What I do care about is that I keep having to hear about them all.
Social and mainstream media are both fawning over all things royal and... *sighs* I don't mind like one news-in-brief report or whatever guys, but everyone seems to have freaking lost it, tbh.
And yes, it's great that Charlotte won't be replaced in the succession by her little brother.
But that's just basic levels of decency, to be honest. Equality that should always have been there.
The fact that we even still have a line of succession is f**king awful.
Look, before I go on I should probably explain that where I'm coming from here is very much based on my background: as most of you know by now, I'm Welsh.
- We had Welsh royalty. They were murdered by the English.
- Wales - especially South Wales where I'm from - has a long history of Socialism.
In case you have any misconceptions, Socialism is not the same as Communism, Communism is a type of Socialism. We kinda have a history of both. 😅
I have literally met more people on the far-left - Marxists, Socialist Worker Party Members, Trade Unionists, and actual Communists, than I have Conservative Party Members.
Come to think of it... I don't think I've met any Conservatives... huh. Certainly none who would admit to it!
Wales was also the first place to raise the red flag as the symbol of a worker's revolt. It was literally soaked in blood, because we have a flare for the dramatic.
That's not to say I've never met people who support the British royal family: plenty of people do.
Why don't I, personally, support the royals?
Plus, I'm sick of constantly having to hear about people who:
- I don't know personally
- Aren't important politically
- Have no real talents (except Meghan Markle who actually had a job)
- Are praised for doing 'so much' for charity - they're paid by the f**king state!!! This is literally the least amount they can do for the level of privilege they have in this country.
- Get applauded for doing something like naming their freaking child - most people name their children. It's not rocket science.
- Wear clothes. Not even particularly special clothes. Just any clothes. At all. Surely it would be more of a story if they weren't wearing clothes?!
