And paying for all the Scots on the Dole.

Exactly! 
 

Leeching  off of the backs of hard working taxpayers. 
 

And that’s just the RF.

Do you honestly think the RF are a net drain on the national coffers then Andy?

Yes. Nothing but self serving parasites. 
 

The French had the right idea on how to deal with Royalty. 
 

If they genuinely bring in anything remotely like 2 billion then why pay them anything and fund their security? Seems like they can fund this themselves quite easily so let them. 
 

It baffles me there is still grown men defending such a disgusting organisation.

So, to continue the provocation, to see if it has legs, let's say all the crown's wealth reverts to the state, all ill-begotten jewels returned to the countries of origin, all privilege and patronage, opening and closing ceremonies stopped, what then?

 

I'd say it would end up being a cross between George Orwell's Animal Farm and the current Welsh Assembly or maybe even Holyrood. Corruption and incompetence would see all the pomp and glory wiped out into grey dispair for the ruthless few.

 

You say it could be different and better? How so? Paint a picture for us.

I don't dispute that the tram system works well, only that process of its construction was farcical, horribly delayed and could only have been more expensive if they had gold-plated the tracks.

You will get to enjoy Swedish public transport soon ;) yes the system in my neck of the woods is good . If yer get on bus or tram within the hour of getting off you dont pay for another ticket . THAT should be nationwide. Obvs not carrying this on bus thou ;) K

I think he means that if you make two bus or tram journeys within an hour of each other the second one's free of charge
