Subject: RE: BS: Prince Harry and fancy dress.
Gibson, your Presidents may last only two terms, but then you infallibly elect another fuckwit every time! The only difference is that our royal fuckwits come and go but have no executive power, and thus can safely be ignored. Meanwhile they prevent politicians getting their sticky hands on uncontrolled political power and those of us who enjoy it (far more than will admit to doing so)gain a real pleasure from the marvellous pomp and ceremony - (saw your monkey being 'inaugurated' - today - is THAT what you call a state occasion? Come over and see how the grown-ups do it!) As a bonus, now and then the system throws up a leader of real worth - both Elizabeths for example. In dicey circumstances such as a major world war even distictly third-rate monarchs, such as George VI can play a useful role as a focus for national unity.
