Andrew is no different to any other individual and would probably take umbrage at any suggestion that he is not earning his title. He is the sort, IMO, who if he doesn't want to listen to complaints...

The poor man would have had a sip of Whisky too many and tragically slipped down the stairs. Whilst the country lapses into electing another leader of the ruling party and the opposition calls for an...

I can only speak for the Army and RAF officers I know and each and every one of them will tell you they fight for Queen and country, in that order. Ask most (not all) non commissioned ranks what they...

I want the monarchy and the class system to continue (well I would wouldn't I, :rofl:). Why do we bellyache about the royals earning their keep, because we have throughout the centuries paid for the...

BeatrixFan, before you know it, you will be shouting 'Long Live King Charles' and telling everyone you had your doubts about his son, William when he was a boy, but look how well he has turned out!...

No, No, Noooooo. These two sections (above) puzzle me. :flowers:

Would you seriously put another non military man/woman in charge of our armed forces? The one we have is bad enough although he...

I agree with you. Can you imagine the likes of Blair or Brown as president, they have milked enough money out of taxpayers in the time they have been in power. What would happen in this republic when...

Yes they were conscripts, but I think it speaks volumes that only 60,000 applied for concientious objector status. I don't think Britain was any more racist than perhaps America or any of the...

People battled on the home front to preserve the freedoms you now enjoy, such as disparaging their endeavours. Yes there were conscripts but most young men and women fought proudly for their King and...

You are right, in every aspect of life, some people can take offence at the slightest thing, while others see it for the joke it was meant to be.

Some people took offence at Phillips remark, most...

So what do you want people who inherit wealth and/or property to do, what do you want HM to do? Put it all in one big pot to be distributed to the 'poor and needy'? Who decides who gets what, give it...
