Something that Charles will need to learn to do.

There is no point in a constitutional monarchy. 
Second point- if they don’t say or do anything- see point 1.

That really does beg questions about why anybody would bother with a constitutional monarchy then.

If the monarch's job is literally to do and say nothing, then why not just have a republic?

If you wanted to keep the 'subsidising old b*****d to do hee-haw' angle, we could have the entire country pitch in a tenner and give it all to some random OAP to live out their last in luxury, with a bank holiday when they snuff it. If we could apply a chicken farming efficiency approach to it and start busting them out the hospices for a final fortnight in the Playboy Mansion, could be looking at a day off every 3 weeks.

Be careful what you ask for.  There'll be some alternative monarch-less universe in which the the Scottish parliament was officially opened by some Jade Goody and Des Clarke clown duo.

Exactly - just as in Ireland and Germany.

We've just had probably the single greatest scientific breakthrough in living memory with a team from the Francis Crick Institute finding the smoking gun in the role of pollution in causing cancer and also how cancer develops in the first place. They have up-ended decades of how we thought cancer operated. This has the potential of being a Nobel Prize winning discovery. A stunning example in the wake of the endless stream of covid frauds masquerading as scientists, of how valuable real, actual science can be.

And the BBC have buried it amongst 31 (thirty-one) articles about this fucking dead pensioner.

I am honestly close to a complete and utter heads gone right now.

You are correct.

Just read about this on BBC.

It does indeed appear to be a major breakthrough and certainly not a good idea to be living in a heavily polluted area if it can be avoided.

goodbye england's rose

One of my favourite things remains Stephen Fry (in one of his sporadic bouts of earnest but hilarious lunacy) writing a newspaper column which called sweet Jade “a Princess Diana from the wrong side of the tracks”.

Speaking of pubs, I was in a fairly busy pub in Dundee yesterday and they'd been told to not play any music. We shortly left for the pub across the street that was just about to start karaoke...

What pubs? The barmaid in the Phoenix was in full funeral garb this afternoon. Stopped just short of the black veil.

Although I find it strange when people get upset when famous people they've never met die, I can kind of understand it on a certain level. A famous athlete, actor or musician will have produced moments or pieces art that will stay with you forever. Significant policiticians will have a profound impact on your life.

The Queen? Abstract nouns: constsistency, stability, duty. I think most people, even the most fervent royalists, would struggle to recall more than half a dozen things she's ever actually said or done.

Mental.

 

If it wasn't for her we wouldn't have money or stamps

Some teenagers have cum-socks. Oor Adam has a cum-flag.

And remember, the monarchy’s “continuity” of ancient and modern only includes the sparkly, flag-waving, faux-medieval cosplaying stuff - it doesn’t apply to the centuries of corruption, genocide, and colonisation. Just forget about that.
