    Why?

    At least politicians are there because someone decided they could do a better job than anyone else, if they do a bad job they will, in theory, lose it.

    Frankly, the monarchy is just a relic of a less enlightened period of our history.

    This will be the last time many of the veterans travel to Normandy and you do not want our head of state to be there?
    If our head of state was someone who held that position on merit I would want them to be the first name on the list. As it is, I find it hard to get upset over the old women being treated like an average person, to me that is all she is.

    Well now, I don't have any axe to grind about her Majety and as head of State she really should have been invited to Normandy - if only for the sake of the Veterans.

    But it is always at times like these - that I remember the story of a group of plane passangers waiting in the departure lounge, about to board the plane.

    An announcement is made over the airport speakers - that the piolet of the plane has just had a heart attack and died - but don't worry his son will be taking his place on the flight.


    Would you board that plane?

    At this stage, I'd rather abolish Parliament and have the Queen run this country seeing she'd do a damn better job and her loyalty and the fact she'd only work for UK's interest would never be in question

    As i said, you are probably in the minority

    If our head of state was someone who held that position on merit I would want them to be the first name on the list.


    The Queen is the ONLY person with worth and merit in this country that could represent UK.

    As shocking as it may be for you to understand, US troops weren't the only ones there. There was more than one country present. 10 countries taking part to be exact.
    Have you never figured out that Britain wasn't running the war, the United States was?

    Religion shouldn't influence a MP on his position, his/her constituents and voters should hold that influence.

    If we start up the road of Politicans spouting their religious beliefs every time they try and enter office we will end up like US. I don't want our politics to emulate them. Can you imagine simple things like Stem cells suddenly being such a ridiculous controversial battle?
    You don't mean "stem cells", you mean "embryonic stem cells". And the debate is whether living humans should be cannibalized to supply parts and repairs for other humans. England isn't having that debate. How wonderful for you. You've already decided that babies are a commercial commodity.

    And since I'm an atheist I arguing from a rational perspective.

    I just bet you are and i mean stem cells generally.

    If i don't care for feotuses, why would i care about some stem cells?
    It is not a baby, spare me the emotional words. It would work if i had a heart to care

    As long as it goes to finding cures, go ahead. I'd even offer mine if i could.

    Nobody cares if you care or not.

    The issue is cannibalism.

    I'm seeing that they didn't teach you reading comprehension.
