I still blame the Queen for not making a principled stand against the traitorous politicians. If it had been me, I would have put my crown and the whole monarchy on the line. Without sovereignty, our monarchy is also meaningless. She has acted in her own interest by continuing to take the money and title but not defended our nation and constitution. I know she would have been attacked for being undemocratic, but the uproar might have made a lot of people wake up.
I take much the same view. A democratic state needs a functioning head of state separate from the prime minister, as the guarantor of the constitution. The Queen has ceased to be that. In a sense, she is a bed blocker ... occupying the position of head of state without performing the function. She has become a ceremonial figure only and, as that is the case, they might as well sell the whole royalty thing to Butlins and be done with it.
We still hear people talk glibly of patriotism and loyalty, but it cuts both ways. Where is the loyalty of the Crown to the United Kingdom?
