No it's not their fault.
But the money that they cost us could be spend on much better things.

They bring in far more than they get in terms of tourism- and they don't cost that much.

The palaces bring in tourism, not them.
I'm not suggesting we destroy any of OUR palaces/towers/royal castles etc.
Look at the French - they got rid of their royalty and their tourism didn't suffer.

Republic is the way to go

You guys are missing a key point here.  If Drudge knew, if the Aussie Magazine knew, it was only a matter of time before "the bad guys" knew.  Drudge blowing it worldwide may have saved lives.

(hell, it may have all been planned out this way so he wouldn't have to serve out his tour)


(not that I'm in any way questioning his balls.  I could go work in Iraq or elsewhere at the drop of a hat and triple my wage, but I like my head on my shoulders and my young children would miss their father and I'd miss them.  No one made him go, he could have avoided it he wanted to.  The guys got balls.  You'd have to wear a Nazi uniform right?

The palaces bring in tourism because of them.

OK, a Republic. Who should be President then?

Versailles in france gets loads of tourists, yet no royal family.
People would still want to see Buckingham Palace whether we have a queen or not, besides she doesn't sepend much time there.
