A right royal farce

Its 10:30am and I'm desperately trying to occupy myself without resorting to what the rest of the world seem to be doing right now:  watching two people they don't know get married.

So, I thought it was time I returned to spouting my opinion right here on my blog.

I am anti -monarchist.  I'm not ashamed of it.  I believe that, in this day and age, it is wrong.  I don't hate the British royal family as individuals (although I do think some of them are buffoons), but I disagree in principle with their existence and, most importantly, with the fact that tax-payer's money is used to finance them.

In relation to this wedding,  I just can't help thinking that, in an ideal world, where they weren't treated like zoo animals in a cage by the rest of us, that this is not how they would have liked their wedding to be. A wedding is an intimate affair that you want to share with those who are special and those whom you love. Not with every Tom, Dick, Harry and Royal wannabes like David & Victoria Beckham. This is not a wedding for William and Katie. It is a pantomime and a farce to pander to what the nation and the world expects. Its funny really, people say women in porn are exploited, even though they are compensated financially relatively well for choosing to do what they do. William has no choice. but is compensated extremely well. And yet he has had to suffer as a 'dancing bear' for the world for the whole of his life and will do so until the day he dies. Is this not state-sanctioned exploitation?

I mean, the poor lad lost his mother as an indirect result of the world's desire to stalk her. Have we learned nothing?
