    Default New succession Law.

    How can this be enacted when we are still at war and have unhappy vassals?
    Pfft, we don't even have a basque culture.
    Completely unrealistic.

    We are not paltry Irish, to be shrugged out of the United Kingdom on a whim. We've still much English baiting to be done.

    Also I really want the Queen to die so we can have a King on the throne again. Fingers crossed the next one won't be a Nazi sympathiser again.

    Another addition to Britain's biggest benefit scrounging family. A kicking, screaming little blood sucking parasite to eat more of the tax I pay and live a life of grotesque luxury while I work like a dog for peanuts and if I'm lucky, retire at 85 just before I die.

    I wish nothing but harm and bad luck to that family of blood sucking leeches. Divine mandate from God to bleed the taxpayer dry? Shove it up your arse.

    Same as they valiantly blew the shit out Manchester city centre, although it did get a shiny new one.

    [...]But the campaign group Republic - which wants an elected head of state in Britain - said "nothing of substance" had been changed.

    "The monarchy discriminates against every man, woman and child who isn't born into the Windsor family. To suggest that this has anything to do with equality is utterly absurd," spokesman Graham Smith said.
    It's about as pertinent an issue as whether women are allowed to become bishops; it's all archaic bullshit - who gives a good god damn?
    "Today the law has decided that dogs can now be a member of the Gestapo." Well that's fabulous; we can mark this down as another great leap forward for civilisation today.

    Unfortunately whenever I show my anti-royalist tendencies I'm told that we can tolerate the gross hypocrisy of claiming to be being a progressive, equal-opportunities society when we carry these aristocratic ticks on our flank because they bring in more money than they take. Which is all fine and dandy - but if they're bringing in so much money, why do they need to skim taxes?

    Of course if they weren't funded by the citizens they could say "Well screw you then", lock down the palace we currently pay to maintain and move all their money out of the country to dodge taxes like the other aristocrat parasites.

    I've not checked the Jobscentre site, but I don't think you're entitled to benefits if you're getting [url=http://www.discoveryfinance.com/how-much-do-british-royal-family-make-annually.html]over $450,000 a year[/url] in inheritance.

    Someone blew the shit out of Manchester? Wouldn't have thought anyone would notice.

    If it's a girl it'll still need to be thrown in the Thames. Tradition and all that.
