Dave Bloke

are the queen and Prince phillip dead?

Recommended Posts

There  was a conspiracy theory a while back that they were both dead.  I think they are currently at Balmoral.  Check Mailonline at lunchtime as there will be the usual photos of them going to Crathie Church.

All hell will break loose when the Queen dies as Charles is not popular.  The scandal of his close relationship with the paedo ex Bishop of Gloucester went virtually unreported (and perhaps more importantly uncommented on)in the MSM.  Why the hell are they not questioning the bloke’s judgement?

The monarchy has been unpopular before and survived it.  We have been fortunate to have had a long run of monarchs who understand their role and the idea of duty with our current Queen, and Philip, being exceptional.

I don't know anyone who has expressed anything remotely resembling positive thoughts on Charlie boy.

The Lady Di fans don't like him for that, living in Cornwall the sheer hypocrisy of the Duchy of Cornwall concreting the countryside for gain whilst he preaches environmental causes makes him unpopular here.  Add that he's another one cosying up to islam and his very dubious associations over the years (Savile, and the Bishop of Gloucester for two) and you have someone who has lost public support before he had started.

In terms of his personality he comes across as a spoilt child: petulant, self indulgent, and unreliable.

I think it will be a case of suffering him for a few years until William and Kate, who do not have this catalogue of negativity about them, can have a go at restoring some popularity.

Depends,  The Guardian actively despise him. The Tory media generally are pro royal but once he gets to the throne I suspect that'll change quickly.

Mandatory 2-3 day Stock market and financial market closure as well. Possibly longer.

Could be up to a week of national mourning.

Does that mean a week off work?

 

YES  *fist pump* *runs around the room*  :)

I've had a horrible thought. When the queen dies we're going to have to see Charles's ugly mug on all the banknotes.

Canada have printed some already (just in case).

I wouldn't worry about that, if Theresa the appeaser stays in much longer we'll be using the Euro before he gets the gig

Is there a petition anywhere that we can sign to oppose having all the TV channels turned off?

They're fine.

On holiday in Egypt.

Herghada with Thomas Cook.

Yup, Charles paid for the tickets....

I'm not naturally disposed to royalty but think that we sorted the issue in 17th century.

The Queen has been a fantastic monarch: her eldest son gives me the creeps. He will be wildly unpopular.

Wouldn't have thought DOSBODERs care too much about trash TV being down for a week. I wouldn't even notice - I don't watch it.

A radio caller talking about George VI dying said she, as a young girl, was in the butcher's shop with her mother when the news came on the radio.

The butcher immediately said the shop was closed, ushered everyone out, and pulled down the blinds; remaining closed for a week.

My dad came home from the Korean War on leave the day George VI died.  Dad was expecting to go on a week long bender.  Unfortunately the pubs closed for a week.   He hated royalty after that.

Supporting the monarchy is the whole point of the Tory Party . If Charles proves a liability they will probably look to replay Baldwin's strategy from the 1930s and find a suitable replacement. Also worth remembering that Charles is the same age as many of the aged celebs now filling the obituary columns. The heirs to long lived monarchs rarely reign long.

I can't see anything like that happening this time despite her being so popular and hardworking; she has given seventy years of service.

People moan about shops being closed on Christmas Day and Easter Sunday.  Close them for a week and they will be running around screaming.

My ex next door neighbour was a sub editor on the Telegraph in the 1980s and 90s.  It was editorial policy then that no criticism of Prince Charles was allowed.  Appears to remain the same today.

If I was Charles as soon as I got onto the throne I would make large cash handouts to the army and then make my horse Prime Minister. Actually the last policy is probably not a bad idea and might bolster his popularity

That's pretty sensible IMO. As the comments on this thread indicate he is widely unpopular anyway and if the press started encouraging that then he'd end up being a hate figure as reigning monarch which could mean the end of the monarchy.

I may not want him to be King but if the alternative is becoming a republic with Presidents Blair, Brown and Cameron for the next twenty years then I will stand there and cheer him
