    Queen issues warning over paparazzi photos

    Link
    BBC News - Queen issues warning over paparazzi photos

    She says that she and her family are entitled to have privacy in their private life.

    When there is a monarch who is subsidized by the Tax Payers then that monarch has to expect that they will not be entitled to the same degree of privacy than if they were ordinary citizens.

    I think paparazzi are nothing more than legalized stalkers. I think the notion of a country being ruled by a inbreeder is ludicrous even if that inbreeder is nothing more than a Dave Thomas(founder of Wendy's who sold the Wendy's burger chain but still acts as a massot or spokes person for Wendy's)That said even she is entitled to privacy. But then a again I have wonder what her opinion of video cameras monitoring what the public does. Seems to me that if she doesn't mind citizens(or are they subjects) being spied on then she has no room to bitch about privacy thus deserves the same treatment as everybody else.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Where did that money come from so they can invest in real estate?

    I honestly don't feel all that bad for her. What else is she around for these days other than to be the center focus of attention for her nation- she surely isn't a head of state. No different than hollywood celebrities in america, their job is to be seen and admired inordinately by hordes of followers with nothing else to do.

    What's really ironic...

    I remember walking out of the building where the crown jewels were on display--star of africa diamond, golden bathtub, etc-- and right next to the door there was a donation box...

    Now see I'm confused. When i say the topic I would have sworn it was going to be about Obama's school safety Drug addict, sorry drug Czar, but it's a female Queen in question. I see, well then in that case. http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3FnpaWQJO0

    What does Dave Thomas have to do with paparazzi? He died a few years back anyways.

    Learn about British politics and the role of the Queen please.
    She does 'rule' us in any sense of the word. She is merely a head of State.

    The Queen is entitled to her own privacy, when she is performing state occassions for the UK's benefits then the media can go on her but any other time outside of her duties is her time to spend as she pleases.

    What was her stand on privacy when the british government decided to set up cameras to spy on it's citizens(or subjects)?

    So you Brits are ruled by a inbred hillbilly.
