@Kuei Fei

If it was Charles (not the Queen) now during this T May-Corbyn mess, a Republic will happen in a few days. In political messes like that, a Charles sort is everything the Republicans need laundry

When you throw in all the BS that Harry and William and Kate and the Yorkies have doled out, I wager that Corbyn will have no problems shutting down their lavish subsidies and asking questions about where all that money is going if in fact they aren't maintaining the palaces.

The BRF isn't a business, "the Firm" is a Ponzi scheme.

If Corbyn and Labor take charge, HM will have to stock up on gin and other booze since Labor usually gets a full election landslide due to the RF's antics.

^ There is no possible way for Corbyn to become PM. He just hasn't got the numbers in the Commons to do it, no matter how you cut it. Also, no election in my lifetime, and I've lived a long time, which has been won by the British Labour Party, (landslide or not) on anything to do with the BRF. That was so even in the 1990s Diana/Charles warring days. The Royal Family is never injected into any political campaign.

Not openly, but the issue now is that unlike Diana/Charles, William and Harry are no longer the hot princes loaded with potential. This is also worse economic times than the Eighties and I do believe that people are a lot more angry. All those comments talking about even Harry and even HM. Staff are speaking out about low wages and now people think they have the power to strip the RF of it all.

^ Staff at royal palaces have been grumbling about the low wages for ever. I remember complaints even in my childhood. They are perfectly free to leave and get another job, but in most cases don't because being on staff at BP and KP is considered prestigious and is likely to get you a higher paid position anywhere in the world afterwards.

Plus, I don't want to sound like a broken record but comments on DM comment lines do not represent the 63 million plus people who live in the UK.

DM commenters can carry on all they like, and yes, times are tough, very tough in Britain and round the world. A resurgent Labour in the recent election however, (in the view of most political commentators I've read) had more to do with Mrs May's dreadful performance on the campaign trail, Jeremy's good one, and young voters coming out in a post-Brexit fallout (after many failed to vote in the referendum) in favour of Corbyn, than anything to do with the BRF, who weren't mentioned in the whole campaign.

Yes, the Labour Party in Britain isn't so favourably inclined towards the Royal family as the Tories. That's a given. However, all Labour Governments in power since the 1920s, including the Blair govt, have adhered to the rules regarding the Royal family and have certainly not preached revolution.

That will also be the case if Mr Corbyn ever becomes PM. (At the moment, in spite of the assertions of that DM reader Corbyn has far less seats in the Commons than May and had a lesser share of the vote. Unfortunately for him, many of his young London supporters live in already safe Labour electorates.)

Roseala   For someone living  on the other side of the world  you are remarkably well informed about UK political matters...I take my hat off to you . Many don't even take such a keen interest in those of their own country.

Thankyou, marion.  easter-egg-basket I was born and brought up in England though, and lived there on and off when I first married with my Aussie husband. I'm also a political junkie!

I do wonder if whether or not the Tories will in fact get more votes or if Labor will get in.
