What are your opinions on the Royal Family? A pointless bunch of oiks that we should get rid of, or a huge assett and part of Britain who we should always have?

 

Id be especially interested in those not from the UKs perception of the Royal Family, do they make the UK more special or do you not give two hoots about them?

Similar theory Ray but would you not vote as you think you wouldn't make a difference that way either?

 

Im still undecided actually, i sway back and forth. It would be weird not to see the queens head on money though.

 

Can a mod add undecided as an option to the poll please?

I'm not really bothered, they don't do anything.

 

Yes, it adds something to our country, give us history and prestige. Yet they live like Kings because of their sperm, they don't do anything. They just wave, smile and shake peoples hands. Charles and Camilla get married. Whoop de freaken do. I really could care less. They're hardly the most 'Royal' of Families anyway. I mean, God knows what goes on 'behind the scenes' at the Palace.

 

Fair enough, they give our country something extra, but they've done nothing to get where they are.

Oh and Scottish MP's should disapeer out of england' date=' just as a random addition.[/quote']

 

Decisions made in Westminister affect the whole of the UK. Why shouldn't Scotland have representives down south if I'm going to be paying the same tax as some English guy? If Scotland ever gets fiscal independence, sure, send them on their way. As it is right now, it makes sense to have them there. Do you actually have a reason why a contingent acting on behalf of a country affected by decisions made in the British parliment should "disapeer", other than the fact that they're not born in England?

1. Decisions make in the BRITISH parliament affect BRITAIN, it just so happens that the building is in England. From Glasgow to Auchtermuchtie, from London to Manchester, decisions about tax/immigration/industry have the same effect. If it was the other way around and decisions regarding what happens in Britain were made in Edinburgh, would you be so passionate in getting the English politicians out of a decision making process which involves the English?

 

2. A lot of Scots want to be independant. Many feel the need for fiscal independence. This isn't some kind of situation where everyone born north of Berwick is desperate to attatch themselves to England.

 

3. If you think that the Scottish influence affecting the English life is over the top, I really do have sympathy for you. I mean that in the most sincere way, if you think you have it bad in England, you really haven't a clue what you're on about I'm afraid.

They are a bunch of tits who do absolutely nothing they just sit there in their big houses and expensive cars looking down at the rest of us who actually work for a living.

 

Get rid I reckon I dont get a wage for doing nothing so why should they get so much for having no say anymore in what goes on in our country or on behalf of our country its all decided by parliment now.

 

xXx
