Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

hubris...

Rolf Harris has been awarded an OBE CBE (I've been corrected by the ever-vigilant Davo).

Congrats, Rolf...

What was that?!?!?!?

O
rder of the British Empire?

Que?

'scuse me!?!

Empress Elizabeth?

Not bloody likely!!!

My dictionary tells me that an Empire's sovereign has the rank of Emperor or Empress. It also tells me that this rank is higher than the rank King or Queen.

So if wee Lizzie von Battenberg, nee Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, wants to hand out OBE's MBE's and CME's, then she must be saying that there is an Empire and that she is an Empress. Either that or these gongs have been awarded by an usurper and therefore they are worth zip...

What gives?

Is this Empire by stealth?

Is this a Clayton's Empire?

And didn't I read somewhere that the lineage of British regents has actually been illegal ever since Henry Bolingbroke (Henry IV) usurped the throne in 1399?

Now we've got one who reckons there's an empire and that she's an empress?

The hubris!!! The hubris!!!

Bloody Pommie upstarts !!!

Seeya all in Gitmo...

I saw the interview and he'd also like a knighthood. He'd also like to paint Charles and Camilla. As long as he doesn't paint them on horseback or we'll never work out which is which.

Don't be nasty to Liz, she's done her back in, those crowns are heavy.

and don't be nasty to "la dame des camélias" she waited a long time fer that particular Scorp.

mm, watched the TV program where Rolf "painted" Liz. Wonder if he could organise a "body painting" session with Chuck and 'ís bird, and allow me t'video it. Guaranteed t'get 2-3 mill "hits" on youTube .. heh.

Don't be nasty to Lizzie? I'm not being nasty. Anyway, she's presiding of a humugous con game called "monarchy". What a load of old shyte monarchy really is. It's pure crap. It's the ultimater form of one person/family/clique (take your pick) convincing us that they've got the right to rule over us. Even in a "ceremonial" way, I detest this supercillious rubbish. I'd say "Off with their heads!" if it wasn't seditious to say that... ;-)

I want to know how much we pay for the "privilege" of having the old duck condescend to us.

I resent such pompous garbage as "monarchy".

Nothing against the old duck personally, you understd. It's just that she dsigusts me by her lack of honesty by not declaring the monarchy "an idea whose use-by date has expired" and thereby disbanding it and retiring on the standard old age pension and going to live in a coucil flat.

Bloody pompous upstarts! If it wasn't agaist Little Johnnie HoWARd's sedition laws I'd say "Viva la Revolucion!!!!" (Peaceful People Power revolution, of course...)

Your bearship:
Demanding consistency in the rules, syntax and semantics of power shows clearly that:
1) you are not one of those in power.
2) you have not yet caved in and accepted the basic nature of power: the powerful MAKE the rules, the rest of us FOLLOW the rules.
3. the powerful do as they damn well please.

The aristocracy only rose to the top by being able to lie, kill and steal better than anybody else. Same as a few political parties.

GS, JahTeh, I would say that it's only happening because not enough of them are getting shot, but since that would be a seditious thing to say, I won't say it... :-)

We'd trade a "Shrub" fer ur Monarch anytime!

Sorry, DS, but you get to keep The Shrub. We've already relegated our monarch to purely ceremonnial duties and placed her pretty much under house arrest2, only allowed out to make idiots feel better. But she still costs the public purse way too much money and should, as said, be stripped of here ill-begotten wealth and made to live out her time in a council flat on an average pension. Nothing less is acceptable.

Her Maj costs the British money. It's her dumb reps out here that costs us. Get rid of the useless GG & G twats and give the money to the poor....ME.

The Royal family doesn't cost you nearly as much as the Bush crime family does!!!

DS, yes, I agree, but you can vote Bush out.

Aha! This time you're wrong old son. Only Congress can vote him out and there's no chance of that since they're all part of the same criminal enterprise.
