    How could she not be in favor of Trident? She was a warmonger like Maggie and like your new one now. Inbred Bluebloods love war.

    All this stuff is very grey.

    My first trip overseas after Covid this year was to Ghana in West Africa a country that if you look at the history books is not atypical of the British empire. Basically it turned up ran the place for about 70 years, took a bunch of natural resources, built a bunch of infrastructure of roads and railways to help that and some nice schools teaching 'be nice to Britain and speak English'. Then in the 1950s like most of those kind of places the Ghanians said fuck off and that was that.

    Except when I checked into my hotel I was struck by the fact that there was a massive picture of the queen behind the desk despite there being no other people in the hotel from the UK the whole time I was there and although very few people spoke English to each other all the road signs were in English and it is still the official language of the country.

    I wasn't praising their shitty pizza. I find it odd that a multi-national corporation would post a condolence for a Blueblood warmonger.

    Why would you even notice?

    Dope munchies?

    Pizza Express posted a similar message - you should have gone for that given it was her favorite son's alibi.

    Makes sense.

    I guess the only thing is like the UK you guys have had some terrible leaders recently so it can be difficult sometimes to win the argument that voters will come up with a much better head of state.

    Still it has to be less bad just on principle.

    As fucking kings and queens go she was very good but that is no reason to have a king or queen. It is often very misunderstood I think especially outwith the UK about how little power the British monarch actually has. There is an argument that I don't think I agree with but it is a point, that having your elected leader going once a week and spending an hour explaining what they are doing to a person who is meant to embody the country may in some way reduce the maniacal power of a single person especially if that person they 'report' to has been there for decades.
    Sounds like having to go explain to your grandmother all your grownup stupid shit that she can see right through having seen and experienced the worst the world has thrown at her for nearly a century... some value there.

    Yes, indeed. Agreed 100%. Can't pretend otherwise, 'cuz it's fact.

    Always kinda liked her, myself. Didn't much care for the other Royals, although Fergie seems like she'd be a bit of fun when the full moon is out.

    Maybe she wanted to get out of the castle and go to the pub for a beer once in a while. She could get drunk and threaten to chop off somebody's head....

    She probably didn't drive around London but she did get in a Jaguar and drive around Windsor and she drove Land Rovers on her private property.

    She will be the last respected British monarch. People aren't going to like King Charles. But Britain has had idiot monarchs before.

    I used to handle corporate leases and some were in Canada. I renewed several leases where Elizebeth Windsor was the lessor on the contract. The British monarch is a HUGE land owner and yes she gets rent for some of it. It's called crown property.

    I wonder if Charle’s connections to Jimmy Savile will come to haunt him? After the respects to his mom are paid he goes under the microscope.

    What about his connections to his brother? A little harder to run away from that one. If the "King of England" had any real power anymore, Charles would probably go old school and either throw Andrew in the dungeon or execute him.

    She was trained to drive and repair army trucks during the second world war. She would drive around her estates quite a lot. There is way less security in these places I think than you have for a US president, more like ex president level.

    More like he's the steward of it. Most the assets remain in the family. Also I don't know how you calculate the worth of the British Royal Family. One thing for sure, they own a bunch of land worldwide that they collect the rents on. Why the bankers became more powerful than the royals is the royals owned the land but they didn't have enough liquid cash to finance their activities. Bankers loved wars because they could finance both sides and make money. To this day investment banks usually have the best intel on what's going on in the world. The problem with the world today is the banking class have become the most powerful entity in the world. Governments can keep the bankers in check if the bankers don't own enough politicians but in the west right now the bankers clearly own the politicians. There are no checks on them currently.

    Its complicated. I remember there was a year when she went down massively on the rich list when a deal was cut.

    I don't know the actual figure but it's not $38 billion closer to a a few hundred million because there was a huge grey area about which bits were owned by the country and which by the royal family personally so a deal was cut whereby they kept some bits but mainly got a grant each year instead. Because the world has become so fucked up in recent years with so many billionaires working out how to play the system they aren't even unusually rich by super rich standards now.

    She wasn't on the top 200 rich list for example...

    My mom was into horse racing and my parents went to Mongolia to see this big horse race they do there. Princess Ann was there to see the race. My mom said the plane the princess flew in on was really awful. She was thinking a member of the royal family would be flying on a nicer plane and not some old beater. So yeah maybe the Windsors don’t have the cash flow people think they have or maybe the kids weren’t getting much.

    Flew her aback to London on a C-17, the most tracked flight ever...

    I'm a Lucky Charms-Irish Republican and it sucks to see the Queen mum go and be replaced by a predictable cunt "clean-my-desk-you-peasants!" Chuck...

    I'm not saying that they aren't privileged as fuck, they have lots of servants and so on but it's different from Hollywood or billionaire rich. I'm not sure it is even a thing in the US but there is an English aristocratic thing which is all about living on the land and wearing old tweed clothes and mud and animals kind of thing. It's the opposite of the gold toilet Trump thing, I guess because there is a level of wealth and status where you really really have nothing to prove.

    I don't believe we have any sort of royalty type rich stuff in the US. The heirs of our most famous leaders live in obscurity.

    We do have opulent rich folks like Trump and Hollywood types... but also folks that own massive amounts of land and businesses who are just the most down-to-earth simple people who don't flaunt their wealth at all. You wouldn't know they were rich if you met them.

    Royalty here leaves a bad taste in people's mouths. Not part of our culture. We've become spoiled slackers to a certain degree but the US was always about meritocracy. Everyone has a shot but it's your ability that determines if you are going to stay.
