Commonwealth in secret succession plans
BBC News, by James Landale

Original Article

Posted By:konocti95, 2/13/2018 10:18:45 AM

The issue is hugely sensitive because the role is not hereditary and will not pass automatically to the Prince of Wales on the Queen´s death. The Commonwealth has set up a "high level group" to look at the way the international organisation is governed. This group is meeting later, officially to review how the Commonwealth is run by its secretariat and governors. It said the issue of the succession of the head of the Commonwealth was not part of the group´s mandate, but described the day-long discussions as "open". However, senior sources added that the gathering in London would also consider what happens when the

The Queen gave up on Prince Charles the wimp a long, long time ago. He´s got a snowball´s chance in hell of making it to the throne after the scandals he brought upon the crown.

Like the adulterous Prince Edward (Queen Victoria´s eldest son), Prince Charles will be King. He might not be King for long considering the long-lived Queen Elizabeth, but he will get his crown following her death. (God help them.) But I doubt very much the British subjects will accept Camilla as Queen Consort. It will be a PR nightmare for the Palace.

Charles will automatically be king. I think that during the waiting period for his coronation (where he will be anointed king) he will abdicate. William and Catherine are popular, Camilla is not.

I am not impressed with Charles. He´s a wimp and an idiot. He takes after his Uncle who abdicated. They would be much better off in the long run with Prince William whose wife has more class in her little finger than that horsey Camilla.

We’ve been watching The Crown on Netflix. If it is at all acurate, and it appears to be, Charles learned his behavior from his father who is and always has been a first class pr!ck.

I’m not crazy about William’s politics but at least he’s not as loony as his father.

It appears that Elizabeth is a pleasant anomaly in the House of Windsor, a sensible, sane, reasonable person who understands both the commoners and her position very well, all in a good balance.

Charles is an idiot on his best days, William may be OK, it isn´t too clear yet.

Royals, pretty much past their "use by date". After Elizabeth, perhaps just cancel the whole thing?

We got entirely past it in 1776, and have been just fine ever since.

This has been known for a long time, about how the Commonwealth can decide if they want to stick with it when the current Monarch passes. This is why she started giving Charles more responsibility to represent her, so that the Commonwealth can get to know him a little better before making their decision in the future.

But I am betting that some are still going to leave once Lillibet does, because the public opinion of Charles as a dim and ignorant fool has been around for a long time. With the trend of elderly monarchs abdicating in favor of their more youthful heirs, I would not be surprised either to see Parliament skip Charles and go right to William when the time comes and they give their opinion to the succession. Especially with his well known sympathies to Islam.

It was announced at the time Charles & Camilla got married that she would not be permitted to be granted the title of "Queen", and would be referred to as "Princess Consort". The same way that Phillip is referred to as Prince Consort.

The British public have still not forgiven him for his treatment of the ´People´s Princess´, Diana, Princess of Wales.

The point of the article is that, although Charles may become ´King of England´, he may never become ´Head of the Commonwealth´.

The Queen may overlook the plain fact that Charles is a lightweight simply because he is her son. But she will not overlook the fact that he disposed of Diana and chose Camille, whom the Brits overwhelmingly despise, including most especially the queen herself.
She may very well decide that the future of the monarchy is not worth the risk of handing it off to a pair quite capable of destroying it.

Prince Charles--- who by the way has a lot more sense than airhead Prince Harry--- should rightfully get the throne, but a better idea would be to abolish the monarchy after the Queen passes. None of her heirs has the sense of duty and responsibility that the Queen has or her parents had. These princelings want the celebrity/rock star lifestyle, let them pay for it out of their own purses.

Mom who let 4-year-old eat a PB&J

Posted By: konocti95- 4/12/2018 10:19:47     Post Reply
Here´s one for all the parents out there: Is it OK to let your child eat peanut butter at Target? A mother on a New York parenting blog wrote Monday that while shopping at the store, she gave her four-year-old daughter a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and "a woman stopped me to lecture me about peanut allergies." The child´s mother then asked other moms on UrbanBaby if it was now unacceptable to eat peanut butter in public. If your reaction is of course not, it´s a free country, you are definitely siding with the minority. The anti-peanut butter backlash was swift and brutal.

