I am not a fan of the Windsor royal hangers on and I think the British monarchy needs to be drastically scaled back.
But I am an admirer of Queen Elizabeth II and I was impressed with her address to the nation on Sunday evening.
I admire Elizabeth because of her devotion of her duties over a 70+ year period.
Anyone, of any race, of any age, who devotes themselves to their duties and responsibilities, is a good person and deserves both respect and the acknowledgement of their service.
As I say, I do think that the Windsor hanger’s on need to go. There is a very good reason to keep the heir and heir number two on full time retainers.
But, in the 21st century, there is absolutely no reason to keep people like Anne, Andrew, Harry etc on the payroll – not to mention the whole gang of dukes and lords.
Also, there is no need for the royal family to have a whole load of palaces all over the place – costing the public multi millions
Buckingham Palace or Windsor is enough.
Let the others be turned into hospitals, schools or sold off to hotel chains.
REPUBLICANS AND BRITISH MILITARY DOCTORS AND NURSES:
I’m told the Shinners would object to British military doctors and nurses working in our hospitals helping to cope with COVID 19?
There is such a thing as Catholic bigotry as well as Protestant bigotry.
I would be very grateful to be treated by any doctor or nurse if I were sick – regardless of their background.
Doctors and nurses, especially, at this time, are true heroes.
We should treasure and honour every single one of them.
