    When this queen dies, we should wind it up. The royals. They're an embarrassment

    Keep one if you want, but make it only £25k a year and no palaces or jets or anything. 40 hour week entertaining the tourists. Should be able to unicycle and juggle. All royal lovers will still have someone to bow and curtsey to, so everyone wins.

    Open up all the palaces for tourists. Make the lands into common land which cannot be bought or sold ever in the future.

    Nobody could be interested in keeping this bunch of expensive toffs in millionaire finery and young girls could they?

    So who is the ideal figurehead to represent our nation, or what's left of it? President Boris? Corbin? Ant? Dec? Cilla is no longer available, so Olivia?

    In my view anybody who wants to be head of state should be ineligible, which is why I still favour somebody trapped at random by accident of birth and who has known for his or her entire life what they're in for.

    I think I've seen every country with an elected Head of State have someone serving in that role bring embarrassment down on their country at some point.

    Liz hasn't done that to us.

    If Andrew (or any other Royal) is guilty of something then fine, prosecute him. They should be held accountable by the law, too (including Phillip running his car into people). No need to throw out the baby with the bath water, though. Far better to have a head of state who has been groomed for the ceremonial role since birth than Donald Trump, then Donald Trump Jr., then Ivanka Trump...

    President David Attenborough. I rest my case.

    You really think you'd get him rather than something closer to President Jade Goody (sorry, not up on the latest UK reality TV "stars")?

    Mix love island with x factor and bear grylls.

    "Kings and Queens survival island".

    The island is the UK and everyone enters. You have to kill a caiman to get the crown.

    I’ll go one further and say change the national anthem. I don’t believe in god, I don’t want a queen and frankly, it could put an insomniac to sleep. Land of hope and glory or Jerusalem please.

    "God who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet......."

    "And was the holy Lamb of God on England's pleasant pastures seen?........the countenance devine..." The whole bloody song is about whether Jesus visited England and had a look round Bluewater.

    I think you've fallen at the first hurdle there, old Fruity.

    Maybe "Yellow" by Coldsick?

    You raise a valid point, but this is a gradual process. I’d get lynched by the daily fail brigade for being a terrorist sympathizer if I went about suggesting the Sex Pistols

    Do we really want a rugby song as our National Anthem?

    As Cley has pointed out, there's a compelling argument for Z-Cars, once Clive has written the words

    Obviously England is the greatest country ever, but Z-Cars represents the greatest team the world has ever seen. NO, NOT THAT ONE!!!

    We should unite the UK with a new anthem.

    God save our brexit plans
    Unite us in harmony
    Thistles are wonderful
    So are the sheep
    Shamrocks are beautiful
    Leeks, pasties and haggis too
    Hoist up the pork pie.

    Der der der der der.

    Send immigrants home again
    These white cliffs are our histor-history
    Respect the poppy or else
    We've got the best queen.

    Fits perfectly to Z cars.

    And all other countries should change their anthems to whistles with a few boos just to see the confusion on england fans faces.

    I've always thought The The's "Perfect" would be a cool anthem...

    Now - lets not judge until tomorrow - the BBC are well know for their hard line of holding famous open-secret paedophiles to account.

    The 16/17 YO 'woman' thing is a bit of a red herring - if it happened either in the Sates (or with a US citizen?) isn't that Statutory Rape which is not covered by any statue of limitations and is a federal offence with some quite stringent mandatory sentencing?

    Someone else coming forward:

    Also aren't a ream of stuff/depositions by/about, the currently missing, Ghislaine Maxwell (I hope they don't tarnish her good family name too much) being released soon?

    I wonder how they’ll bump him off and make it look like an accident.

    think he is too high profile now. More likely some of the victims or others will commit suicide that Maxwell woman for instance

    My bet is it’ll turn out he’s an imposter and the real Prince Andrew has been a POW in Argentina all these years.

    Wait, Simpson’s already did it. Damn.
