They get money from the crown estate which is inherited. Are you suddenly against rich people inheriting wealth?I don't think you understand what "milking" something means. Their entire existence and way of life is based on taking advantage of the country. It's unearnt. That's what it means.
Bizarre. No wonder universal suffrage has its critics.
Cameron the gobshite **** said the Queen raised an eyebrow, did that make him do something? If you bothered your arse to read the black spider letters, Charles was genuinely concerned about people who could be classed as vulnerable, which is why the Guardian stopped harping on about it when they became public. How exactly did either harm anyone in the UK?Influence such as raising an eyebrow for Cameron would have had, to use a simple example. Charles and the black spider letters, etc.
Because he has (or at least had) "influence". No it hasn't. It's a constitutional monarchy and has been since 1932. The King reigns, he doesn't rule.
That's entirely their decision, not mine, and it would be wrong of me as an outsider to even opine on it.
You mean you are too spineless to say the King of Thailand is a corrupt **** who is happy that his people live in poverty while he lives in luxury?Your idea that I'm "not a fan of the monarchy" is not only totally baseless but totally untrue as I've pointed out several times. I'm very much a supporter of the monarchy where it has a point and serves a purpose, as it does in a number of countries other than the UK - as I've said repeatedly.
Those monarchies, like Thailand's, are totally different to the UK's as are their countries' cultures. There's simply no comparison: it's like my criticising the Swiss Guard in the Papal See and your drawing the conclusion that I'm also criticising the Bde of Guards and the British Army for the same reasons. Beyond stupid.
If i may clarify, the British Monarchy is wrong as are some of the biggest republics in the world? This from a man who chooses to live in a corrupt country ruled by a King who doesnt give a shit about his subjects?Of course it's "bollocks". That's entirely my point, which is why I'm critical of the entire supposedly democratic system in the UK and a number of other countries including France and particularly the US.
GAFM ...... the dangers of universal suffrage encapsulated .....
Are you joking? Why would a single man stay away from women who want to shag them? Because some po faced gits think that people shouldnt enjoy themselves?
A man who did bum a 13 year old after plying her with booze and drugs, but is kept safe by the French while making films that people continue to watch.
I dont disagree with the legalities, however, as a 43 year old man, wanting to fcuk a 17 year old because 'she is legal' in my opinion is creepy as ****. Sure being creepy isn't illegal and maybe not even morally corrupt in law, I think I have pointed out that being a member of the Royal Family and a Prince why shouldnt you bone anything with a pulse....Nothing to see here.I dont disagree that Andrew is a total Penis of the highest order but some young woman have always thrown themselves at men in power - go back in history as far as you want - I think its the female equivalent of trying to big themselves up in front of their peers. You can argue that they are immature and I wont disagree but the fact remains whether its the Beetles, Tom Jones, the latest boyband, millionaire footballers, Billionaires or the Royals there are plenty of young and sometimes old women who willingly place themselves into those circles for whatever reason: fame, curiosity, being horny, to take advantage, starstruck or plain just being an idiot! If you are a bloke in those circles you need massive discipline to not take whats so readily on offer!
Perhaps not everyone lives by your made up moral code.My opinion is worthless but I will state it anyway, at some point, perhaps being a father or being over 30......at some point, wanting to fcuk a 17 year old girl because its legal to do so still makes you a filthy nonce.
At a blind guess, you pay taxes in the UK because you have a government pension. Given that you are Australian, are you actually a British citizen?Didn't realise I needed a reason or excuse, Bob. FWIW, if I need one, I'm still British, still pay UK tax, and haven't "emigrated" anywhere. Take your pick.
Absolute Rubbish and very disparaging, not to mention direspectful - many thousands of people took part and the vast majority got nothingEveryone got something for being at Jutland
Thanks, I was hoping someone would add a better description of what he did.clattering around off the stern of the carrier @ 200ft with the doorman chucking out bundles of chaff to distract a missile that flies at 6ft is not the usual definition of ‘getting shot at’.
Seems, according to that list, he was bunged a Order of Saint Vladimir 4th Class, a non gallantry LS&GC type award by his Uncle Tsar Nikolas funnily enough he is listed under another relative who received the same award.Absolute Rubbish and very disparaging, not to mention direspectful - many thousands of people took part and the vast majority got nothing

At what age do blokes become a filthy nonce for ******* a 17 year old? 21? 25? 30?
serious question - unless you definetly knew (addmittedly in Andys case he is alleged to have known but not proved (yet!)), how would you definetly know she was 17? girls can be very confident, sexually predatory, damn sneeky and have the advantage of camoflauge creams/fashios etc to appear far older - if you were 30-35 and copped off with a hot willing 22 year old in a club and then found out after the fact she was only 17 are you 'nonce' or a victim yourself?at some point, wanting to fcuk a 17 year old girl because its legal to do so still makes you a filthy nonce.
I want trying to be black and white, its an impossible situation and I agree with you, how owuld you draw a line. The law has done that, as far as the law is concerned you are not a paedo and as a law abiding citizen (myself) then thats that.serious question - unless you definetly knew (addmittedly in Andys case he is alleged to have known but not proved (yet!)), how would you definetly know she was 17? girls can be very confident, sexually predatory, damn sneeky and have the advantage of camoflauge creams/fashios etc to appear far older - if you were 30-35 and copped off with a hot willing 22 year old in a club and then found out after the fact she was only 17 are you 'nonce' or a victim yourself?
So what age is it that they become a filthy nonce?Only I live by my moral code.
As i tried to point out in my post, I cannot challenge the law and it is my opinion, it is an impossible situation so the age of 17 is legal and the law is the legal position, therefore, no-one is a nonce for doing a 17 year old unless she is retarded.
My "made up" moral code is just fine not made up, it how I live and its parts of experience, teachings and beliefs. I dont know you, I dont know how old you are and I dont know the 17 year old you may or may not be fcuking so I wont make judgements, the same as I havn't with Prince Andrew as the he said/she said shit is not worth basing an opinion on.
It doesnt matter what age a bloke becomes a filthy nonce in my opinion, this is internetshire and some pixels dont make the law or the jury decide.
So its fine to **** a 23 year old, someone who was born when you were 20? You filthy ******* nonce.However, the point I was trying to make is that as a 43 year old man, I still look at many 17-22 year olds as children (yes there are those who do look mature) and the fact they are legal doesnt make me want to fcuk them and if i did, then regardless of the law I was still fcuking a kid and therefore would be a paedo.
That'll keep him busy and I daresay he'll feel at home in the company of similarly self-important, grasping shits.PRINCE ANDREW TO REMAIN PATRON OF ROYAL JERSEY GOLF CLUB - PRESUMED INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY
PRINCE Andrew will remain patron of the Royal Jersey Golf Club because he is ‘innocent until proven guilty’, the club’s captain has said in a letter sent to all members.jerseyeveningpost.com
Last time I had carnal knowledge of a 17 year old we were both freshers at Paisley, she was from a small Scottish town, we met when I was 2 days off my last tour and a 29 year old steely jawed shaven headed bad boy with tattoos, motorbike etc. I wanted a shag, she wanted an adventure, we both got something..Perhaps not everyone lives by your made up moral code.
