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.

When a killer stalked her Florida school Wednesday, Carly Novell hid in a closet to save her life. Just like her grandfather had done almost 70 years earlier to escape the homicidal rampage of Howard Unruh in Camden. "This is my grandpa," Novell, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, said in a tweet that included photos of Charles Cohen as a boy and an older man.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: ´Sexism´ and a

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Sunday "sexism" and a "macho atmosphere" helped doom Hillary Clinton´s 2016 presidential campaign. "I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by even the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no man would have been criticized," Ginsburg said during a discussion at Columbia University. The liberal-leaning associate justice, who is 84 years old, shared a stage with CNN reporter Poppy Harlow and took a long pause before continuing.

News of Jimmy Garoppolo´s reported five-year, $137.5 million contract — the richest in NFL history — is predictably reverberating across the internet.

In his five starts for the 49ers last season, he earned a base salary of $820,077. He´s 5-0 in those starts (7-0 overall for his career), and he threw six touchdowns for 1,542 yards.

Spread of breast cancer linked to compound

Breast cancer patients could be encouraged to cut asparagus and other foods from their diets in the future to reduce the risk of the disease spreading, scientists say. Researchers are investigating whether a change in diet could help patients with breast tumours after studies in mice showed that asparagine, a compound first identified in asparagus but present in many other foods, drives the spread of the disease to other organs. When scientists reduced asparagine in animals with breast cancer, they found that the number of secondary tumours in other tissues fell dramatically. The spread of malignant cells, often to the bones, lungs and brain, is the main cause of death among patients who are diagnosed with breast cancer.

The earliest Britons were black-skinned, with dark curly hair and possibly blue eyes, new analysis of a 10,000-year-old Somerset skeleton has revealed. Scientists at the Natural History Museum have used pioneering genetic sequencing and facial reconstruction techniques to prove that the first hunter-gatherers successfully to inhabit Britain were far darker in complexion than previously thought. The groundbreaking discovery was made in a “stroke of luck” after archeologists found scraps of DNA in the ear of the Mesolithic “Cheddar Man”, the oldest complete skeleton ever found in the UK and one of the museum’s

A California judge ruled Monday the state couldn’t force a cake shop owner to bake a cake for a gay couple’s wedding, ruling that doing so would constitute a violation of free speech. Superior Court Judge David Lampe denied the State of California’s request for a preliminary injunction that sought to force bakeshop owner Cathy Miller to design a wedding cake for a gay couple. “For this court to force such compliance would do violence to the essentials of Free Speech guaranteed under the First Amendment,” Lampe ruled, according to a press release sent to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Revelations that the FBI had been warned about Florida high school shooter Nikolaus Cruz fit an all-too-familiar pattern, in which apparent law enforcement errors have preceded mass murders. The FBI was warned about Cruz after he posted on YouTube saying he was going to become a “professional school shooter.” The agency said they couldn’t identify the user who made the threat, despite Cruz posting under his own name. Five months later, Cruz pulled the fire alarm at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and began shooting his former classmates with his AR-15. Other mass shooters and terrorists were similarly on the FBI’s radar
