Its worth swearing allegiance to the Queen just for the admittedly very remote possibility that she may well say to us that she has had enough with the dickheads in parliament and would like them thrown out please.

Out of date and unrepresentative. It should be aimed directly at the people not a monarch and her hereditary privileged heirs and successors. If you think not, then let us have hereditary Captains and etc.

Well that is a very good reason for change. To think that you would sanction the removal of elected representatives (no matter how poor or inefficient they are) in favour of a person who is in a position of enormous influence because of birth is daft and undemocratic. Clearly you believe in a monarch yielding enormous power of YOUR representatives. Odd!!

Thanks - no of course not I was obliged to swear the absurd present oath but served to protect my family above all else and then country, certainly NOT a teutonic monarch.

Too bloody right I would! If Her Majesty decides to use the Armed Forces to oust that bunch of hopeless no-marks from the Palace of Westminster, I'd be there with bells on!

But the whole point is that there is no choice. I wasn't asked to swear allegiance to my family, the British people or country, but a monarch, unlike the German one (how ironic) that puts citizens not subject first.

Of course there is a choice. Sign up or fuck off.
