    Our current position within the Brexit fallout negotiations is utterly fucking retarded. With our current governments piss and vinegar attitude towards the Norther Ireland issues (and that fucking utter cretin 'Lord' Frost) we are not only going to piss off the EU, but the US as well (two of our largest trading partners). Great fucking job Cons, great fucking job.

    We are already suffering significant parts and equipment shortages and supply issues in all areas of engineering industry (personally dealing with this, 15-16 week lead times on items we used to get overnight) and i'm hearing anecdotal agreement of the rather shit state of the UK supply chains from others in agriculture and construction. The only industries that seems to be unaffected at the moment are the housing industry (post supply) and the financial industry.
    Shitting up eve for .... well, longer than most of you scumbags.

    Considering that the supply issues are hitting rest of the world also I'm not that surprised that the Mons Special Country that has chosen to isolate and have a tantrum is getting the short end of the stick and feeling the issues the most. With no end in sight for the chip shortage and haulage issues it ain't getting better anytime soon.

    The Tories will continue as they are for as long as the financial industry is doing alright

    Which would be better: To have the Queen Mum abolish the monarchy with class, or watch it decay into further irrelevance on Charles' watch?

    I'm not sure what the actual "this truly affects the people negatively" reason for British-ceremonial-power-only monarchy hate is, outside of not giving up Andrew to the police.

    The queen dying will probably cause a fairly large shift in the public psyche.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Conservative institutions never abolish themselves. Watch Charles run (it into the ground).

    As food for thought for the commie abolitionists: what do you think a Conservative government will do to the (cough) crown jewels of the Crown Estate once they have unfettered access to them?

    Queen dying would just be spun to be caused by the evil EU, like the empty super markets and no consumer electronics for the celebration of senseless excess consuming that is coming up.

    I think it might be a bit of a cultural watershed. She's a relic of a very different Britain so it might act as a sort of changing of the guard. Lots of oldies will do lots of performative mourning while younger people watch on and maybe see it as an opportunity for change and maybe reflection on our current societal values.

    Exactly. Monarchy elected from cast of TOWIE by online poll and one voted off each week.

    Only good thing I envision resulting from the Queens death is the non-zero chance that it will inspire Jacob rees-mog to commit seppuku. I can see that turnip killing himself out of some bizarre sense of classical patriotism.

    His classical patriotism is purely performative. He'll join a group of other shysters and be flogging commemorative coins in the Daily Mail to make a quick buck.

    For the first to happen, the Queen Mum would have to be raised from the dead.

    I can't see President Attenborough standing for that.

    Although his successors, Co-Presidents McPartlin and Donnelly, might.

    the queen's security is very boring and professional, we should RETVRN by getting them involved in politics so they can kill monarchs for bribes or even funsies
