Re: Should Britain have a Monarchy?
Yes, particularly nasty and insidious piece of journalism wasn’t it… OK, the Queen is cold and has some pretty severe control issues, but for the Blair propaganda machine to go to such lengths to highlight how well he ‘handled’ the situation, and how badly the Queen coped, is simply ugly. Remember, it took a plea from Prince William to stop the press slagging off the royal family. Hardly what you need when grieving for a mother / daughter / sister etc…
Now I’m not a particular fan of the Royal family, but given the alternatives, I don’t currently see another realistic option.
Keep them I say!!!
