I tried very hard not to enter into this subject ,as I don`t live in the country (I still love),so I`m not in a position to pass remarks on how it`s being run at present or in the future,but I totally agree with post 284 ,the royal family are a waste of space.period.

The fact that you reside in the Oblast of Greater Sydney shoul not cloud your judgment in involvement with the outside world, as is common with the denizens of the Sydney Sub culture (all of Sydney being a sub culture). As a Scot, and having the grace of G-D to be born in Glasgow no matter your geographic location, you are every bit entitled to your opinion on the prospect of Scotland becoming a republic. My only reservation about independence is that there would be no separation from the German dynasty foisted illegally on Scotland and Scots (keep in mind there is no precedent for a king of Scotland in history or law). This would tie the country into the act of the illegal, as far as Scotland was concerned, Act Of Settlement. After the death of the last Stuart monarch and under the auspices of the Act Of Union Scotland was to be free to choose its' own monarchy. England happy with a German king, who spoke no English and who thoroughly disliked the country any way, foisted their choice of monarch on the Scots. Bear in mind this was so popular an act in Scotland that wars were fought and cultures destroyed in the aftermath of wars to reinstate the Stuarts.

Pass on your remarks; you are doing no worse that what else passes for informed opinion on this subject here.

'Fraid not mate. In truth I couldn't give a tuppeny damn for Connolly's production company any more than I care one iota for Shur Sean Connery wittering on about independence for the country he loves so much he refuses to live here.

On the King remark you spotted it, of course I do know that Queenie will still be our head - I'm not a royalist though, so it actually doesn't matter to me.

I do like the two boys Wills and Harry though and some of the others are ok, as is the Queen.

You might convince me yet - I should warn you it won't be easy though, broadly I do agree with some of the other things you've mentioned, but I don't want to take this off topic - I'll find a suitable moment to add my 2c worth on the designated thread.

Cant think of anything better than having the english royal family of never worked and never will billionaires being the Scottish answer to Evita Peron. But real royalty at that, still upholding the divine right of kings, to hold more land than they can use, more money than they can spend, more houses than they can live in and more idiot flunkeys than they can count to make sure they never have to lift a finger to cut a ribbon at a baby show.

At least Laird Connely and her majesty's royal knight Sirconniry, made some show of earning their place in an inequitable class ridden society.
