Well, like everyone on the interweb, they must also be out there in real life. It's just harder to summon up the courage to protest publicly, given the levels of hysteria around this kind of thing and the police state surveillance.
There were thousands of us protesting at the jubilee pageant last year. Private security guards wouldn't allow us to our spot despite it having been reserved months in advance.

Here come the republicans.
The people with an ounce of common sense when it comes to things like this.

Why on earth do you care? There are loads of babies being born everyday. Stop obsessing.

If I wanted to celebrate the birth of yet another human parasite, I'd nip to the nearest council estate.

This had better not interrupt my TV programming for the day.

Everyday when I wake up, I turn the news on soI can catch up with whats been happening. I have not been able to watch any actual news today because its just a man sat outside a private hospital speculating about the name of the future baby of a pair of over-privileged ****s. Very annoying.

Given how similar to China or Russia we are getting under the Coalition, I wouldn't be in any way surprised to hear all media switch to playing military music and showing pictures of the royal couple for the next 7 days.

It's allowed Dave to slip the 'no more porn unless you sign up for it' news under the radar. Surely you should be opting in for such a web block rather than signing up not to have it?

Hopefully it never gets to be a king/queen as the monarchy will have been sequestered by then to history; where it belongs.

I have a very nice one thanks.

There's nothing wrong with getting involved with what happens in this country.

Well they didn't mind doing it at the jubilee! I just meant that the proportion of republicans on this website is way bigger than it is in real life.

It's possible to be a monarchist and not care what gender the baby is.

How will TSR be covering/celebrating the Royal Baby arrival?

Perhaps we could have a 24/7/60/60 'reaction feed'?

Betting on the boy/girl thing? The name?

Discussing the hairstyles of the TV commentators?

Discussing the way in which Katie recovers and all the parenting mistakes she and Wills are about to make and the terrible post-maternity clothes she's wearin'?

Anything, no matter how extreme, hysterical, derivative, pumped up or commercialised will be deemed wholly appropriate.
bet you weren't expecting so many "I don't care" votes

I knew I would have to cater for them, but the huge scale of overwhelming apathy around here really shocks me sometimes.

It's a baby. There are lots of babies being born everyday. If obsessing over high profile people is what you call "getting involved" then no wonder this country is getting worse.

looks like i'll share a birthday with the baby, i'm not looking forward to the exaggerated celebrations the northern ireland unionists will have in store though, i'll not be celebrating, it's just cementing the idea that the baby is better than other babies.

It's not obsessing. It's called taking an interest in what happens in the country you live in, and supporting what goes on in it. The country is getting worse because people don't act like a community enough. We should support each other, and the events that happen within the country. And in any case these are my opinions and you have yours. I don't see why I should be forced to agree with your opinions.

Where did you get that from?
Opinion polls done over the years have shown that the % of people opposed to the monarchy lies around 20% and has peaked at around 40-45% in the past. Not bad seeing as republicans get accused of hating Britain and receive virtually no press coverage.
