Thanks to the British vegans

Postby beforewisdom » Sat Apr 30, 2011 10:09 pm

for keeping this forum a mostly "Royal Wedding Free" zone.

I was traumatized as a child by the Prince Charles and Lady Di coverage.

Good to know there are some English people living in the 21st century in this regard :)

Yeh I noticed that too - I was teaching bodypump at the time it was happening and had a good sized class so certainly not everyone was glued to their set!

I saw a glimpse, Kate looked like a scary girl from a horror movie with the white veil over her head!

Most British people outside London either really dislike the Royal Family or just think they are a bit of a joke. Those that like them tend to really, really like them.

I don't know anybody who likes them, though I did see a few drunks wandering around yesterday with flags draped over their shoulders, and a few houses with bunting in the windows.

.

What an interesting comment. What is about being in London ( I just watched 28 weeks later, felt like I was there :) )? Proximity and a fetish for celebrities?

I heard that the UK is about to undergo extreme budget cuts, but that the royal family used some tax payer money for the wedding, which I thought was outrageous. A comedy show we have here mocked this by interviewing actors posing as royal wedding fans confronted by that knowledge via the interviewer and subsequently ignoring those points.

In the U.S. our royalty is the super rich.

There are arguments about austerity measures here that include cutting old off from health care and depriving poor children of aide instead of undoing Bush era tax cuts on the most wealthy people.

Paying for a wedding seems cheaper.

I loved this tweet related to the wedding, not sure how accurate the numbers are.
"1 million" people lining the streets = proof Britain loves royals. 2 million marching against Iraq war = usual lefty rabble, please ignore.

Haha I got the f*** out of London before it happened, and spent the last 7 days blissfully ignorant of anything to do it ;)

Yes, I didnt watch the wedding, but my mum told me to check out pippa, who does indeed have a lovely bottom. Makes me glad to be moving to London. Not sure if that makes me a Royalist?
