    After the end of the second Elizabethan era, hopefully:

    - Lizzie will outlive the wanker Charles.

    - William and Kate will retire to the c.untry.

    - Megan and Harry will fuck off to California where Megan can "thrive".

    The only problem with that scenario is that we will have a politician as Head of State.
    And judging by the last Speaker, those who are supposed to be 'above' politics:-

    A) Aren't.
    B) Have very expensive tastes.

    Nope, just fed up with the never ending angst from the Windsor benefit claimants. OK, I know it's magnified by the media, but enough is enough.

    Wherever did you get the idea that I'm a benefit claimant?

    yeah, getting a bit tired of Harry and his 'oh poor me' privileged orphan character. William instead of Charles, or Nicola Sturgeon/Diane Abbot as head of a junta.

    Who's eligible? Returned by a simple majority? Or a two thirds majority as it's not a purely internal matter?

    Would a referendum on the subject be useful?
