But this last one I will...
I AM British my friend, born and raised from year 0 till I was 25.
I was heavely involved in British politics in the late 70's into the 80's.
The main reason I had to leave was the British authorities didn't like my style of politics. I didn't leave cause I didn't LOVE my country. I am a political exile I guess you could say.
Where does your alegence lie? With your ruling elites or your fellow working man (I assume you're working class, if not then that explains a lot)?
Do you really believe what you are saying, or do you just enjoy arguing silly points with people?
Yes the queen has some power of decision in wars with foreign nations as the leader of the commonwealth, BUT that power is only a formality, if her decisions are not excepted by parliament she can be ousted. The only thing she really does is the annual speach that opens parliament, after that she goes back to her privaledged pampered life and government makes the decisions.
Sooo I doubt very much she will EVER weild her power against any governmental choices, cause she could end up poor like the rest of us.
I have every right to complain about MY country whether I still live there or not. I have family and friends that do and I care about what happens to them.
And anyway I look at things on a global level, I am concerned with more than just what is happening in my own back yard.
It's not compaining, it's called questioning the excepted norms that we all have deal with cause they suck and hurt the common man and need changing!

Quick question Wasp, is it right for Charles to go to Cambridge with the grades he got, denying someone else a place?
I applied for a bet (which i won!) but I still dont think that you shoud get into a prestigious organisation simply because of your parenting.
The Prince, who had already passed six O Levels, took his A Levels in July 1967, the first Heir to The Throne to take such examinations. He was awarded a grade B in history and a C in French, together with a distinction in an optional special history

There, 6 O levels and a B and a C at A level and an distinction in an optional special module.
No one without royal blood could get into Cambridge witht those grades in 1967. It is disgusting and elitist and denied someone with real talent a place.

The Prince of Wales had better be careful, he may end up like Princess Dianna....all banged up on the side of the road. This is total Treason, here England is fighting radical islam across the globe and the heir to the throne pushes Islam down the throats of us "commoners"
I agree with alot of the English folk in here, Royalty is not what it used to be and its time for these people to get a job.
