UN - "Britain should get rid of the Queen"

#1
So the corrupt bunch of freeloaders now set their sights on one of the UK's foundations:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/new...-should-get-rid-of-the-monarchy,-says-UN.html

From the report:

"The UN Human Rights Council said the UK must "consider holding a referendum on the desirability or otherwise of a written constitution, preferably republican".

The council has 29 members including Saudi Arabia, Cuba and Sri Lanka".

So the lunatics have taken over the asylum.

Who the fuck do they think they are????

How dare they tell us we should consider binning OUR Queen. Ignorant fucking peasants. :x

It s a bit crazy.

Saudi Arabia are also a monarchy - where the King has absulute power as opposed to the largely ceromonial role our queen has. Every goverment minister in S.Arabia is a member of the royal family.

Further down it says that Iran has critisised the UK on our record on sexual discrimination. What?

They must have been having a laugh when they thought this one up!

Edited because I can't spell.

They can ram it- what a waste of space!

Oh BTW please note that it was a supposed member of the Commonwealth that suggested this. Time for one fewer member?

well thats a good days work at the UN done not :(
The UN seems like a good idea and does more good than harm usually in spite of some of the big players :roll:
but its still pretty ******* hopeless.
trouble is without it we'd have to invent something similar which would beset with the same problems.
half the worlds governments are corrupt thugs who wouldn't be allowed to run a cadet unit let alone a country.
America has decided its the sole superpower so is going to ignore the rest of the world unless it wants the rest of the world to clean up its mess :twisted:
Israel gives the rest of the middle east an excuse to behave like bastards and blame the jews.

The audacity of those brigands! To think that it was the British system that a majority of the UN based it’s democracy on, the whole thing smacks of hypocrisy! Those corrupt idiots may be mediocre at attempting to create world peace, but having the gall to dictate to a key founding member is preposterous.

Surely we have enough tins of instant sunshine to teach the fukkers a lesson or two?
Its non of the UN's business for a start.
So we aren't allowed a vote to see wether we hand over Sovereignty to the EU but we should get one to encourage us to ditch the Monarchy????

To be honest, I broadly support the concept of the crown beyond the personality of monarchy. If we ever did decide that we no longer needed a personification of the crown, then I for one would vote for keeping the mechanisms of state. As anyone who has studied the organs of state they lock in certain liberties through history, and safeguards, with the crown acting as a keystone.

Should HM rather be the Duke of Lancaster, walking her dogs more frequently and not being required to come into the office, I'd vote for placing the crown on the throne and carrying on as per normal. No one with any knowledge on the subject can doubt the political power of sign, symbol, and ritual as functional and socially cohesive, especially when culturally and historically relevant.

If you care then you can read the rest of the report

Click on the E for an english version.

Long and drawn out with typical politik speak but some interesting bits.

concerns regarding the disproportionately high incidence of deaths in
custody of members of ethnic or racial minority groups

was concerned at the United Kingdom’s limited acceptance of the applicability
of the Convention to the actions of its forces abroad and observed that Convention protections
extend to all territories under the jurisdiction of a State party, and considered that this principle
includes all areas under the de facto effective control of the State’s authorities.67


It goes on and on and on and onnnnn
