Queenie poos....



Only under the Fuhrer.

Course they do, and I expect he can sack Merkel too, in principle.
Folk need to understand that only the Septics have the two roles combined in one person - as we used to when they broke away. King George III was, as was normal at the time, head of state and in control of the Govt. It took that Cherman, Prince Albert, to convince young Vicky to keep her pretty nose out of it.
Most states these days have a figurehead president. In France, the President seems to be the one in charge, however.

Usually is completely irrelevant. Britain can do what it like in that regard.

It isn't about odds. Britain is one of the last in Europe to have royal parasites anymore. Britain is free to pull the plug on them and have anything they like instead.

Irrelevant to what Britain can do.

The other obvious alternative is to just pull the plug on the royals and carry on regardless with nothing instead of those useless parasites.

And they would likely tell you to fuck off.

I couldn’t care less. I hardly ever use the coins and she isn't on the notes.

So who is Head of State, then? Who then is, in theory, our ultimate protection against a dictatorial government? Remember, the armed forces serve thee Crown, not the Govt. When Maggie sent Our Boys south, she needed (IIRC) Orders in Council (i.e. permission) from Brenda before proceeding.

Don’t need one.

The legal system.

Makes a lot more sense for the govt of the day to decide what the armed forces do.

Completely stupid system to have some inbred unelected fool have any say at all on something like that.
And the reality is that Liz has no say at all on that.

Which is where we ended up after Charles I was bumped off. Not that change wasn't needed, mind, but we in this country were lucky that we were able to go from the divine right of Charlie to rule in 1625 or so to the beginnings of a constitutional monarchy once James had left in 1690 or so. We also got a Bill of Rights out of the deal.

Nope.

Some of us have noticed that the world has moved on just a tad since Cromwell.

Yes, that was certainly understandable at that time.
But even you should have noticed that things are just a tad different now.

Yep, even you should have noticed that Britain hasn't actually been stupid enough to get involved there anymore.

Have fun listing the full civil wars that have happened in the great democracies in the last century.
Yes, plenty of places like Ireland and Greece and Yugoslavia and Spain lagged a long way behind the great democracies on that, but even you should have noticed that the great democracies haven't had a full civil war in quite a while now, let alone a military coup.
And Liz would never have done a damned thing if Maggie had chosen to do what she didn’t approve of anyway.
