I used to look forward to Charles III. Now I’m scared

When republicans meet, we console ourselves with the thought that our apparently doomed cause will revive. The hereditary principle guarantees that eventually a dangerous fool will accede to a position he could never have attained by merit, we chortle. With Charles III, we have just the fool we need.

I don’t laugh any more. Britain faces massive difficulties. It can do without an unnecessary crisis brought by a superstitious and vindictive princeling who is too vain to accept the limits of constitutional monarchy.

    Except for the monarchy bit, that could apply to the U.S.

    Queen Elizabeth II.
    LONG MAY SHE REIGN!

    • I have to hope they’re working on a very life-like android that can take over from her if she doesn’t outlive her moonbat son.

        The wild card is to miss a generation and go on to Prince William …

        • His wife seems likable and probably not crazy. That’s mostly what you want from these people.

          a lifetime waiting for some one to die
          Charles can stick his global warming tripe.

          • It’s a very weird position to be in. I envy him the money and the automatic intro to pretty much anyone he feels like meeting, but nothing else.

            (I guess it might be kind of neat to be descended from all those interesting posh dead people, but the thrill would wear off I imagine.)

            yes never to want for anything, but then you would not know any different.. perhaps one can be too famous

        He will likely inherit from both his parents a tendency to live to a great age.

      May she pass the crown to her great grandson

    I have my doubts about the survival of Britain as it is, throw the fruit loop Charles in and it will be too much IMO.

  • Ron MacDonald

    It is time we cut our ties to the British crown.

    Republic now.

    Never liked him. I hope she designates William as her heir. Chuck is an embarrassment.

    Considering the Commons cut off Charles I’s head; invited Charles II back; made William king in 1688; made George I king in 1720 (or ’15?); okayed Victoria when William IV died; and tossed Edward VIII, I don’t think there will be any problem in them making the popular William king and skipping Charles.
