    Default 89% Of Americans Like The Queen

    How about youse guys?

    I never thought that The Queen was in a popularity poll - but CNN just released the results that 89% of The US approve of The Queen.

    Alas, only 53% approve of the Prince.

    Always been a Queen fan, as for Prince I'm not fussed. He does write some great songs.

    Long live the Queen.
    She is the glue which holds the British Commonwealth together. Great Britain is our mother country, if you don't like this fact pack your bags and go back to your lovely countries like Hungary and Somalia.

    There's nothing much 'Common" on the Commonwealth anymore. Mostly despotic countries. Time for us to become a republic though the way this have been going here over the past 10 years it will be a banana republic..

    Only despotic countries I can think of is Rhodesia and Fiji and they are both suspended from the British Commonwealth.

    I'm with you Paul. Long live the Queen.

    I have followed her carreer from princess to Queen and all the associated problems along the way and I am still proud to say that she is our Queen. Sixty years is not too bad, eh? Long may she reign.

    BBC report for last financial year:


    Taxpayer paying less to keep Royal Family

    The Queen used funds from reserves to boost her Civil List

    Queen's taxpayer funding frozen
    How the Civil List is spent

    The cost to the taxpayer of the Royal Family fell to 62p per person in the UK last year - a drop of 7p, according to Buckingham Palace accounts.

    The total cost of keeping the monarchy decreased by 3.3m (7.9%) to 38.2m during the 2009-10 financial year.


    Estimated return from an investment of 38.2m was 140.0m

    Not too shabby.

    She's a fossilised figurehead of a bygone era, and serves no purpose other than supporting pomp, tradition, charities and tourism.

    There are better ways to waste billions of dollars than on a single family of inbred knobs.

    At the very least the old dragon should retire before she gets as potty as her partner.
