    So remind us all why your benefit is so different. The royals pay in far more than you ever have.

    Maybe it should have to be ratified at a special biweekly meeting.

    A political formula is a belief that makes the ruled accept their rulers. Since the former tend to outnumber the latter, a political formula is, if not absolutely essential, an excellent way to cut down on your security costs. A political formula is adaptive because the rulers have, obviously, both motive and opportunity to promote it.

    Imagine Harry and Sparkle standing on the steps of a private jet:

    "Oy! You plebs down there! To save the planet you must stop flying off on holiday every year!"

    If they stopped saying that sort of thing it would help.

    But we have to fly to all these underdeveloped countries to see them for ourselves before climate change destroys them.

    Whilst stopping off at a few countries on the way whilst hiring a 8.0L V8 Taxi to take them to the Hotel.

    The ER peeps that were here in Bristol a few months back got back into their diesel land rovers to drive home.

    Are they really that fucking stupid or are they just trying to be overly ironic?
