I will assume for the purposes of composing a response to your post that you are serious to some extent about the power of the Royal family , if not
the utterly insane detail of your post.
I personaly have no belief in the Royal family as a powerhouse. They have a lot of clout in general, as do most Royal families which remain in some
way on the throne. This cannot be denied, and even though we do not live in a society here in Britain which revolves heavily around our monarchy ,
that does not prevent many among us having a soft spot, or even a resolve of respect and admiration for our Royal family .
Those who have not accurately assessed the financial situtation of the Royal family claim that they are a drain on the taxpayer, and that the only
reason they are still around is because they have power that we do not know about.
Anyone however who cares to look at the amount of tourism they attract, and the amount of charity they command and commit to good causes, will see
without fail that they infact contribute more than they take from the British taxpayer, by a fair and helpful margin.
The Queen herself , when a younger woman, drove ambulances during the second world war. She was not huddled in a bunker miles underground, nor was
she constantly surrounded by human sheilds. She drove through bombing runs, across rubble strewn roads within spitting distance of UXBs , and shied
from none of this. In short she behaved very much like a citizen would. Doing her bit. The Princes , William and Harry both have had training in
combat, and Harry in particular gets stuck right in, just like a trooper of the line. When the going gets tough, the Royals dig in and fight like dogs
, just like every other person they are allied with.
If our nations politicians had half the bottle, and a quater of the understanding of the best of the Royals , then I would have thought that this
nation would be in a much better shape than it is.
However, when it comes to things like the world cup, it is never about bid quality , or the political power of the individuals called to represent
the nation, but about the political and the financial effects of refusing one bid over another. It is in essence about leverage. Some would say that
the Queen, if she was a reptilian (which is quite insulting to me as a proud British man) or a member of the NWO would have the clout to see bids like
that accepted.... I say this is fair evidence then that she is not either of those things. She is not even one of the richest people in the world, her
personal fortune is DWARFED by many bankers , oil tycoons, entrepenuers and so on. Her financial and political clout are limited indeed in comparison
with the likes of the Rockerfellers and the select commitee of evil that we KNOW exists.
Before throwing this sort of nonsense about in earnest, one might find it prudent to observe the facts, both the financial and the political, of who
is who in world power. There are men in this world who say jump, and entire states take to thier heels and bound into the air . The Queen, the
Princes... these are not that calibur of person. Frankly I see love in the eyes of our Queen, and the heirs to the throne. I do not see control. These
people you must remember have had no real power for longer than many care to remember, and accusing them of powermongering , is like accusing a serial
murderers grandmother of gross negligence in having the child which grew to bare the killer to term and deliver him unto the world.
