Quoted from Maringer
None of the names you mention are the head of state of their country or even want to be head of state. It is a ceremonial role with little real power which is why it would be perfectly easy to have somebody cheaper than Liz do just as good a job. All they need to do is turn up when required and then behave themselves. There's a reason that serious politicians don't try and become heads of state in countries which don't have a monarchy.

The US has a different system where the President is both head of government and head of state - a bit like an emperor, really. Not really working out that well, at the moment.


Fair play, Macron is head of state, Merkel is head of government, it still stands that Corbyn or Johnson will be the next PM and without a monarchy they would also be head of state, so who out of them two could do the queens job and represent the country, whom eh.

How about Corbyn as head of the government and Johnson as head of state?

A Corbyn government would be able to get much-needed stuff done and Johnson wouldn't be able to sell the country down the toilet yet would still be in the public eye, which would be enough to keep him happy. It's a win win.

Queenies alright, done a good job but a lot of the rest of them and their estates are way too excessive. The Royal Family and their taxpayers income should be stripped back extensively when our military etc has suffered cutbacks.

I have mixed views on royalty.

The Queen has done nothing wrong in the 60 odd years she has been Queen loved all over the world and rightly so.

Charles not so the way he treated Diana,

William also will be loved all over the world as he is a gentleman and is careful what he says unlike his dad.

Harry was every ones darling but his new wife is effecting his popularity .

The rest can get a job like the rest of us.

Andrew needs to go to the USA and be charged and possibly jailed that would wipe the smug look on his face.

I wonder why that is? I mean, Suits was pretty appalling after the first couple of series or so, but you can't blame an actress for working on a lucrative show. I'm not quite sure what else she has done to deserve all the negative press? Well, I am quite sure why she's getting the negative press, but she certainly doesn't deserve it.

If those Frogs had the Queen then her Majesty would have got that Chernobyl radioactive cloud reported accurately.

Honestly how do you even argue with this level of loopiness?


You must not call the French 'Frogs' it will no doubt be interpreted as racist by one or two gentle souls on here and can lead to your post being deleted and a warning issued by the moderator



Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake

balderdash Pete. By the time all the other 'looking-for-a-bit-of-publicity' tarts, not to mention the compensation hunters, have all jumped on the accusation bandwagon you'll want him hung! (well hung if he's screwed 'em all!)

I think you're probably okay if you're parodying another poster who is disappearing down a xenophobic rabbit-hole rather than just using it as a straight racial slur. Context as always is important with these things.

If 'Jap' for Japanese is racist then I'm flipping sure 'Frogs' for our French friends must be.
