Surely at some point someone who knows her should be sitting her down and have a wee chat? 

They're probably delighted to have her out the fucking way to be honest

Do people care about King Chico as much as they did with Elizabeth?
It seems the Queen was at least a decent egg in a family of complete wrong’uns and deviants.
There was a Tweet going around last week showing survey results over recent months to the question, "Will Prince Charles make a good Monarch?"

'Yes' was pretty much constant around the mid 30s% mark. The most recent survey, carried out after the Queen died, had it at 62%.

Hmmm, was she though? There's been some great PR on her part.

I think it’s also very much a generational thing. 
My parents (also regular Kirk attendees) are gripping by all the coverage and watching most of it.

I asked my youngest son (15) if it was discussed by his friends at school and he said ‘not really’ they were more interested in the fact that they are getting Monday off school and see royalty as an outdated irrelevance. 

I used to be somewhere in between the two, but am becoming increasingly republican in my own outlook. 

 I also think the reason that many lined the route last week was more a sense of witnessing a bit of history. We have never seen a Monarch die in Scotland in almost 400 years and probably never will again. 

Och, I'm sure that could be arranged...

Every time I see the “70 years of service” line, I’m tempted to add the word “profitable”.

She spent 70 profitable years lining her pockets in ways no previous monarch even dreamed of. The royals had a relatively modest private fortune under her father. She amassed for her clan (and this is guesswork because the true numbers are concealed) hundreds of millions of pounds via dodgy deals, dodgier tax arrangements, and successive compliant governments making sure she was always exempt from or had loopholes through legislation touching finance.

She was a fucking spiv. Her sense of duty was always primarily to her family’s coffers.

Her 'service' involved travelling around the world in the utmost luxury, staying in the utmost luxury, eating in the utmost luxury and shaking a few hands. Yet loads of folk think that it was some sort of self sacrificing, noble, hard work she did.

Thought you were talking about Maw Kardashian for a moment there.

In fairness having a paedo son can be costly.  Better to have a few quid behind you.

Has anymore made more for doing less?

Even drug cartels have the constant threat of the law or rivals.

The Queen despite being credited with "working" literally could not fall off.

Impervious to the law, protected in all ways by the state, money flowing in regardless of.... Well anything really.

Theres never been a racket like that.
