I've long since come to realize that the monarchy does not represent the average British person. I think it's high time they had to get a job and stop mooching off of taxpayer money. That, and I'd love to see the Queen removed from Canadian currency. Also, when I go to court to fight something, I don't think I should be doing battle with Regina. _________________

Well to be honest.... I think the term "Paki" is a bit too over-rated. Its like calling someone from Australia Aussie!
As for the sentiments Harry had.... yes, those should be disciplined. _________________

How does one "allow" a three year old kid to smoke? First of all you would have to FORCE or COMPEL/PERSUADE the child to put a fully lit cigarette in their mouth, draw, inhale and exhale the smoke. They would have to do this several times before the child feels that they would have to smoke. This is ridiculous and the lack of any measure against the responsible is equally appalling as Charles has already said.

Yeah, I can see how that could piss 'one' off.
The 'Commonwealth' just isn't relevent anymore.
I totally agree. As for Australia, we would be better off as a republic. But monarchists are a funny bunch, always suggesting that the country would go downhill if we dared to remove the union jack from our flag. Or the world would end if the british monarchy was ended.
Today on Queen's Day, an annual holiday here in the Netherlands, someone tried to hit the bus with the Dutch royal family with his car. He didn't hit the bus, but drove straight through the crowd before he crashed into a monument, killing 4 people. Another 13 people are wounded, 5 of them badly.
