    Would a referendum on the subject be useful?

    Single transferable vote perhaps, got any better ideas?

    "Irie" - your name... It's just occurred to me, maybe because I'm a bit slow - does it perhaps have the same meaning as "ang-rie"? Certainly seems that way from a lot of your posts. Life difficult?

    The Royal Family is better than a President and probably cheaper
    But Harry and Meghan need to stop whining and Andrew needs to learn to keep his dick in his pants
    The Royal Family needs to train all of the children to the same level as William (who appears to know what's expected of him)

    But, part of the issue is that they focus on the one that is directly in line and sometimes the others go 'off the rail'!!

    Exactly, though I can't really blame them, if I had the same opportunities as them my behaviour would probably be a lot worse.
    The minor royals need to realise that being a royal requires a standard of behaviour and that in the modern world it's very likely any transgressions will get found out.

    I think Harry's doing the right thing moaning about media interference, why the fuck should they put up with it? I suspect he's also making the point to Charles, who did put up with it..

    Also, he gets my vote for being a net contributor for his work on the invictus games.

    I think the current absolute shower of politicians (which is all we would be left with to 'represent' us) who have absolutely no fecking class, despite their education, just shows how much we rely on the continuity, standards etc shown by the royal family. You might say it's priceless. Certainly the new generation of Harry & William show traits we can all aspire to. Most of the bollocks they have to put up with is just the continual shitstirring of media twats.

    William (or Charles, if he's not too busy talking to trees) needs to tell Harry to STFU, Harry needs to tell Sparkle to STFU.

    Sorted.
