    Why not? It's become a Christmas tradition for many and I would say almost certainly more people do than don't like it.

    the queen can kiss my ass, to put it nicely - if it were up to me, we wouldn't have her
    what is she even good for? other than being a state-sponsored/funded snob? literally, that's her function - that's what makes her distinct - she is paid to be a career-snob. I'm not even left wing, I'm far from it, I just think it's stupid that my tax pounds are going towards this illogical aim...
    cos only left wing people can be apposed to the monarchy :rolleyes:

    Try telling that to those freedom loving american gun nuts

    Yes. This article from the Guardian says she does.

    So because a newspaper says so it means it's true...

    Lol.

    It certainly suggests it's true if nothing else. Maybe you can provide proof for The Queen not writing her Christmas Day message?

    Well, I don't like what you have to say since it's a typical troll / ignorant person line so you shouldn't be on the internet, or for that matter, allowed to talk at all! How do you like it now the shoe is on the other foot?

    you know what I mean though - right wing people are usually conservatives, while left wingers are "less" conservative (not much so, though, in my perspective) - it's a generalisation but usually it's true - the vast majority of people who I've met who were republicans were lefties

    I don't like something, therefore it should be banned.

    Strong logic there OP.
    the queen = the position of a public institution
    public institution = funded by taxation
    taxation = involves everybody
    everybody = should have a say in a democracy
    therefore, "banning" something that is compulsory/taxing isn't exactly aggressive

    that's clearly distinct from private actions, e.g. drugs, sex, liberty, etc;
    victimless acts = only affects the single person, and nobody else
    everybody = has no connection to the act
    therefore, they have no say, unlike for public/institutional practices

    Who said I watched it? And you seem to have great difficulty understanding the concept of just doing something else for those what, 10 minutes? There are literally hundreds of other channels you could watch or, you know what, you could turn off the TV and read a book or something. Nobody forces you to watch it, so if you don't want to watch it, don't watch it; just don't feel that because you don't want to watch it you have any sort of right to force the inability to watch it upon everybody else.

    I think the Queen is a wonderful monarch and I respect her greatly.

    I admit I didn't see her Christmas day message this year but only because I wanted to help my Nanna out with Christmas dinner as much as possible.

    Honestly, after the Queen finishes her reign I wish Prince Harry could take the throne but I am fully aware he won't.
