Default The Jubilee was a scam

It reads like something from The Daily Mash.

IRTV 1 featured a protester proclaiming: "I speak on behalf of millions of British people who are opposed to the monarchist system."

I enjoyed the 'protester' who claimed The Queen was 'undemocratic'...... that's right - and I hate the way she put VAT rates up last year, and cut the defence budget......... moron.........

I seen a guy from the anti-monarchist crowd being interviewd on the beeb on the day of the Thames pageant - what a complete tit he made of himself -gave absolutely no sensible answers or justification for his views on anti-monarchy.

If thats the best they can do then they should end up in the tower for being complete morons.

i like the Royals btw....specially Zara....

He has the right to be a twat if he wants. They are not blowing up people or asking for non-western and completely undemocratic systems of law and governance to be imposed. It's simply an ongoing debate about how we select our Head of State.

I would like to see some sort of elected monarch at the head of a British Republic myself but haven't got the time to fuss over it. The current Queen does a good job to be honest - a very good job. And if they can inspire a few Britons to act with a bit more class and decency that's not a bad thing either.

To paraphrase: A monarch as the head of state is the worst system, apart from all the others...

The BBC are getting some heavyweight abuse about their TV coverage of the boats pageant flotilla jobby.............. I suppose asking Fearne Cotton to explain the significance of those boats which had taken part in the Dunkirk evacuations was a bit optimistic......

Personally I cant wait to see her majesty expire because I firmly believe that Charles as a king will do a better job in representing the new Britain, don't forget the Scots are voting on independance in 2015

Ah yes........... the vote on becoming independent from England (let's be honest)....... while remaining in the European Union........

By the way, if my country (the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) is going to be broken up, shouldn't everyone get a vote? It's just as important to residents in Gloucester as those in Glasgow..........

They should hand it off to Harry, he seems the most happy-go-lucky and least stuffy of the bunch.

this is exactly why 30% of scots would vote for independence tomorrow.
Its as valid an argument as saying asad should get a say in whether he leaves power, it makes no sense to do this and would lead to further dispute rather than resolution. The great what if is if Scotland voted for independence and England did not, then what? The scots should be forced to remain part of a union against their democratic wish? that situation would be ridiculous.
if the english, irish or welsh wish a vote then they should have one regarding their own independence or whether to remove scotland from the union.
