    the duke and duchess of Cambridge are off visiting Poland Germany and France in an attempt to make them not hate us too much.
    frankly they are probably going to be more successful at that than may and her collection freaks:(.


    the problem with getting rid of the royal family is are elected leaders make it so fucking hard:mad: even the guardian found when it got hold of prince Charles letters to Blair they made perfect sense:facepalm:

    The biggest and best justification for the abolition of the monarchy is that it would give me a stonking hard-on.

    Getting an errection is one thing. What happens to an errection, and your intentions relating thereto any such errection, are quite another.

    A380 How do I change this 'custom title' thing then?

    I'm not sure there are that many GPs whose mum or dad was a dustman, warehouse operator, cleaner or similar. But loads who had a parent who was also a doctor. But that's another thread...

    Perhaps we could arrange to guillotine them one at a time, if it makes ViolentPanda happy?

    To be fair, young whatshername's A level results were probably quite good for one of that lot.

    Aha, Eugenie praised for A-level results

    Prince William got A, B, C, which shouldn't have let him into St. Andrews, and old Charles was even worse. One B and one C probably wouldn't let most people into Trinity College, Cambridge.

    I wouldn't be surprised, though, if what Dr. Farr said was true.

    That academic is a twat for disclosing that an applicant was rejected from their first choice of course for lolz at a public meeting. Would he do that to another student?

    St Andrews is the definitive toff university though. I wouldn't be surprised if people with straight As got turned away for lack of (in)breeding.

    danny la rouge This is definitely the darkest timeline

    "Cambridge University now has fewer privately educated students than universities such as Bristol, Durham and St Andrews, entry figures reveal.

    Cambridge has only the ninth most privately educated intake, the Higher Education Statistics Agency figures show.

    Among mainstream universities, Oxford has the fewest state school pupils.

    The figures show the overall proportion of state school pupils entering UK universities has reached a record high."​

    Good God, look at the linguistic contortions they have to go through to make this seem like a good thing. It's only right at the bottom that we learn that only around 6.5% of the population is privately educated. Therefore privately educated people are still MASSIVELY overrepresented at Cambridge.

    When state educated students make up more than 90% of Cambridge's intake they can get back to us. And even then they'll still be short.

    Oh, and there's no need to justify the abolition of the monarchy. The onus is on monarchists to justify the monarchy's existence. Which, actually, they logically can't. So it falls.

    Depends on the type of republic you are talking : a Presidential system like the US, no way , its not as if the role of of PM is under powered as it is; a Presidential system like Ireland, yes please would make an extra check and balance that HMQ can only theoretically provide - but doesn't - would have overridden the 1972 European Communities Act when it came in for a start.

    The only thing we need to justify is why we haven't done it yet. Which is basically that it's a whole load of faff for something that, while ethically and morally a big win, would make very little difference to the actual running of the country and the injustices created by that. But we're just a Brexit-related recession and big-eared coronation away from it looking like it's a lot more worth the fuss than it does right now.

    Possibly an oath to the people instead of to the Crown.

    Not to worry, unless they say it thrice.
