The attitude of saying that we can justify the expense of keeping the Monarchy going simply because our 'money gets wasted on so many other things
through the government', is the exact reason we the British public are rinsed year in, year out, all through various taxes and so on. They know they
can get away with it, we're simply so used to having money taken away from us and wasted on rubbish.
IF we got rid of the queen and her motley crew of a family, the buildings and palaces will still stand. Tourists can still go see them and take
photos. After all, if the royal family are apparently caught up with so many diplomatic missions every year, its not like they'd be available for the
general public to see that often anyway.
Its down right hypocritical for us to go off into other countries, fighting wars for democracy, under the flag of a Monarchy...you know, the queen who
we didn't elect...and don't get me started about the house of lords.
I'm a strong patriot of Britain, and I'm proud to be British. But not because I get the well being of dishing out money to keep some fat cats in
good health and luxuary. They are so out of touch, its an embarrassment to have that represent this country.
Heres a crazy idea, we update this country, clear out all the crap ie the Royal family, house of lords, cut down MP's pay packets, put in stronger
laws to prevent corruption, ditch council tax, and nationalize important services like British gas and water to prevent greedy corporations from
making their billion pound a year profits, at the expense of someone who struggles to afford some of the bare essentials for day to day living.
