Yes, the royal family has their ups and downs but some are trying to do good. Unfortunely Diana is gone and Furgy seems {to me anyway} to have dropped of the face of the earth. Charles is a major embaressment to the Queen. And the boys what from what I have seen of then would rather be left to their own devices.
If Charles is next in line then not only God save the King but God help the Brits...
I agree
also without the Queen and the royal assent, the government could do pretty much whatever they wanted (assuming they have the suport of the house of lords) and with the current government the country could be screwed up pretty quickly

not really, they pay their own taxes now, what money do they use anyway, and with Labour raising taxes by the minuite, the country should survive (do you know labour spend (on average) 50 million, PER HOUR)
