Alright Brits the US media has gone nuclear with news of your Royal Baby. I have a few questions for you British members.

#1 Does the average British citizen get excited about the Royal family? If you believe the media here you guys do little more than gossip all day about every little thing any and all royals are doing. Is it all Brits or just the stay at home moms and pre-teens.

#2: I know Prince Harry is an Apache pilot in the military which is pretty bad ass. If they don't have jobs with the military what do they do all day? Do they decide what to do or are they told?

#3: Who the hell pays for all the damn palaces and castles and all the hoopla that goes into the Royals doing pretty much anything? Helicopters and armored cars are being paid for by someone. If they don't work is it just a taxpayer funded welfare life?

#4: Isn't this the same royal family that tortured the ever living shit out of your relatives and killed them in mass during the middle ages? Time must heal all wounds.

#5: When are you going to fix your gun laws? I just did a little googleing and a chill went down my spine. There are many here fantasizing about a copy and paste of your gun bans here.

That is all!
Glad some of you are shooters!

My English buddy could give a rat's ass about the royals, and claims that that attitude is prevalent among middle/lower class Englishmen.

I'm British and don't care. I'd rather stick a red hot knitting needle up my nose and into my brain than concern myself with whatever they are doing. It's all bollocks.

Who said anything about bashing?

If it wasn't for the British we wouldn't have the second amendment!

All I know is right this second, the future King of England is probably sucking on some tit and pissing himself this very second. According to some English porn that I have seen; not much is going to change over the years...

Most of the population are in favour of the Monarchy. A recent poll said that 17% of the population were in favour of an elected head of state rather than the current system - which considering how many immigrants and left-wing nut jobs we are blighted with, isn't a great deal. Most Brits like the royal family, however only about 20% or so, get "really excited about them"

#2: I know Prince Harry is an Apache pilot in the military which is pretty bad ass. If they don't have jobs with the military what do they do all day? Do they decide what to do or are they told?
All of the Royal family support multiple charities and trusts. The Queen works pretty much every day and has a very hectic schedule - especially considering she is in her 80s:

#3: Who the hell pays for all the damn palaces and castles and all the hoopla that goes into the Royals doing pretty much anything? Helicopters and armored cars are being paid for by someone. If they don't work is it just a taxpayer funded welfare life?
The Monarchy will bring in over a billion pounds this year in tourism and media revenues etc. The "damn palaces and castles" actually belong to the Country, they aren't the current Monarch's to do with as they please.

#4: Isn't this the same royal family that tortured the ever living shit out of your relatives and killed them in mass during the middle ages? Time must heal all wounds.
Isn't that a bit like Black people blaming all White people for being related to slave masters?

#5: When are you going to fix your gun laws? I just did a little googleing and a chill went down my spine. There are many here fantasizing about a copy and paste of your gun bans here.
Gun laws suck here - but they are not as bad as they could be. Check out the gun law thread in the UKHTF

That is all!
Glad some of you are shooters!

I'll answer #2.

If they weren't in the military, what would the royals do? The same things they used to do in the past. Riding around on the backs of peasants and racing each other, stuff like that.

Did you know that Buckingham palace has a catapult on the roof? When the Queen is bored she goes up there with some corgis, has them loaded onto the catapult and fires them. Then she shoots them while they're in the air.

You miserable peons have trap and skeet shooting, she has corgi shooting.

Every second Saturday is "Orf with their heads" day.

Nah. They fought for independence against a government that make the current US government look libertarian in comparison.

No I'm not all that interested in the goings on of the royal family. But I do respect them.

You've never met an Anarchist until you've met a British one! Since I'm a Son of the American Revolution, I'm a Citizen NOT a "subject", and I don't believe in hereditary power; both my siblings were DUMB enough to vote 0'bummer the first time. (Our Mother did NOT).

The queen gets welfare for everything and is probably the richest person in the world. Who knows what they have stashed in Swiss banks and layers of corporations and trusts from hundreds of years of plunder. You're talking OLDEST money

Absolutely correct. And on top of all of that, she's the worldwide head of the Masons too.

I have a question too. Do your lawn mowers discharge clippings on the left or the right side of the deck?
