    Monarchies function best it’s our natural European form of Government. The US Constitution was a radical experiment and it has failed. Parliament should not have all the power. The King should preside over the two houses and hold ultimate authority. This would keep 99% of the crap that passes itself off as legislation? from getting passed.

    Monarchy is the best form of Government. I have always firmly believed that it’s better to have people run the country through bloodlines where the power is inherited rather than being elected through popularity contests. Royalty is brought up with a sense of pride and responsibility towards the people. Princess Diana was a Saint compared to Barack or? any President the US has had in 120 years. Slowly the Government of US has become nothing more than a greed ridden sleaze trap.

    during the reign of George III the crown estate went bankrupt, he surrendered the income from the Crown lands? to parliament for a fix income, this works out today as £60 million per year. the profits from the crown estates today are £230.9 million per year. that means that by having a queen taxpayers are £170 million better off. if we abolished the monarch they would get the crown estate worth 7 billion. but to mention the about of people that visit London because of the monarchy.

    look what the russians replace monarchy with,slaughter and repression,and as for america,it boasts? about freedom and equality,but in reality if you have no money,you have neither ,oh and don,t get sick, our monarchy is misunderstood,if ever the politicians went down the wrong path,she as the power,to remove their power.think of her as a sprinkler system,you never see what it can do until a fire starts.
