Mr Camerons great promise to clean up politics and all the accusations as Labour ministers were receiving slatings about wrong or inappropriate expense. BBc news last night the Camerons move into Downing Street. Apparently to number 10 first but taking up accomodation in number 11 later but the kitchen and accommodationrequire upgrading. I hope,I really do hope, not on the taxpayers expense. Please ask thatquestion the right wing leaning Taxpayers Alliance. Perhaps Mrs Cameron can sell off some of her parents country estate to pay for it.

Come to think of it,perhaps this and the debt crisis is all a bad dream. Werent we all in this together according to our PM. How could we be spending all the money that the pantomine of the opening of parilament by Mrs Windsor costs. What the heck is that hat on Mrs Windsors head all about. I looked at it and thought why dont this country grow up -this is the 21 century. It looked 19th Tsarist Russia

As I understand it the Camerons are paying for the kitchen themselves, so no need to get yourself all hot under the collar [:)]

and as for the crown, its part of our heritage and as such..........it was in its rightful place on her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the seconds head

Oh and yes this country and growing up, isn't that why we have voting, healthcare, education and we don't have the death sentence??

Maybe we should return to the dark ages that way we can really show the world!!

THAT HAT as you put it is the crown of GREAT BRITAIN i swore an oath of alegance to that crown and to the goverment of this country to me what you have said about the queen and country is slagging off all the british forces that have fought and died for this country and given you the freedom that you have now

On the contary, I am slagging off no one. I have an opinion that the opening of parliament is an expensive pantomine that is throw back to another time. I think the manner in which Mrs Windsor open the Wales Assembly is both dignified and appropriate and provides the model which Westminster should copy.

By father swore an oath of allegiance but not to a person and not a hat, he swore it to the citizens of our country, freedom, democracy and rights. My views never offended my father and he never saw them as a slur on the armed forces

the above voting, education and health care wasn't because of the royals and their ilk, it was in spite of them. brought to the masses by trades unions and people prepared to stand up and be counted.

rodring, at no point in my post did i say it was down to the royals

If they and the "upper class" had had their way we would never have been allowed to read, write or be cured of illness as that would put us on par with them............which it did!!

I find it strange that everyone (English) wants to wave the cross of StGeorge and bang on about how great England is but then complain about the things that make England unique like our ceremonial, monarchy and state occasions.

As the old saying goes "If it wasn't for Chistmas we'd all be jewish", well if it wasn't for the monarchy, the pomp and ceremony we'd be French.
