I would not mind at all if Her Majesty used a wheelchair or mobility scooter in public but I think the decision should be hers.
A mobile throne, Shirley.

Does anyone remember when Chas started an avalanche and killed a Major at Klosters?

It's clear the monarchy should be abolished and replaced by a democratically elected head of state. We need a fair deal for everyone, against the elitism and privilege epitomised by royalty.

The regime based on hierarchy, deference and inherited wealth, status and power. It is a leftover from feudalism that defies modern aspirations for democracy, egalitarianism and meritocracy.

The royals are steeped in a history of war, colonialism and slavery. The crown estate derives much of its assets – including properties and some of the crown jewels – from past royal conquest and exploitation. The true scale of the Queen’s private wealth has never been disclosed, though it has been estimated to run into the hundreds of millions of pounds.

According to the elitist values of the monarchical order, we are “subjects” of Her Majesty, under her dominion. To add insult to injury, the most stupid, immoral royal is, by virtue of the family into which they are born, deemed more fit to be our head of state than the wisest, most ethical commoner. That’s just plain wrong – and offensive.

I've not seen the crown. Just remember that Chas couldn't get done for it cos he had diplomatic immunity.

I'd like to see Khan refuse a similar invite from the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge. Then watch the Wail fury, lolz!

Kate and Tom Cruise holding hands at the Top Gun 2 London premiere the other night would’ve caused much angst in the Sussex household I’m sure. 😎
