Well this might upset a few of you but say it I will, I can’t wait until the jubilee celebrations are well and truly over, the present ruling monarch are just too old and out seriously dated now, they’re as worn out and uninspiring as our dreadful national anthem, whenever I hear it’s slow drone building up I actually cringe inside, why not use Jerusalem or something like that with energy and drive for Gods sake!?. all the lyrics are simply a brown nose to the royals as it is and don’t mention the rest of us at all not very democratic is it?!.
The bottom line is the/they need us more than we them and were the ones who pay for their gold plated lifestyle, why do we have to pay deference to these people like we do these days anyway?, the anthem should be about the country as a whole, if I ever went to war it wouldn’t be for them it would be done for my family and you guys my countrymen, the last thought would be of the royals as if we were ever invaded you and I would be left here to fight and die while they were flown out ASAP, I can’t see them getting anywhere near the danger zone, well apart from Harry as he’s a decent guy who likes to get stuck in but they won’t even let him do that these days.
But that said I’d still rather have the royals in some form than some turnip like Blair as a president at least the queen has some sense of morality and duty to the population she rules over, but they desperately need to change and become more modern I feel, if they don’t they will end up looking more and more like something invented by the Disney corporation. Grasp the nettle Liz take a back seat, put Charles and his wasp chewing wife Camilla out to grass and let William and Kate take over, you’ve had a really good run for your money and you have kept things going through hard times but now it’s time to retire with dignity and let the young guns take over.
