal family cost each person?
Alan Reid, Keeper of the Privy Purse, said the newly released accounts show that the royal family costs each taxpayer about 65 pence per year, representing the cost of a first-class stamp.27 Jun 2017


Hardly putting anyone on the bread line?



As the Queen becomes Britain's longest-reigning monarch, new research shows that the monarchy remains popular across all parts of British society

I'm against a constitutional monarchy for democracy reason alone.
I don't even think we need a head of state same as Australia doesn't need a governer general. The Prime Minister is effectively head of state.
I'd let the queen keep whichever houses she wants and cut the purse saying pay for the ones you want to live in yourself.
I honestly think it is shameful that in the 21st century an advanced nation has head of state decided by birthright.
There is no argument which will ever sway me from that position.

Frankly I dont care either way their wealth has been accumulated over

century's of inter marriage with other royals who brought dowries and

inheritance's with them....... same as all wealthy people whether earned

or inherited.


But hey I can afford 65 pence a year ..... A pet costs more!!

As I said, the money doesn't bother me, it's a gravy train at the top anyway. It's the undemocratic nature of the constitutional monarchy I'm against.
...and you have no argumant against that, as you know, that specific democracy issue.

I'm waiting for what history says about Trump - - - and "that" election.


Well. In the Present where we are now, history says that Trump won. In the future it could say that shortly after the election symptoms of a rare phenomena, similar to the Dancing Plague of 1518, showed up. Initially labeled Trump Derangement Syndrome, this phenomena started driving people mad to the point that they lost all sense of reality, but instead of dancing themselves to death, it was a total mindbreak. Today we refer to this phenomena as, well TDS, because quiet simply it was and is the perfect name.

That is all you do.

It is not about accepting him. It is about if I agree with what he is doing for the country. Some things yes, and some things no. But to totally be against everything he has done simply because you don't like someone personally is not the path I prefer. I prefer to give people a chance. Like I did Obama. Like I did Bush. and like I did Clinton. They all failed miserably. It is time to try something new. Anything really.

This is how most rational people think.
Remember, some here are not rational.
It is hate, hate, hate no matter what someone may do.

I blame it on TDS. I think that it may be a real phenomena like the Dancing Plague of 1518.

I admit I haven't read all posts in the other thread elethia kindly directed me to but you appear to be one of the few and far between that approve of staying in the EU. Is that observation accurate?


That's because you are on a conspiracy site, most will always be anti establishment. In the real world the majority of Brits want to remain in the EU. Especially now they are being laid off or resettled in Frankfurt / Paris by their employers, or being told by the government that taxes are going to go up. To put it bluntly they have seen the light of day

What is wrong with that? So you Eletheia would drop all tariffs and let the far east steamroll over what little industry we still have? Because that WILL happen if we go down the route of 'free trade.' It's no good for the average man in the street only for the rich board members who ship everything abroad. It's crazy. We need to trade amongst our neighbours not some places on the other side of the world who we can't compete with anyway. Remember................ Chinese don't play it fair, we have no protection without our EU fortress.

I agree completely with what you've said.

The whole idea of the European Union is great.

Cheers Rhino
Good to see there is some common sense around here. We need to keep on the battle to keep us within the EU. It's not over yet. We need a new referendum to give us direction now as the politicians have given up on it and are off on their three month holidays
Let the people decide our path now politics is exhausted. Full Brexit / Weak Brexit / Forget about the madness and carry on as normal.
