Prince Charles in royal attire...

Now if someone British had posted this picture on a US forum and labelled it (a well-known American of your choice who some people like and some people don't), what would you have thought? You probably would have thought the guy was a loser, right?

I didn't mean it to be directed at Prince Charles, it was just something to get you to look at it. I have neither a positive or negative opinion of the royal family.
I don't even understand why you have a royal family, other than the fact that you have had one as a tradition.
Personally I don't think we would tolerate it here in the U.S. We barely tolerate goverment at all over here, let alone anyone born into royalty.

And you want to hurt my eyes because???

That's a vast sweeping generalisation that no-one in the States tolerates royalty - I've seen loads of Americans who are apparently fascinated by our Royals. And tradition is basically the only reason we do have them - they have no real role in government left, and haven't had for many years.

I think you're over reacting. I was just me interjecting a bit of humor. To the point that I may have offended anyone by choosing Prince Charles as a person to get you to click on the picture I apologize.

That's why I'm trying to spice it up with a little variety. Some humor and some gunplay in the above post. Maybe it'll catch on.

The thing is that this community is meant to be about the UK. This post is just really, really pointless, and your presence here is becoming increasingly irritating. Tempted to leave here myself, actually, I'm getting nothing out of it.

I actually have no problem with a bit of intelligent political debate, I just don't like people 'getting my attention' with really really crude humour and relentless attempts to convert me to the 'guns are good' idea.

I agree with you. This has nothing to do with the uk and seems to be another attempt by you to try and make out your country is superior to ours, whether you meant it that way or not :( Perhaps you should think a little more about the things you choose to post here. There are plenty of other communities on lj where this post would be more apropriate to display.

Well post something, this community is dying.
