    Handing over the Throne

    Questions for the English members:

    I was reading today that the Queen may abdicate in a couple of years from now to give Charles a run as King. I was told earlier by someone that she has not done it before now because it is a major issue to abdicate in that all nations of the commonwealth are effected. Which seems like a good reason.

    At the same time if abdicating is a viable option for her at all why wait until Charles is in his 60s? Was he not ready before now?

    What is really happening here? And what are the issues.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Pretty sure Liz'll want to top Queen Vic's record before she gives it away.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Nice bloke Charlie Boy, but comes across to me as complete cretin and no sort of head of state - also blotted his copybook by failing to keep his marriage together, and difficult for the common man like me to comprehend how he could pass over the first Mrs Windsor in favour of that ....................... well shall we just say, to avoid a charge of treason, somewhat less attractive second edition

    For the same reason as Mick Hutchence dumped the fragrant Ms Christensen for Sir Bob's smack-addled sloppy seconds, one imagines: she bangs like a shed door in a gale.

    Haha Brumby.

    Ideally Charles shouldn't get the throne and it should be passed straight to William.

    Never in a million years would I have thought Brumby to admit this!!!!!!

    Terrible thought - so you reckon Camilla is a bit of a Wallis Simpson?

    Wonder what Will Carling's view is

    I think an argument can be made that it'd be ideal, though I don't have a particularly strong view either way.

    That said, I'd get rid of the monarchy altogether if it wasn't for money brought in through tourism etc and I suspect Wills would be slightly more of a draw than Charlie.
