THE FUNCTION OF THE MONARCH

Not really local but I'm waxing philosophical this afternoon.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE MONARCHY?

Now I am a monarchist, partially because I was brought up to be one but having considered the alternatives I still think it is the preferred method of having a Head of State. It is also a link with tradition and makes millions in tourist money.

Of course that does not include any of the hangers on who are not in a direct line to the throne. They should get a job, as befitting their talents, so not much cost there then.

BUT,
Consider the alternatives.

Tony Blair as President, or Gordon Brown or Cameron or any other politician on the make.

Our Queen is above politics, basically she rubber stamps laws made by the incompetents in Parliament, as is her function as a constitutional monarch.

BUT SHE IS OUR SOVEREIGN.

She embodies the people of our country and its sovereignty or independence.

SO SHE SHOULD PROTECT US and refuse to sign any laws which bring us closer to being dominated by the EU which diminish our independence or sovereignty.

It could be argued that as a constitutional monarch she has no power--but she has.
If she did not sign these laws would not pass.
Would she sign a law abolishing the monarchy? I doubt it.

She would do more for the monarchy if she refused to sign any law which brought closer union with the EU, and publicised the reasons why.
She would win the gratitude of the majority of the British people and assert her true role in protecting our rights.

That's my opinion. What do you think?

Tiocfaidh Ar La,

said RED - Also known to readers of the WEP and this Blog as SOCIALIST1

This is his the true Colours and his ideals.



The slogan used by Sinn Féin representatives appeared on graffiti and political murals and been shouted by IRA defendants being convicted in British and Irish courts and their supporters in the public gallery.

Patrick Magee said it after being sentenced in 1986 for the 1984 Brighton hotel bombing.



Says it all ! RED TRASH !

I await the usual reply of remedial abuse and insults.

Thank God for the British National Party.......

Thanks for the info British Lady.
I didn't know what he was on about.
He could have been writing in Arabic or Chinese for all I knew.

As a true English man I only use English, the language of the world and distrust those who do not.

I still have no idea of what it means but knowing the crap the writer usually puts on I'm not missing much so I won't lose any sleep over it.

Whats the true reason behind all the hate and slander aimed at the BNP? Is it ignorance or fear or just wanting the BNP out of the way as they have 'rocked the boat' I admire you all for keeping your calm whilst ubder so many different attacks.Had a BNP member thrown those eggs i am sure they would have been locked up and on every news.If its eggs or something else its still a missile,and against the law.I have never really been 'into' politics until now.The thing that got me the most was the BNP comments on immigration.Not coloured people but our government opening the flood gates.We are almost drowning.Still they do nothing.We need a party with back bone that will look after its own like the Australian Prime Minister said in his speech.

no pasaran!!!

R(ichardh)e(a)d:

Tiocfaidh Ar La = Our day will come

No pasaran = They shall not pass.

Well, red, I suppose you have to keep your morale up somehow when you find yourselves subject to comprehensive defeat after comprehensive defeat. The (P)IRA's day never came (Adams and McGuinness sold out so they could get onto the gravy train), and yours is fading further into the distance with each passing election. Perhaps we in the BNP should adopt it, as our day comes ever closer with each passing election?

And as for 'no pasaran' - well, they DID pass didn't they, and they then took took Madrid lock stock and barrel. Then they proceeded to pass again and again and take the rest of Spain too. George Orwell's views of the Spanish civil war about sums you leftards up. And strangely enough, Noam Chomsky's views on that war are no different from Orwell's i.e. disgust for the Leftards. Yes Red - I may be BNP but I have read pretty much everything Chomsky has ever written. Including "Transformational Grammar", as it happens.

It's not even as if you leftards have any coherent defensive lines for us to not pass.

Mr(R)Ed, I am very, very disappointed with you! Coming out with these two comments on this particular post just shows how young,uneducated and lonely you must be?

I actually feel a little sorry for you my dear friend? Maybe, if you cut out the drink and drugs somewhat you'd be a far wiser and a far more considerate individual to others by losing your anger to those who you feel may differ from your own drug/alcohol induced indoctrinated ideological bull you spew?

I still say you'll come round to our way of thinking one day!

See you soon M(R)Ed!!

justjoannah,

I so agree, with your comment about our country and the lack of Leadership.

None of the main Partys
have the " bottle " to admit this mass MutliCulturism experiment has been a very bad thing for our Country. How can they when they all promoted it so strongly ?

The BNP have also " Rocked the boat "
over the illigal Wars this Government led us into, aided by the LIBs and Torys.

Only Nick Griffin has a sensible and reasoned answer to geting our Troops home, and getting the liers who led us into these wars tried as war criminals at the Hague.

Another reason they want the BNP silenced.

ENGLISHMAN said...

Unfortunately she has signed a treaty that abolishes her position,and the soverignty of the English people.I too once supported the monarchy and for most of the reasons that you sighted,but how long can we go on inventing excuses for this traitor,when she has had SIX previous opportunities to champion the rights of the English people?Her husband wishes that he will be re-incarnated as a deadly microbe to wipe most of us out,her son can not contain his glee at delivering us ,neatly hog-tied into subservience to the bloody tyrants of islam,meanwhile mrs saxe-coburg-gotha,has bought a neat little mansion in denver,within panic distance of the underground de-contamination center,is an enthusiastic member of the bilderburger elite,together with rothschilde controls 80% of the worlds uranium,and has absolutely no intention of honouring her coronation oaths on the supremacy of the church of England,could any-one but the village idiot still believe that she has our best interests at heart?

ENGLISHMAN, The last monarch to challenge the government of the day, was Charles the 1st, and he just lost his head over it.
I do agree with lankypat, that she should try and block some of the laws from the E.U. that take us further in to it.? But what would be the consequences of that.? Would it mean a PRESIDENT Blair, or even PRESIDENT Medelsome.?
God forbid,? I'll stick with the monarchy for now. I am a royalist though, and always will be.