A French historian specializing in World War II history was sentenced to nearly a year in prison for stealing dog tags belonging to U.S. servicemen who perished in a plane crash during WWII, officials announced Tuesday. Antonin DeHays, whose research focused on the D-Day invasion at Normandy, took nearly 300 dog tags and other artifacts from a public research room at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland, the Daily Mail reported. DeHays reportedly carried out the thefts during his visits to the research room between 2012 and 2017 and used his researcher ID to gain access to the artifacts. Archivist of the

The sperm – carried to the station on Elon Musk’s SpaceX Falcon 9 – will be the subject of a number of experiments to see how space and low gravity affect male sex cells. Astronauts onboard the ISS will thaw the frozen sperm to see if sex in space would lead to successful reproduction. The scientific study is part of NASA’s Micro-11 mission, which contains samples of frozen human and bull sperm. Once the Falcon 9´s Dragon resupply capsule has completed the first stage of the journey and has docked, research will begin on the samples. NASA hopes to understand how micro-gravity affects the

A new survey has found that a third of young millennials in the U.S. aren’t convinced the Earth is actually round. The national poll reveals that 18 to 24-year-olds are the largest group in the country who refuse to accept the scientific facts of the world’s shape. YouGov, a British market research firm, polled 8,215 adults in the United States to find out if they ever believed in the “flat Earth” movement. Only 66 percent of young millennials answered that they “always believe the world is round.” Science teachers across the U.S. will be shaking their heads after learning that nine

If you thought we’d heard the last of noted National Anthem protester and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, think again. The budding social justice warrior still hasn’t given up on the idea that he can land a starting spot with a National Football League team simply by demanding that one is owed to him. He filed a “grievance” against the league last year claiming that the league and the various team owners were all “colluding” against him to keep him from playing. This month that process continues to grind on and the focus is on the Baltimore Ravens. They interviewed

"We are clearly dealing with what we expect to be a serial bomber at this point," Manley said.

A gun-owning Democrat´s solution to

The stereotype of Democrats is that they want to take away everyone´s guns. Under former President Barack Obama, gun sales skyrocketed, especially after any mass shooting that received nationwide coverage, over the fear that he and the Democrats in Congress would be successful in restricting everyone´s access to firearms. It didn´t help that Obama at times talked about confiscation a la Australia. But his administration generally just took half-measure actions that made it seem like they were doing something on the federal level, but, in reality, they did nothing to prevent mass shootings and really only infringed on people´s rights.

In the first broad demographic study of trends in gender-affirming surgeries in the United States, researchers found that the number of operations increased fourfold from 2000 to 2014. Some of the significant rise, according to a study published Wednesday in the journal JAMA Surgery, may be related to an increase in insurance coverage for the procedures. “Early on we recognized there’s been a lot of work on health disparities having to do with age, race and so on that get collected in health-care settings,” said Brandyn Lau, an assistant professor of surgery and health sciences informatics at the Johns Hopkins University

Michael Cohen is a fraud of a lawyer who works exclusively for President Trump, federal prosecutors charged Friday. “Cohen has told at least one witness that he has only [one] client — President Trump,” the lawyers wrote in court documents, challenging Cohen’s claims that records seized in raids on his home and office Monday should be protected by attorney-client privilege. And he’s barely doing any “legal work” for Trump, either, they claim. “[Reviews of the records] indicate that Cohen is in fact performing little to no legal work, and that zero ­e-mails were exchanged with President Trump,” according to the brief, filed in

Former Vice President Dick Cheney called President Donald Trump to thank him for pardoning his former chief of staff, Scooter Libby. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told Breitbart News that Cheney phoned the president after the announcement was made. Before former President George W.

Cheney was angered by Bush’s decision, telling the president that he had left a soldier on the battlefield in the wake of the partisan investigation of the leak of CIA operative Valarie Plame’s name publicly to the media.

Police are looking for three men who beat up a security guard in Tallahassee last week after they were told a pool party had to come to an end. When the guard — who police said was not authorized to be patrolling the area — asked the rowdy party attendees in bathing suits to leave, three men brutally pounced on him. All it took was one punch to take down the guard, video shows. One attacker jumped on him, while the other two continued to pound him on the ground. It was unclear what the unidentified security guard´s injuries were. The party was held on Sunday, April 1, 2018, at Aqua Palms Apartments, but it wasn't until Friday
