She’s passed away now.

Can you link to when the bbc said it would never happen? You may be surprised to hear that the BBC don’t have any say over ceremonial protocol.“Prince Andrew was allowed to wear his uniform for the occasion, despite being stripped of his military titles”
Yes. We could’ve told the BBC that would happen a year ago. When they were telling the license fee payer it would “never” happen.
Putting this all into perspective.A recent letter, published in The Guardian. Shares something of the current mood in the UK.
“I grew up in a Middle Eastern police state where I learned from a young age to be guarded in what I say and fearful of the consequences of speaking out. Having now made my home in the UK, in no small part to escape the stifling of human freedom in my country of birth, I confess that the sight and reports of arrests and police harassment of individuals expressing republican beliefs have been profoundly unsettling. I’ve warned my children to tread carefully and not express any views critical of the monarchy, given the belligerent intolerance demonstrated towards those calling for its abolition.”
You still posting from The Guardian? Odd for a Morrissey fan.Some rays of light from Clive Lewis MP, and a worthy quick read for anyone who wants some insight into the reasons why The Queen is Dead still chimes for many in the UK.

I honestly don't remember if he was involved in any of the charities, but he wore a t-shirt with a wide neckline displaying a nicely shaped male chest.Was it the guy who was talking about the charity work he did during lockdowns?
You are right camera and phone use isn’t allowed inside and it is strict.
In that post did I say they were?Spike of plays doesn’t mean those plays are from anti monarchists.
As I said in my post you’re replying to ‘I guess those listeners have their reasons.’Could be for many reasons.

Exactly but there has been a suggestion on here that it signifies anti monarchist feeling and there is no way of knowing that at all.In that post did I say they were?
As I said in my post you’re replying to ‘I guess those listeners have their reasons.’
Or it could mean exactly that. Sorry, but the truth is, we don’t know who the listeners are.

As you said no one knows so could be anything.Yes. Perhaps there are those that may have not heard those songs and were curious or haven’t in a while and so they listened to them. Or there were those that hate the monarchy and/or what the Queen stood for to them and wanted to hear those songs again and what those songs meant to them.
I believe some vegans would say yes.Not really.
She says she doesn’t want killers on the throne. So I think it is relevant.
Do you think the monarchy should not eat meat? How about the prime minister and MPs?
But if they no longer ‘sin’ = eat meat, then I think they are entitled to say what spent has said. And I think anyone should assume if they say things like spent has said, then they probably don’t hunt or eat animals.It is a simple “let he who is without sin cast the first stone” situation.
You expect world leaders to have to be vegan?
I believe some vegans might say yes.Clive Lewis isn’t vegan so should we stop him for being an MP?
I just wanted to show how the Russian TV pigs manipulate everything. Original frames show the wife and daughter of the governor of the French colony, and later the president of France, Palua Doumer. In the video, women are throwing money to the people of Vietnam. Veyre recorded this passage in 1899 - 27 years before the queen was born.Looks like Hyde, c.1982. It really does. And then Thatcher kicked in.
