I've never bought that argument. Tourists come to see the historic buildings etc the things that would still be there if the royal family was done away with. The idea that they bring in tourists is ridiculous. The times when they are seen by the public are so rare that it's negligible if any money is made from them. They cost more than they have ever brought in.

The monarchy is an outdated remnant of a now non existant dictatorship the sooner they are done away with the better.

Not superstitious? and you believe it it brings bad luck if you are.?
Are you just joking? If not can you see what is wrong with that sentence?

You can't deny the international interest in the royals. Just think about how many people watched Wills and Kate earlier this year.

RE: Queen Elizabeth is in the Freemason!!!
That doesn't bring in tourists though. Like I said a rare occasion.
To be fair the people who seemed most interested in it did seem to be from abroad.
I honestly don't know anyone who cared about the wedding which is a shock since I know a fair few royalists and they genuinely couldn't have cared less.

The wedding was a rip off how is it fair that two millionaires get their wedding paid for them from taxes. That money could be better spent on one of the many under funded projects and organisations in this country most of which had their budgets cut about the same time.

@Karl my appoligies. You can't always tell what's a joke and what isn't as we get all sorts of people posting here. Some are just like that.

To be honest I just enjoyed the street parties. One of my neighbours had one and it was great Big Grin!

PS. I'm a little drunk so if I make no sense then it's my bad, just tell me I'm being a dick Big Grin that applies to all my posts for the rest of the night.

I wouldn't have know you were drunk if you hadn't said. Your spelling and stuff was fine.
The only party here that I know of was an unofficial party in kelvingrove park which ended up being broken up by the police after some thugs started throwing bottles.

I suppose it wasn't quite the celebration on your side of the border as we had here. When I think about it though I can imagine Scotland not being overly pro-royal.

The royalists I Was refering to are actually from northern Ireland on the loyalist side. So the royals get their loyalty and they couldn't have cared less about the wedding.

The thing about the Scotland and royalty, depending on which sect of Christianity you are from largly reflects how you feel about the royals. The supporters of the royals tend to be Protestant, and the people against them tend to be Catholics.

It's very clear to me that many of them don't have a clue about their own faith (I've met Protestants who say they don't believe in Jesus but still say they are Protestants, clearly missing the point on being a Christian) and about why they support or dislike the royals. Many just take it as I'm catholic/Protestant so I must hate/support the royals because that's what my faith seems to do.

It's ridiculous really. You also get the troubles in Ireland spilling over to here on a smaller scale just because someone is descended from the Irish or because they are of a certain sect of Christianity. You even get people who support one team or another based on that to.

Bemore I like your thinking viva la revolution Tongue

I hate to break it to you, but Queen Elizabeth is 400 years dead... little hard to be a freemason when you're dead.
