Don't Rainbows, Beavers, Brownies, Cubs, Guides and Scouts all swear allegiance to the Queen anyway?
I promise that I will do my best, to do my duty to God and to the Queen, to help other people and to keep the Cub Scout law!!!!
The Scouts is a voluntary organisation and is free to have people swear allegiance to Chuck Norris if it wants to. The Woodcraft Folk exist as a lefty alternative for people who aren't into the "God and the Queen" stuff.
i swear allegiance to humanity and to this earth
everything else is drivel
The Queen has no relevance in today's world, she is merely a sign of the past, of our heritage. As good as she is at attracting tourists, the Queen is not someone I would swear allegiance to.
I think having a monarchy is a great attribute to a country - regardless of whether ot not it has a lot of real functions.
It gives the country a history and identity and shouldn't be dismissed becuase it 'does nothing' ...
