I would rather listen to the people on Gogglebox then the royals because they are ordinary people giving honest opinions on TV programmes whether we agree with them or not. I also find a few of them very amusing wheras the royals are not ordinary people who have never lived in the real world ( bit of national service being the exception but most of that is mapped out for them) and are a total irrelevance to our nation. We don’t need them, they are out dated, expensive to run and offer no value for money to the nation. The lands they aquired throughout history with brutality and force of arms belong to the nation not them, they should be returned to the people, the monarchy done away with and the money we waste on them put back into the treasury for projects serving the people. Visitors will still come and look at all the castles and towers and history surrounding them but we as a nation can move forward as a republic and better serve it’s people as a result. The monarchy should end with the death of the queen and then at last we can begin to emerge as a proper modern-day country striving to achieve more and not held back by establishment and history. Viva la revolution.
