"How strawberry floating dare they live their lives in the way they want. banana splits!"



You've been this way since school
Dysfunctional, translucent
Royalty on your wall
So desperately mundane
They're inbred baby just like you
But you'd love the chance to eat their food
Even though it has been chewed
Royal correspondent
Sad and lonely
Royal correspondent
Kills her daily
Dream of the Daily Mail
It is the Holy Grail
And then the BBC
Your life would be complete
Build a fountain, wash away the poor
Just as long as your motives are pure
Hold on tight or you just might lose her
Royal correspondent
Wears their Sunday best
Royal correspondent
Smarter than the rest
Royal correspondent
Smarter than the rest
Royal correspondent
Smarter than the rest
Royal correspondent
Smarter than the rest
Royal correspondent
Smarter than the rest
Smarter than the rest

I think the issue that people leaving the Royal Family is an existential threat to the whole institution. With Harry leaving it adds weight to anyone else wanting to leave and it that starts happening regularly then I think they'll risk losing the reverence people hold them in,

Amusement under late capitalism is the prolongation of work.

So what's the actual issue exactly?

If The Crown is anything to go by, Margret had the right idea; drown it all out with booze, parties and sex. If it were my tax being abused in favour of her escapades, I'd feel quite good about it.

You would have thought the Scum would be happy with one less family sponging off the state.

I don't think this is going to be a good decade for the royals anyway, tbh. Without THE QUEEN I think it all begins to fall apart.

Once she dies I say we round the rest of them up and bust out the old guillotine

The right-wing media are demonising MegHan (can't possibly think why????) in an attempt to deflect the failings of Bozo and 100,000 needless deaths.

They're certainly not the absolute least of the country's worries. I think the reverence to the Royal family helps the 'know your place' attitude of our society which leads to the Tory party in government

Backing crooks in the cabinet and ignoring the unions in favour of supporting the government.

Feels great to finally have a proper opposition again, Sir Keith Simper MP, the most senior Tory in the Labour party.

I actually had hope for Starmer, but he's been disappointing so far.

I was going to quit being a member, but I can honestly see Starmer not making it to the next election, and the subsequent leadership contest would be wild. Who do the Labour right offer next? Yvette Cooper??

I'm pretty sure I've actually already seen Observer columnist types talking about how Yvette Cooper would be ten trillion points ahead or whatever.
