Another bad week for the Royal family as the State opening of Parliament, and Prince Charlesâs reading of the Queenâs speech, generated huge criticism â for both itâs pro-ruling class content, and the absurd antiquated ceremonial format & display of wealthâŠin the midst of a major economic crisis causing misery across the country.
With pervert Prince Andrewâs sex crimes now common knowledge; and Prince Harryâs âcake & eat itâ attitude the subject of derision â both are now banned from the Royal Balcony wave-fest because they no longer carry out formal âRoyal dutiesâ. Both remain very rich and privileged, neither have ever actually worked for a living. But as the old Queen edges ever closer to her royal grave, the very foundations of this hereditary con-trick are begining to crack & fall apart. Recent Royal visits to Caribbean nations have been met by protests, and some cancellations, over the Royalâs historic links to the slave trade, as more nations seek to end their ties to Britain. Even the BBC canât ignore the stink, in their latest article to touch on the topic they quote Arley Gill, Grenadaâs Ambassador to Caricom, the Caribbean community of 20 countries:
In addition to a formal apology for slavery from the British government, Mr Gill would like to see an apology from the Queen. âThe royal family played a critical part in sanctioning and participating in the slave trade and slavery. They must not be exempted from accepting their responsibility,â he said. He is not alone.
Members of the 17th century Royal family headed up the Royal African Company, which for decades held a monopoly on the rights of British merchants to profit from the transatlantic slave trade â until the likes of Bristolâs Society of Merchant Venturers also got in on the act. The profit generated from the slave trade made the Royalâs, and the merchants, extremely richer, and that wealth has stayed in their hands, and kept their class in power. As wealth inequality continues to expand across Britain, itâs no surprise the work-shy privileged Royals and their ilk are facing the wrath of many people as they continue to display their arrogance, absurd ceremonies, and anti-democratic hereditary positions. The Queen may or may not be dead by the time of the Jubilee in 3 weeks, but many are turning their backs on it anyway and looking to a Royal-free future.
In east Bristol alone, a 3 day multi-venue âFuck the Jubileeâ festival is planned (FB link), with bands, djâs and other fun and games. This is a counter to the planned Jubilee celebrations, which are being led by the usual arse-licking suspects â the corporations, church, and those in outdated ceremonial roles designed to foster loyalty & subservience. One wonders if Bristolâs lame-duck Labour Mayor Rees will participate, given his claim he may be descended from a slave family? Given his ego & lust for power, we suspect heâll doff his cap and fit right in!
But itâs been lame Prince Charlesâs speech to open Parliament that has really unleashed a wave of revulsion, hatred and humour, thatâs got #AbolishTheMonarchy trending. Charles may have generated a bit of a tree-hugger image, but never forget that âhe is the head (or the very willing figurehead) of a vast empire of nefarious financial interests hiding hypocritically behind a facade of charitable philanthropy.â (see this expose). Hereâs just a few examples of the online comments weâve seen:

The âImperial State Crownâ got it in the neck too:

The âfamily on benefitsâ theme got a good reworking too:
Scottish sentiment is clear too, unsurprising given how long theyâve been colonised by the Royals & English ruling class:

Even the carefully groomed and spun image of the future âKingâ William is being ripped apart:

They may choose resignation over abolition and the guillotine, but bring on the republic and a social revolution!
