Commonwealth - what is it all about ??
« on: April 20, 2018, 08:31:10 AM »

So anyone working in Central London this week would have been scuppered by the cavalcades, the entourages , the  extensive road closures for the dignitaries, the gazillion gun salute that went on for ages yesterday, the fuss and furor of our Commonwealth Leaders all coming together for a weekday brunch  Shocked:

But for what ??

What value does the Commonwealth have  today except to send the Royals off to foreign shores when they need a holiday ???

Don't get it  noooo:
Skubber

Quite

Once upon a time when air travel was riskier it provided a potential way to save us from Charlie.  Now we have the idiocy of Our Liz publicly pleading a barely disguised "please give my dimwitted son something to do to get him off my and Philip's hands"





Well, whatever nevermind

You might as well ask what's the use of friends.

And I doubt that Charles is dimwitted, maybe misguided at times. Yesterdays speech was to ensure smooth transition when Liz pegs it not to get Charles out the way.

Nothing I imagine. I bet a different head of the Commonwealth would cost us as they would require a separate state apparatus than the king would have already.
