Oh we did, then the puritan ruled parliamentarians banned alcohol, think prohibition along with gangsters and public dislike of the party pooping
government but over here and several hundred years ago, our bootleggers either brewed it in hidden places or brought it in over the English channel
from the continent.
So the public began to hate the parliamentarian's and long for the good old day's of the sneering inbred royal's because of one single thing, they
could drink alcohol, this of course culminated in the Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell being executed, the royals that replaced him then digging him up
some time later and once again mock executing him this time beheading, his head then beginning a three hundred or so year journey as a symbol against
those who would challenge the royal's.
But of course the new royal's in truth only had the throne they never would have because of Cromwell, still they are well known for being a SANE lot
And the current royal's are nothing - much - to do with those royals whom died off.
They fill an important constitutional role and can be handy so long as we have a monarch that cares about our people.
Once Elizabeth is gone though unless the Succession skip's Charles he will probably spell the end of the royal's simply because most people can not
forgive him for the way he treated Diana and even after decades of post death character assassination aimed at her most still love her.
Remember though is a presidential system any better?, I mean they end up corrupt, bought and owned or otherwise not correct.
We do also owe the Queen for her years of commitment toward the commonwealth even often going against the beliefs and wished of her own prime
ministers and the commonwealth will be invaluable to us now, with the queen's passing though Australia will undoubtedly declare itself a republic and
deny Charles, New Zealand may then follow suit but they have many other royal family's right there among the Maori's so just maybe that will be a
little more complicated and they may keep the crown as a figure head out of avoiding the complexity that such disentanglement may cause especially to
