You're not getting it are you? That wasn't the question asked.

The question was, what happens when a King decides "to hell with law" and wants his true crown back? Who stops him?


Probably the same thing that happened to King Charles the first.

Because this thread isn't about gun control? I don't know man, I just wrote up a thread speaking my mind.

I'd be more inclined to worry about the amount of Muslims living in Britain, than
any power grab by our trusted and wonderful Royal family.

The point I tried to make here is that keeping royalty around because you like having them is like keeping a lion on a lease in the backyard. He's such a cute little kitty until he bites your arm off.

I think that if the monarchy really wanted it's power back, they have the funds to do so be it through mercenary strength or your own military. And if you can really walk down the street and purchase a firearm in the UK, how has gun control been a success? The criminals are obviously still armed.


Well, for a start it's been almost 20 years since a nutter walked into a school and slaughted a bunch of children, so I'd say that yes, gun control in this country has been a massive success.
Secondly, the monarchy has no control over the Armed Forces. None, zip, zilch, nada. Oh and no control over the levers of power. Parliament has power.

Why do you keep refering to the citizens of the UK as 'disarmed'? We are not disarmed. It is perfectly legal to own a firearm in the UK providing you don't have a criminal record. And I wouldn't worry too much about Charlie, he's basically an aged hippy/organic farmer

Probably right. By comparison. Especially given that MI6 was so happy to give those with extremist sympathies immunity...up until it began biting them on arse

Our greatest achievement!

I don’t think it is correct to say the monarchy have no power.

Being on the throne they ensure we are subjects and not citizens. We imbue them with power because we somehow feel inferior to them.

Blairs promise to change the House of Lords by appointing people like nurses, caretakers. Normal people that have given service above and beyond yet all we see is the same old landed gentry, Ex politicians, lawyers and businessmen. We are told there is no class system but have daily examples that it is alive and well

We will never shed the feudal class system all the time there is someone on the throne.

To say it is our tradition is blinkered but to take it for granted the alternative would be any better when there is no proof to show that is just as foolhardy.

What’s the alternative? A president? That does not look that attractive to me when I look across the pond and see what the USA have had over the years.

Time to stop this silliness!

Some facts about the Royals.

1. They have laser-beams that shoot out of their eyes.
2. They don't actually breathe air. That's why they always look like someone is waving a very tiny piece of poo under their nose.
3. Chuck Norris has a truce with them.
4. Every 7 years, the males have a ritual called Pon farr that allows them to mate.
5. The royals don't actually exist. It's just one guy (named Carl) who dresses up as one of them for occasions and such.

I hope that cleared things up.

Carry on.

A mercenary force would have to be the way they carried it out. I believe that although a small section of our military would back a Monarchy take back of power, the majority of squadies would not. As for the success of gun control, you really should not listen to the B/S that people like Piers Morgan rambles on with about the U.K. not having guns or gun crime. In any town or city in this country it is not hard to get hold of an illegal firearm if you want one and have a few pounds in your pocket. I live in a city of 400,000 people and shooting incidents are common place events.

To a certain point, we do still have freedom and control. The problem America has is that it refuses to wake up to the corruption that plague her Government. But really it's been this way since 1913 when the Federal Reserve act passed. John F. Kennedy was our last President. We haven't had once since. Americans refuse to accept reality.


and yet for all the time that has passed since then, and all the guns in your nation, what has been done about it? it still does not look like guns are protecting you from tyranny

Especially given, that when we had a Republic, what a tosser Cromwell turned out to be, selling the country, and those that fought alongside him, out to the Capitalists.

Because nobody wants a revolution. Nobody wants a civil war. We all know what the cost is if such a thing would happen. And most of us know that our Government is corrupt. That our Government is overreaching. And that there are multiple people as of this minute that could be convicted of treason. The point is, revolt is our last option reserved for when we're backed into a corner. The fact that we're still able if need to be is the point here.

Good point, seems that the US are afraid, even, if not especially, in their own homes. That seems to be why they have guns, not in order to stand up against the government which continues to shove it up where the sun don't shine with ever increasing degrees.

You know, I honestly want to see what would happen if Charles became King. That would be some good reality TV right there. You could put a camera in there and film it like Osbournes!

Well we obviously need to get an agent for Charles to set up his reality TV show for when he becomes King


You can call it "descent into madness".

in all honesty, he would shuffle and mumble just like ozzy, just he'd talk to his carrots and parsnips, not moan at the telly.

and at the most, i reckon charles would be king just long enough to get on the records before handing it over.

I think it would consist of lots of scenes of a stony-faced PM telling the tosser not to be such a prat.
