    Madge?
    Private Eye name for the Queen (from spoof letters written by Phil the Greek).

    And how do propose that the royals are binned. Put them all in a coach and crash it in a French tunnel?
    After Brexit, send back to Germany.

    It is.

    Madge I think referred to Madonna.

    In Private Eye it's Brenda but in private Phil calls the Queen Madge, familiar/shorthand for "Your Maj".

    Ridiculous comment.

    perhaps phase it out after the queen, send them out to get proper jobs. The concept of being better than someone because of who your parents is are is a disgrace. It only works because people play along with it.

    My position on the royals has mellowed over the years.

    In my late teens, early twenties I'd have had them taken out and shot.

    I don't think I'd accept an invitation to meet the Queen. She means nothing to me so an the opportunity to meet her would be wasted on me.

    But they mean an awful lot to an awful lot of people in this country, and because of that I'm prepared to turn a blind eye, to largely pretend they do not exist but let those who like them continue to fuss and obsess.

    I actually quite like the young royals. William and Harry seem to be decent young chaps, particularly Harry. He makes sensible contributions to many debates, has helped a number of charities and in his case I see something positive being given back for the astronomical cost that the royals inflict upon us.

    Apparently charles is not a fan of how big the 'royal' family is, and intends to pare back the number of people included in the umbrella affect of all the hullabaloo, limiting it to immediate family of the monarch and not much else, none of this queen's second cousin's nephew's son carry on.

    If nothing else the Royals are celebs, no?
    That alone will guarantee their survival in this trivia-obsessed country.

    Ach, outed.

    It's not so much about the money as raising my profile. I'm concerned to restore my reputation as the most oleaginous man on the tellybox, ever.
