I'll Take "Mind Your Own Business" for 200, Alex

"A world organization that has recommended that Britain hold a referendum on keeping its monarchy."

"What is the United Nations?"

"Correct, select again."

I notice that Cuba and Saudi Arabia are on the council that made this recommendation. No word yet on whether or not those countries will be directed to hold a similar referendum.

The queen has no power. Why bother?

Because to busybodies there's no such thing as "Why bother?"

By the way Darren, I didn't miss the inclusion of Cuba in the list of nations as candidates for a similar referendum.

Why are we still paying the lion's share of support for the UN. It is obvious that its mission is to dissemble organized and stable nations and make them unstable so that the UN can control them. It's laughable that Cuba, with its aging Communist dictator for life and Saudi, with its maniacal ruling family would actually insist on the very stable figurehead of the UK stepping down.

We should turn over the costs of hosting the UN to the EU.

They can afford it and they got "U" in common.
