The Queen

Like millions of right thinking people the antics of Harry and his wife ticking off the ‘firm’ in oh-so-sad rhetoric to a ‘shock-jockette’ are indicative of five year olds who have lost their play pen.  Even the fact that Meghan dragged Harry off to the land of short history, QAnon, Flatearthers and idiot creationists to get a hearing speaks volumes.  Then we have the ‘jockette’ determined to create headlines using him and her as rating catalysts.  It doesn’t get more pathetic.

We Australians, being the recent colonists, have a history going back millennia with ‘Royals’.  Not because they rule anything [don’t tell the Ghost of Gough] but because they represent our history and still create stability by the very fact that they and we have that millennia of history.

Can’t change history and history is what makes us!

There is no doubt we are all happy with Liz as our titular head of state and indeed the church of England into which I was abducted as a kid [none of this catholic stuff – note that those same Catholics have refused to give back any Australia medals despite condoning child abuse but still accuse Margaret Court for her beliefs]. 

I believe Liz is the worlds richest person and also acts as caretaker for her personal estates as well as many many state assets.  Big job preserving history and I believe that’s her role – to make sure the world has a safe place which recognises history.  The fact that she is not short of a quid is good news.  Harry and Meghan on the other hand seem to expect Liz to fund their lifestyle even after demonising the firm.  I just don’t understand the stupidity associated with this.  Harry was patron of the Invictus games – a great initiative – but seems to have also thrown that away losing all military rank and probably the title ‘Duke’.  

In short, we need our Queen as a measure of stability and grace.  We need to see royal ‘being human’ spats but most importantly how they are handled – with stability and grace.  We need to be able to compare a class act with say Trump to realise there is a better way.

So yes, you royalists, our Queen is a class act and what she stands for in terms of our history is just plain great!  Further, we have her system of Government which is absolutely the world's best with checks and balances everywhere.  No republican president with powers of pardon et alia and no dictator ‘for life’ rule.  Their systems are broken, ours are not.

Long live our continuing monarchy as they represent who we have been and who we are.
