    You are right. The Queen is the last of the royal diplomats. The remainder of the royal family are Hooray Henrys and hangers on. Time to go.
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    Tourists will come without a royal family as well, just check France
    And yes I pay (way too much) tax in the UK and you Corbyn voters will make it worse.
    Do write to those nice people at the Telegraph and tell them they got it wrong. Show them your reasons.

    Queen's income rises again as cost of Royal family is 62p per person in the UK

    Oh goody politicisation of a tragedy to win arguments nice! - straight out of the lefty playbook.

    I'm a JezzyBull supporter?

    I think it just skipped a generation.

    Every time the world moves on in any way you complain about not liking it.

    It is. If you didn't point out I'm confident that this thread would end in a bad direction.

    The Queen is very old. Brexit is likely to take several years. So the odds are she might never get to see what's on the other side of this mess... and that her death will completely cock up the final stages of negotiations as the entire world goes crazy for months.

    Well Brexit is about moving backwards -

    Did I miss something?
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
