This thread goes to show how un-informed some people are about the Royal Family and the benefit of having them, of course, they are part of the fictional illuminate, they are also Nazis and wedding is just a set up event to distract us from something terrible....


I expect tomorrow i'll read a thread about Prince Williams being an alien or something
and its already been claimed that he is the antichrist, but then again isn't everyone?


Anyway, i will leave it at that, the plants in my back garden would give me a more educated conversation.


What benefits. I asked you to provide proof, provide it. Like I said you're engaging in fallacy. You think because Royals live in great British buildings and architecture that attracts alot of tourists and boost the economy, that it's the Royals and having a Monarchy responsible for this. Fortunately most people with a head on their shoulders know differently. The tourism would exist without Royals, as it does the world over.

Furthermore, even if the argument was true, which there's no evidence to say it is - it wouldn't justify their presence.

Another point; I don't believe in the Illuminati, i don't believe they're Nazis in the traditional sense and I don't believe the wedding is a distraction from something terrible. I believe it is what it is. A couple of extremely wealthy scumbags, responsible for the misery of billions, being promoted and championed by a subservient middle class of pro-establishment half wits.

The majority of the world in poverty, I hope you're proud of your bloody self. You should be ashamed.

And that's granted there's a pub in town still open. The vast majority are closing down since the smoking ban.

Makes me laugh how you people complain about their wealth and how they cost us too much, the royal family costs us, the taxpayers just 75p per YEAR, just look how much money is wasted by being part of the European Union, how much the government wastes on, yet you have the nerve to come here and shout the odds about the royal family costing you money
cant afford 75p / year? doubt it! I would allways go for our current system rather than having a President Blair or President brown because that would be the alternative.

oh, and you should also learn how much weight our passport bears, we are one of the only few countries that can travel more or less anywhere in the world with our passport, that is because of our queen, and that is a FACT, if you disagree you need to go away and read up about it.

Here is an example of the crap floating around the Canadian media. I almost peed myself when this made the news. LOL!

89 year old woman scolds prince William in letter and gets response.

Will it ever end?


I guess some people do care.

Oh and some more facts that you probably didn't realise.... the queen pays taxes, taxes which infact far exceed the expenses they get, the queen gets about £35 million a year, she pays back AT LEAST that in taxes and she doesnt take a salery either, she acctually ends up pumping more money in than she takes out, if you bother doing all the math and calculations.

I as an English woman who doesn't have a lot of time for hierarchy, yet I much prefer having our royals than the American President who I am led to believe costs more to support.

Does it really matter how many British people care about this couple getting married, two people in love, one ,not by choice, born to pomp and splendour ruled by protocol.

Who wants to be part of the European Union?

I don't care how many pence these scumbags cost. They're responsible for the misfortune of millions. My family were literally slaves, because of the Monarchy. The majority are poor, because of the Monarchy. Millions are starving, because of the Monarchy. You people want to take every positive of Monarchy and ignore all the negative.

The Queen is a fat pig and I'd love to give her an uppercut.

Why don't you tell everyone about the true Monarchy? How they stifled workers rights and oppressed the poor majority? Tell us about eugenics, land theft and the rape of entire nations and peoples? The theft of gold and diamonds, tell us about those. You think the current Royals hate their family history and the actions of their elders? Of course not.

What have the Royals done, with all their influence if not power(we're supposed to pretend they have none, right, they can only get 3 billion people to watch a wedding, supposedly) to benefit Britain? Have they done anything to promote Democracy? Anything to promote Socialism, oppose wars etc? Anything to stop racism, sexism and general bigotry? Have they done anything at all?

Nope. And if they have it's PR, usually engaged in long after movements were already established and they were forced to change their views, rather than actually doing anything good of their own free will. Kate Middleton is just being used to promote the idea the Monarchy has caught up with us, modernised and allowed common folk into their little clique. Most people don't buy their public relations normal people act. A normal person would have give up the stolen artifacts and gold and put it to good use long ago.

You probably take a pack lunch of Brie, Pâté and prawn sandwiches to work. I don't expect you to understand.

The Queen was forced to pay income tax. It wasn't a good will act, support for the Monarchy was at an all time low and people were ready to well and truly get rid of the old leech. And opening up Buckingham Palace was another PR act brought about at the same time.

Find me one independent study to show the Monarchy brings decent economical gains. And I don't want to see any half arsed reports relating to people visiting the Palace or other such places. But actual economical gains dependent upon their existence.

More PR stunts from the Royal family

William’s brother Harry infamously revealed his political sympathies when he went to a party dressed as a NAZI.

He claimed it was just a “joke”—but he has since been caught calling people “Pakis” and “ragheads”.

Prince Phillip, the grandfather of the scrounger clan, is also an infamous RACIST.

He once told some students in China they’d go “slitty-eyed” if they stayed.

And meeting a black man from Birmingham, he asked, “What exotic part of the world do you come from?”

Racism is a royal family tradition that goes back generations.

Tedious

The Queen Mother spent her whole life calling black people “nig-nogs”.

And Prince William’s great uncle, King Edward VIII, was pals with HITLER and openly supported the Nazis.

More recently, the queen’s sister Princess Margaret even walked out of Schindler’s List in the first few minutes—calling it “a tedious film about Jews”. She advised her butler not to see it.

“I don’t want to hear another word about Jews or the Holocaust,” she said. “I heard enough during the war. I never want to hear about it again. Ever.”

When she met the president of Guyana, she said, “He’s everything I despise—he’s black and he’s married to a Jew.”

