He's just a baby
That's not right
When your whole reason for being alive is keeping an outdated monarchy alive by draining your countrymen dry, I say they should shut the fuck up.
They actually do a tonne of charity work, and William is in the military.
OK -- but I don't think that warrants all the entitlement and "non-earned" income in this day and age. The Queen is one of the richest women in the world. Have you checked the unemployment rate in the UK?
They may bring tourist money into the country, but I guess as an American I cannot understand the bowing and scraping to these inbred folks, nice as they may seem.
I'm not a fan of the paparazzi, but I'm sure Prince George is one of the best protected children on the planet. Then again, he's at higher risk than the average child.
The Germans aren't known for their patience.
Better ask @skylarbrie about the Illuminati connection.
They should protect their children from the circus the paparazzi causes.
Monarchy itself is a bit outdated though. The royal family is basically only still there for historical purposes.
Boo hoo. They're about the only thing holding that suburb of Pakistan together. Where would the UK be without holding onto some tradition?
Lots of people do a ton of charity work and serve in the military.
Then they have to work real jobs because their great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather didn't do something historically significant.
If you wish to be a figurehead, you're inviting attention and publicity, and as E.M. Fosterer noted, when you ask for that, you take when you get and not just what you want.
Moving into the future and not clinging to some long lost past?
yes. Let's erase every cultures history and restart.
Who should be supreme leader of this much shittier world?
What has one to do with the other?
Let's consider the cornerstone of British culture: William Shakespeare. He was not some pretentious fancy lad, though he probably did talk like a fag. He was a working class writer whose plays and poems survive thanks to the general public, and while the elites saw and probably enjoyed his dramas and comedies they scoffed at his colleague Ben Jonson's pretention in titling his omnibus Works, a title usually reserved for "important" matters like the Queen's ramblings about how stupid the Irish were. That's why we know so very little about him. He died in his home town, with most of his personal possessions and writings likely consumed to time and fire rather than treated with the reverence one might expect from the finest writer the tongue has ever seen.
Sure, they got it right occasionally, as with Lords Tennyson and Britton, but overall the Royal Family is and always was a bunch of pompous wankers sucking on the tit of nostalgia. That people had to suck up to them to get somewhere shouldn't be a reflection on their own (lack of) importance. I'm pretty sure the Germans wouldn't have crossed the Channel regardless of whether Elizabeth's stuttering dandy of dad managed to tell everyone things weregoing to be OK, because even if they make onto the mainland I'll be on the Atlantic while London's busy burning.
When you get here I'll guard ya ......
You'll do it ...
did they warn them with peace and love?
They won't be around much longer. ISIS will be moving in to Buckingham Palace soon enough. The Queen will probably have a "welcome to your new home" tea with their leader.
But do the have actual JOBS?
(Not the guy in the military, that's a job)
Couldn't agree more
