Quote from: klondike on September 14, 2022, 08:06:41 PMI'm no huge fan of the monarchy but I sure as hell prefer an apolitical heriditary monarchy to a political presidency. The Queen's very long reign is unlikely to be equalled for a very long time. She did a good job of it avoiding most controversy and provided us with stability. At the time of everything of any importance in most of our lives she was there as our Queen.Worldwide she is just "The Queen" not "The Queen of..."
Quote from: GrannyMac on September 14, 2022, 10:39:45 PMIndeed. The queen has been far more benign than the type who put themselves forward to be elected heads of state. Her duty has come first, they are driven by power and ego.
Quote from: klondike on September 14, 2022, 10:16:30 PMAs I said I'm no huge fan but given everywhere has a head of state I'd rather that head of state was a figurehead than a politician. Politicians are rather too fond of things like their legacy which is far more likely to be something that costs me more money than supporting a monarchy for no useful purpose.How many foreign tourists does Biden, Macron or von der Leyen attract.
Quote from: klondike on September 15, 2022, 09:45:14 AMExactly where did I say all the tourist came to see the Queen? It is certain that some do and I suspect more than would come to see a President.
Quote from: Scrumpy on September 15, 2022, 11:45:58 AMConsidering we are but a small island we do quite well with tourist visiting us..The Queen attracted many, many tourist.. as do royal residence..People from all over the world are queuing to pay their last respects to a woman that they truly love. This isn't just mass hysteria as we have seen in the past.. This is genuine.. When I lived in Australia.. and people knew I lived near London I was asked had I seen the Queen..
