He had actually been one of the few holding the govt to account over the pandemic .... just a ratings thing I’m sure .... happy to see him walk ... 

His work holding the tories to account over the pandemic was superb, shame his other stuff was so ****!

Pretty ridiculous that you can get fined £1,000 for not filling in the census...

How can they fine you, if you don't fill out the census then surely you don't exist, and if you don't exist then... you get my drift (I've been drinking)

It's taken a mixed race person to show my basic problem with the whole concept of a monarchical system. The Royal Family are basically slaves, incredibly privileged slaves no doubt but if you have a child you can tell them they can do or be anything but they can't they are trapped in that family. We pay for them we feel we own them. That has no place in today's society. They are people in handcuffs and the fact that those handcuffs are gold and diamond encrusted doesn't help them any. It's an institution that needs to be removed completely. 

Nah - they can walk away at any point. The issue is they would leave with nothing, and have to find jobs in order to pay rent and all this stuff that is so totally alien to them. If anything they are the slaves that stayed on after the abolition of slavery as paid workers. They'd never known anything else so carried on as they were more comfortable where they were.

"They aren't allowed to vote, talk about politics" Ha! you do know it's "Her Majesty's Government"?

Yeah the Queen isn't allowed to talk about politics except for in her weekly meetings with the Prime Minister.

So Harry and Meghan could move in down the street from you and nobody would bother them at all. There would be no media or press attention. People would treat them absolutely normally and not like they are celebrities??

There'd be some fuss for a few months and then when it became apparent they were just going about their lives as normal it'd disappear. 

Obviously if they kept doing TV interviews and courting the media it wouldn't. But plenty of people leave the public eye on a regular basis and it's generally accepted by the press and public because they're leaving it to do something of no interest anyway.

You have way more faith in the British media than I do. They'd be going through their bins for years. Just look at some of the grief that Lisa Marie Presley got after her Dad died and he wasn't even a real king. They are an outdated institution and I think they should never have existed let alone be allowed to continue this long but unless laws were brought into prevent media going after them it would still happen. I wouldn't take their lifestyle for all the money in the world.

I'd like to be one of the royals that the press doesn't know or care about.
