mandotim BS: Bishop Suspended - critic of royal wedding (152* d) RE: BS: Bishop Suspended - critic of royal wedding 01 Dec 10

Don't forget; monarchies have been deposed before, and doubtless will be again. The usual reason for their demise is conspicuous decadence and enormous, undeserved wealth, plus hard times for the general populace. Read your history folks; this country has a fine tradition of deposing or disciplining those who purport to rule. It just needs the right conditions. The decadent buffoon who is due to succeed may just be the catalyst. I was talking to a group of very elderly people this week; a very conservative group who had lived through (and in some cases fought in) the Second World War. They were chatting about this very subject, and expressing their admiration for the Queen and how she has behaved over the years. One of the group said 'Great woman, but she should be the last, the current lot are no use', and the entire group agreed. That's my point; I believe that the institution of monarchy will be seriously weakened by Charles's succession, and may not survive for long afterwards.
