I have and in previous posts you've admitted that small portions of your own military would support such a cause. I don't understand how this has
been answered when not a single reply has addressed the question. Do you think it impossible for politicians to be bribed? Mercenary to be hired?
Military personnel to be swayed?
I want to know what happens 20, 30, 50 years down the road when the King decides he wants his crown back and has the money and power to do so.
Okay, our Army currently stands at 102,000 fulltime serving soldiers and is being cut to 82,000. The Army Reserve (TA) stands at approx. 35,000
soldiers. Many of these forces are currently deployed overseas fighting and would therefore not be available for any said take back. Personally I
believe less that 20% of those numbers left in the U.K. would support any Monarchic take back attempt.
If any reservists were called up to mobilise for the queen it would not stay secret for very long as we work alongside these people in our day to day
lives. We are a very small country by area and all of our military bases are located within a few miles of urban areas and are staffed by many
civilian personnel so any build up of military personnel on our shores would also not stay secret for very long.
Moving on to mercenary forces, to put foreign troops into the U.K. for a take back attempt I believe short of airstrikes and parachute dropped armed
forces, I cannot see an attempt like this going unnoticed. As I said earlier, we are a small country by area and any military build up would have to
travel on our small (in comparison to the U.S.) road and rail network.
The Police service stands at approx. 134,000 and is to be cut approx 5000 over the next 3 years. Recent riots on our cities streets found that the
police could not handle even a few thousand trouble makers in several cities at the same time and the street remained in the hands of the trouble
makers for several days. I also believe that maybe less than 50% of these police member would support any take back plan and this number would
diminish when the true nature of the job they are being asked to do came to light. These Army and Police personnel have to live next door to the rest
of the population on a day to day basis.
You must also remember that the British people believe in the democratic process and whilst many are disheartened with the politicians they are not
with the process so would not stand by and allow a plan to take power to the crown to happen. I do believe certain politicians are influenced by
lobbyists but if it came to a take back of the crown by the monarchy they would not be onboard in enough numbers to let it happen.
So I believe the numbers would not add up. Further to this, when TSHTF the British people will stand up and fight to protect what has been built over
many centuries. We have fought for our freedoms, we have fought for our jobs and we have fought for injustices, we may be slapped around a little by
our politicians but if pushed to far the British people always fight back against the establishment and history has shown this to be true.
