in a just society, they'd all feel the steely kiss of the guillotine on their napes, but voting for textbook failson prince andrew for exemplifying everything that's wrong with monarchy (idiocy, incompetence, friendship with jeffrey epstein etc)

I once saw Beatrice absolutely off her face on an East London rooftop after an early morning Ricardo Villalobos set so she's above Eugenie for me.

Meghan seems like a generally decent person. Certainly none of the ones who were born into it.

When you become a Canadian citizen, you're required to swear fealty to the Queen of England. I was thankfully underage when it happened, so I was exempted from this unspeakable act, which is all the more abominable when it occurs in Quebec.

Danton Lok (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 14 November 2018 17:51 (one year ago) link

who ordered louis xvi executed? it was before Robespierre

No, it wasn't. Robespierre was the one who said, "Louis must die so France can live" - or something like that - though he was jumping on Saint-Just's bandwagon to some extent. Also Robespierre made sure he let everyone know that he'd opposed the death penalty when everyone else was for it, he was in favour of it for Louis but not some poor wretch who'd stolen a chicken or whatever.

ROCK MUSIC (Tom D.), Wednesday, 14 November 2018 18:03 (one year ago) link

It was before the Committee of Public Safety and all that, but Robespierre was definitely instrumental in offing Louis Capet.

treesh, two-part question:

1) given the reforms previously enacted, and eg Dunstan in place as SA Premier, do you think the referendum non-binding postal survey of a year ago would have been required, had the dismissal not taken place?

2) do you think that first-hand accounts of community members committing suicide during the referendum survey campaign, unable to handle the rhetoric in media and from family members after lifetimes of ostracism, abuse, and legislated social downgrading, were false flags?

sans lep (sic), Saturday, 5 January 2019 01:00 (one year ago) link

i think i was misinformed about the british monarchy. i thought their position was largely ceremonial in 2018. i have no positive feelings toward them, i just don't like ppl cheering death on anyone. you'll find this is consistent across my ilx posts cf. this year's dead pool thread.

Tr系系ship, Saturday, 5 January 2019 01:31 (one year ago) link

i am never afraid to admit when i don't know something. i think we have a difference of opinion on what ilx is for. i learn things here and get involved in conversations on topics that i might not be an expert in. when i asked if the royals had done anything recently to warrant people wishing death on them that was actually just a question.

i doesn't bother me that you don't like me. please use the killfile feature if you are not interested in what i have to say. i would consider it a favor to me if you would do that.

I'm a dual British/Australian citizen, and fairly up on Aus politics, but I'm not sure I understand sic's questions or the relevance of the monarchy to the marriage equality postal survey.

That said, I find it bizarre that Australia's head of state is a foreign queen. But I think the royalty actually does more damage to the UK than it does to Australia.

Is she not simultaneously the Queen of Australia, Canada, the UK, etc., and thus never foreign in any of her dominions?

Never Turn Your Back On Virginia Woolf (Tom D.), Saturday, 5 January 2019 15:42 (one year ago) link

I'm not sure that it was meant in a legal sense. I think what people mean in describing her as a foreign monarch is that there's clearly some important sense in which she's a British in a way that she isn't a Canadian or Australian.

jmm, Saturday, 5 January 2019 15:58 (one year ago) link

Yeah, probably the fact that she was born there and resides there. I do enjoy imagining Lizzy simultaneously hovering over all these countries, presiding wisely, defending the faith.
