Is it time for the Brits to ditch the monarchy?

Imagine that Bugsy posts bollocks. Yet another attempt to inflict his doggerel on an uncaring world.
He craves the attention.
Because his dad raped him repeatedly as a child.

This is the trouble with winter. It gets dark earlier and the pigeons abandon the town centre, depriving Pants O'Flame the chance to yell incoherently at them for another few hours.

So we get him instead.

We could go for the same type of rulers socialist countries have.
God, don't even go there.

Hollande
Berlusconi
Merkle
Chavez
Fernandez
Castro
And of course any 'President for Life' in some African or Middle Eastern Hell Hole.

What, sack the Boss and give idiots and Trots even more room ? If the monarchy doesn't do much good, it doesn't any harm and it doesn't actually use its powers very often. But it cuts down on corruption and it's cohesive. It's also popular and wanted by most Britons, and it's been going since the Heptarchy and the Conqueror. Nobody likes, trusts or believes politicians or politics. And besides, getting rid of the monarchy just isn’t worth the effort and we wouldn't get to see those w@nkers all forced on their knees to kiss the Queen's hand.
It’s now the 21st Century, yet the UK still hangs on to an antiquated system going back centuries.
It's called history.
 
Last Irish King was around the 13th Century and that went well, And while Betty was on the throne the Brits gave Ireland a couple of bob to prevent a cash famine. Thank goodness there's some good ol' Irish folks around to negate the bitter buggers. :cool:
 
Didn't the British get rid of the monarchy a few centuries ago? If I remember correctly they didn't like it and brought the king back again.
I'm surprised Bugsy hasn't thought of this. I believe the leadership of those days is still considered slightly unfavourably by those if his ilk.
 
just seen this thread, I prefer the likes of the Queen over the system the Irish prefer ie rotten politicians and prime ministers like Charlie Haughey Albert Reynolds and such,
out and out crooks, so don't preach to us bogwog.
Can Ireland support its citizens yet or do they still farm them out to countries with decent economies?
 
OP, No. We 'd still need a head of state and I'm sure Her Majesty is way better value than spunking a load of cash electing another slimy politician, the spending just as much as the monarchy on the presidency, and having half the nation disappointed each time because their candidate lost.

Far better to have someone who hasn't had to lie their way up a greasy pole to get there, and works to unite the nation out of a sense of unity. Our way separates the ceremonial aspects of head of state and places it above the scum of politics.

Unfortunately, what you have (in the UK) is the likes of Aunt Betty plus rotten politicians and a thoroughly corrupt political system. Just like we have in Ireland (without Aunt Betty).

In fact, Aunt Betty and all her parasites are an integral part of the corrupt system. Not twigged yet?

Drugsy's probably not happy because our HM is quite diminutive yet stands head and shoulders over the leprechaun the paddies voted in as President. Quite funny when he meets the rugby teams and the ball boys tower over him.
Quite illuminating to see the wiki entry on corruption among Irish politicians. Not that drugsy will ever know as he's happy enough living in a country with a monarchy providing they dish out the benefits and free methadone every week.
