Why would you need armed police if your marvelous no guns for citizens system is working? Our normal police over here don`t even get full auto weapons they have to use semi auto. That rather do as I say not as I do of the royals who`d have thought.......

There are armed police for other obvious targets too, like a gathering of politicians. So do you think we should get rid of all politicians?

You`re raving and clutching at things that aren`t even sturdy enough to be considered straws.

F**k the queen you`re a joke. For a people that are so against guns you sure didn`t have a problem letting the police strap up with sub machine guns for the royal wedding.....


Seem like someone dosen`t trust the commoners. How that for leading by example?

Just as an aside, QueenZira - the queen has served in the army and therefore is trained in the use of weapons. She served as a driver/mechanic, but she went through standard training.

So your picture is even better for having some basis in reality.

Lol @ Swoop. They look pretty straight and ALL THERE to me. I live in the Midwest. Every other person in Missouri has at least a couple of them missing. Generally, a huge amount of people in the US can`t afford or choose not to spend on dental health so overall I`d say teeth look better in the UK. But then, my knowledge base wasn`t appropriated from bad TV like Family Guy.

@Angilion "If you went to the bad parts of UK cities and gave guns to everyone+dog, we`d probably soon be up to their murder rate per capita."

Maybe so, but we haven`t so it`s not as bad.

@QueenZira - First the teeth now using a Canadian as a model of how unattractive UK men are? :/ I am disappoint.

@YugureKage - Aberystwyth is a lovely part of Wales. Natch I`d recommend Scotland though. ;)

Actually British people have some of the strongest and healthiest teeth in the world. However they tend to be prone to like buck-teeth or over/under bites. But aren`t we all? That being said, the Polish actually have the worst teeth, very weak enamel genetically. I think that was from a Cracked article though, so take it for what you will. That being said, I still want to live in the UK some day :D Aberystwyth in particular. My great grandmother was from Aberaeron, my great uncle went to Aberystwyth University, and I have family buried in Carmarthen. I feel like I have more of a connection to Wales than to my own country. I`ve romanticized it a bit, of course. I know both the US and the UK have issues, but I will take my chances in the UK.

You`re not much better than turdburglar the loon.

The USA is no more a bag of poo than the UK. It`s a much bigger bag, so there`s space for more of everything. It has many more guns, so more people get killed. It`s not fundamentally worse, though. If you went to the bad parts of UK cities and gave guns to everyone+dog, we`d probably soon be up to their murder rate per capita.

paddy215, I am idly curious. Are you ignorant and stupid enough to think your post made any sense? It`s either that or you`re trying to wind me up. You`re not important enough to me to be able to do that. A random stranger in the street. A callcentre worker. A stray cat yowling. They might wind me up. But not you.

Jeez bremir, can`t take a little gentle ribbing now and again? (Well, I was ribbing, the other fellow was probably trolling). But I can understand your anger, particularly when the average Brit man`s attractiveness is...well...

My parents are both still alive (aged 85 and 80), they were married on the Queen`s Coronation day. A print of her Coronation portrait has hung in their home since day one.

God save the Queen !!

On the bad teeth thing, whilst it`s certainly not every Brit that has bad teeth, I was watching a programme on BBC iPlayer about Afghanistan the other night, and it was presented by Conservative MP and sometime broadcaster and author Rory Stewart. As I was watching it, I was thinking: yep, that`s exactly what Americans are thinking about when they talk about bad British teeth! :

I always love it when Americans make the comments they do about our Queen and our country.

But they forget their country is an absolute bag of ****. It`s a shame they feel so inferior to the rest of the world they have to spend most of their time insulting it, and trying hard to reassure themselves they are better.

Then they walk outside their front door and remember how much their own country sucks.

Oh, I get it. Americans are just feeling left out because they don`t grand events like this that really brings the country together, do they? And come up with anything, I guarantee it won`t bring you together like this will England. I understand now.

@IbBored...They do not count. Like I said, they are boring and unimportant... that is why they spend so much time concerning themselves with what happens here in America. At least the ones on IAB do.

So...how much does the president of the USA cost the USA? All the security, all the staff, all the comms and other equipment, all the travelling expenses, all the hosting expenses for any foreign leaders and diplomats...oh, and add in the costs of maintaining the White House and its grounds, and every other state building associated with the president.

Does the president of the USA give the USA treasury 5 times that amount of of his own pocket? No.

Does the president of the USA give the USA treasury any money at all? No.

The head of state of the USA is far, far more of a leech on their country than ours is.

[quote]They actually bring in revenue of £160million roughly, as stated here.[/quote]

It`s more than that now. Last year, the Queen voluntarily gave the treasury £231M of her money (in addition to taxes on the rest of her income, which unlike most rich people she doesn`t evade paying) and in exchange they gave her...well, actually they gave her nothing in exchange for that £231M. The £40M or so is for head of state expenses, which would exist regardless of who the head of state was. Even the £7.9M for the civil list goes to head of state expenses (next year, the government will stop pretending the two are separate).

So...anyone who thinks that the royal family is leeching off the country is welcome to get the same deal from me. Work for me, send me any amount of money and I`ll keep 83% of it for myself. You can have 17% of your own money back, but only if you use it only for the expenses you occur working for me.

The "bad teeth" thing again...time for the old question for those Americans who believe it:

Why are teeth so obviously "enhanced" that they look fake a good thing but breasts so obviously "enhanced" that they look fake a bad thing?

There`s nothing wrong with their teeth. It`s only an American thing that people want teeth to be absolutely perfectly straight and white. Their teeth are normal, if not good for anywhere else.

@tedgp
That`s nice. And for the tiny amount they cost each person and the amount of tourism they bring form the states etc, plus the tradition they uphold I`d say they are a net benefit to society, not a leech on society.
