y having a Head of State picked for no other reason than which womb they came from, we undermine every call for talent, entrepreneurship, and aspiration in this country. By denying any member of this nation the right to go for the top job, we create second-class citizens by default.

Kieran Turner-Dave

I propose that the priority of the next government budget should be to privatise the monarchy... The only difference is that the royal family will have to dip into their vast personal wealth in order to fund their luxurious lifestyles - and pay their fair share of tax.

The obvious and humane alternative to our current situation is the replace the Royal family with dogs. Their Royal Doginess could be lead from community group to building site and the British public would go wild; imagine a head of state that you could pat.

In what can only be described as adding insult to injury, the Ham & High reported a badly injured cyclist being taken to St Mary's Hospital, "where the Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth". The bizarrely inappropriate royal reference has since been removed from the article.

I think we were all amazed that The Queen was travelling on public transport the day after the horrific murder of the young soldier Lee Rigby on the streets of Woolwich. It showed courage and a determination on the part of the Queen to carry on and not be intimated by the threats posed by those who think nothing of wantonly taking innocent lives.
