Include me out of the three cheers if that's OK.

Ah yes, the lovely Heb Princess......what a joy it is for the ragged-arsed natives and the general hoi-polloi of Stromness, when the post prandial dee-jayed chaps and chapesses disgorge onto the street to stroll along the flagstones, casting benign glances upon ouir quaint stonebuilt hovels and piers as they go. I don't suppose we'll notice any difference if 'twere Lizzie2 of Englandshire and her many hingers-oan. Cannie wait.............

Picnic under the windmills? How is she going to keep her hat on? What "at majesty's expense", Arnish? Probably taxpayers like you footing the bill. I bet the Heb. is cosy: again, the taxpayer's dime, I would suspect. As to Charlie boy [his Mother, with the interests of State at heart, plans to live for a long time and not step down - and I can't blame her!!] and drinking under age: he never had much sense -or intellligence- and at least one of his boys seems to be taking after him. I must take exception to Flying Cat nasty comments on Stromness though: my wife and I love Stromness and can't see what's Flying Cat's --uh! - beef. Hip, hip for the Boston Tea Party (half kidding).

Arnish, there was never a Queen Elizabeth 1st of Scots so how can she be Lizzie II? The sooner there is a Republic of Scotland the better. I don't appreciate my taxes being wasted keeping old ladies, their hangers on and pointless offspring in a manner I will never experience in a million years.

Elizabeth 1 was the grand-daughter of a Welshman. Her line died out with her and England aquired a Scots king, and his son got a bit involved with a civil war in England (not sure whether Scotland was affected much). But then, if we'd been happy with our last English king we wouldn't have had Henry Tudor. Regardless of the nationality of the current monarch, she is a lot cheaper than the crew in Westminster, or Holyrood, and probably as effective. PS Am I the only one to admit to under-age drinking?

Answer to Sunny, have you thought it through, a Scottish Republic would be a bad thing for everyone, especially you Scots. Where would you get your financial support from? I don't appreciate my taxes paying for things you enjoy for free but we have go without or pay extra for.
