It's one of those things where I agree in principle that the system is wrong and unfair
but I wouldn't be rushing to change it, especially if the Royals use their exalted status for good e.g humanitarian work, raising awareness of mental health issues and so on as the current lot seem to do.
But I begrudge one penny in tax going to them.
I also find it massively offensive that the national anthem is lauding someone as better than the common man, or that you have to swear allegiance to some old woman so that you can become a Member of Parliament.
Three pints of damn and a chaser of hellblast!
