Senate Reform

Recommended Posts

All that matters is what you feel in your heart and think in your mind.

Do you know the story of your people and would you kill and die so that they did not perish from this earth?

Who would tell their King to leave in the face of the forces of darkness?  Not me.

Not then.  I'm talking about the next one.  Or the one after that.

It'll happen eventually.  There's no mystique left.  Queen Meghan of Suits just doesn't command the same respect.

I like HRH Prince of Wales.  He gets a bad rap, he's actually a very interesting fellow and I like an interventionist monarch.

I loves me some HRH Commando and his lovely wife too.

It's not about mystique, it's about doing the job.  

Flew the Apache in battle,  married an American woman of the people, what's not to love?

She commands respect, HM loves her, so do the people, it's only Fleet Street which is attacking her.

Likes got nothing to do with it.  I've yet to see a royal I disliked. 

That said, the more like the rest of us they become, the less likely they are going to be allowed to live off our largesse.

Certainly Elizabeth will see out her reign, and I daresay Charles will too.  I would lay money that William will be the last one to do so.

I'll be dead by then and won't be able to claim my winnings, so no actual bets.

I'm not anti monarchist myself.  I just don't see a role for them in the future.

I mean, ca'mon, look at this kid, he's adorable.  The Once and future King, wot?

There's evil there.  It's in the eyes!  You can't hide that sort of thing!

I'd take that bet.  George will be King and successors too; George V The Peoples King, heir to the throne of.

Things don't actually change as much as you apparently surmise, the Firm is ever evolving with the times.

He's got the mojo, I'd kill and die for him already.

And this, folks, is why all attempts to reform the Senate in a structural sense are a fool's errand.

Canada is not a republic and it never will be.

The British Crown is the DNA. 

The only thing you can do is elect Prime Ministers who will choose better Senators and then let those Senators do their jobs.

I used to think that but do we not need a chamber of sober second thought?  

Clearly, but I also think we could hold more referendums.