But hey, they've changed right. Now they're real nice people and just like us. Because we invite war criminals and brutal dictators to our weddings, right.

It has been an uncomfortable few days for the Royal Family over issues of race.

But as the row over Prince Harry using the word 'Paki' to describe a military colleague raged on, it emerged that an Indian polo-playing friend of the Prince of Wales and his sons is known to them as 'Sooty'.

The friend in question is multi-millionaire businessman Kuldip Singh Dhillon, who plays with the three princes at Cirencester Park Polo Club close to Highgrove, Charles's Gloucestershire home.

According to members, Mr Dhillon has been 'affectionately' known as Sooty 'for as long as anyone can remember'.

The Queen Mother referred to black people as "nig-nogs" or "blackamoors". She backed white minority rule in Rhodesia. She criticised Lord Mountbatten, viceroy of India, "for giving away the empire" and his wife because "her mother was half-Jewish".

She opposed immigration, and thought black Africans incapable of running their own countries.

awmakers, Muslim groups and the Pakistani public criticized Prince Harry on Sunday after a British newspaper published video footage of him using offensive and racist language.

Harry, third in line to the British throne and an army lieutenant, issued an apology on Saturday after the News of The World reported that he had used offensive terms to refer to people from Pakistan and people of Arab descent.

And we can go on and on like this. This I imagine is just 1% of outright racism that's been made public. I'd love to see these parasites wire tapped

Acctually, you're wrong, the queen volunteered to pay tax back in 1992 actually, so get your facts straight first, secondly, Tourism in the UK contributes to around 4.5% of britain GDP and is one of the UK's largest industries, what do you think people come to see? amongst our free to enter museums.
The royal events and locations are the biggest hit, if it weren't for the royal family we wouldn't have landmarks like the tower of london, buckingham palace or the royal gardens, it just wouldnt exist, instead we would have something similar to the US, a huge white building with a president, i love our history and heritage, i dont give a crap what grudges you got against them, they benefit our country, diplomacy and economy and im proud of what the UK is and what has been for hundreds of years, if you dont like it i'll give you the same advice as i would to a foreign immigrant.... LEAVE.

PS: and learn to consolodate your posts, making 5 consecutive posts isn't gonna get you anymore noticed, attention seeker much? yes i thought so.

Oh and for the racist remarks, although i agree its bad, welcome to the real world, more people are racist than you think, they just dont publicly show it, i hear people everyday make snide racist remarks, but dont take sides, you think the british royal family are the only president or royal family to be racist and still racist to this day, if you do your very naive, you dont think the arabs have their own racist remarks for the whites? honestly you think this?? you need to open your eyes a little wider, the world is full of racism and allways will be, its something we all have to live with unfortunately, just dont condemn a certain group of people because you have a personal grudge, when it comes to racism the whole world should be looked at, blacks are just as racist towards whites and vice versa.

Volunteered in the face of massive mounting scrutiny and breaking point anti-Royal opinion. Why didn't she volunteer in 1982, or 72, or etc etc. She was forced to 'volunteer' lmao. What she did was nothing short of co-optation. She volunteered and went about doing things to appease the masses because she had no choice. But ask yourself why it wasn't volunteered earlier? In fact don't act yourself, clearly you don't care.

I know what people come to see, and I told you already. Landmarks and architecture. Of course without Monarchy these things wouldn't exist, but that's erroneous. People still see the Pyramids, don't they? People still see architecture and monuments created by Monarchy, in nations that no longer have them, right? You want to skew the facts, you're being dishonest here. You know aswell as I do we could get rid of Monarchy tomorrow and tourism lost would be so insignificant it wouldn't even be worth mentioning.

And btw. Millions go to see that big white building every year. And it looks a hell of alot nicer than Buckingham Palace, let me tell you. One is a symbol of Democracy and freedom. The other symbolizes oppression and slavery.

There we have it though. You support the Monarchy and their activities, even hundreds of years ago when they were actively involved in making life an absolute misery for a good part of the world. You probably have Rule Britannia on vinyl.

And btw, here's an idea, you leave! Britain hasn't represented what you want it to represent since, well, since forever. Throughout history the majority have opposed tyrannical rule from Monarchs and the majority have always championed Democracy and freedom. If you don't like what Britain is, and if you don't share the views of the majority of Britons, why don't you piss off? You'd probably enjoy North Korea.

Understand you're in the minority. Now go eat a prawn sandwich, listen to Rule Britannia and do whatever you said you were going to do when you claimed to be finishing the debate 4 posts back.

With all due respect, how is any of that relevant? I'm criticising racism. The Royal Family could be black for all I care, a vulgar racist is a vulgar racist.

What do Arab racists or black racists have to do with the Royal family being racists? Unlike you, I don't excuse racism. I don't sing the praises of racists, so none of what you're saying is applicable to me in anyway.

I think I'm well entitled to condemn RACISTS for being RACIST. I can't recall suggesting or implying anyone other than the RACIST royal family in question are RACIST, so just wtf are you talking about?

You would like to think im in the minority, I'm 100% british and proud, my great grandfathers fought in the war, my dad served in the army and ive even did a stint myself, why should i piss off, your the one basically putting down everything british, i know its hard for you to swallow, but the monarchy is part of what britain is, and has been for 100's of years, i think you are the one that should piss off, you obviously disagree with everything british, so why dont you emigrate to america, im sure USA - The land of Democracy and FREEDOM *caugh* would happily take you
