Prince William: Country and Discipline

We waste so much money and you're saying we can't find £86,434 to let Prince William fly an RAF helicopter to his cousin's stag night?

You still get those republicans, that's how they brand themselves, insinuating that the Royal Family should go. And they still don't get how much we need the Windsors and how much they gel the country together. Look how bad they're lashing out at the monarchy.

Take Prince William, for example. Only a brave young gentleman would risk flying a £10m RAF Chinook helicopter up and down the country, Officer And A Gentleman-style, to see his girlfriend Kate Middleton in Berkshire. He then put his own life at risk again as he took off to attend a wedding in Northumberland. And how many people would then be so kind "to test their skills to the limit" by flying over London's airspace to pick up their little brother and ferry him to the Isle of Wight to attend their cousin's stag party?

And are you telling me that with all the taxpayer's money that we waste on asylum seekers and crooked politicians we cannot find a paltry £86,434 to finance the Prince's 5-day trip? I mean, are we joking? These people were hand-picked by God himself, no less, to lead us, and we go all stingy on them, Freedom of Information Act and the rest?

They may need those precious Chinook helicopters in Afghanistan, I hear. Well, can't our troops there just walk? What's wrong with today's soldiers? We defeated the Nazis by walking hundreds of miles and those lefties are wailing over a single Chinook! What's the world come to?

So, let's just be happy for William. Like the MoD said in an official statement, "Prince William showed natural piloting skills and an ability to pick things up quickly". Not only that, but also "his final flight tested his burgeoning flying skills to the full and he performed very well indeed."

This is what gives the Royals a bad name. It's precisely this kind of stuff, coupled with Harry's antics and their father's oddity and his lavish 60th birthday.

I'm sure in principle us Brits are pro-monarchiy but too much stuff's being handed to their opponents on a tray.

I'm in the market for new friends (having lost some in a bizarre bleach drinking suicide orgy, according to the coroner), and after reading your article, i am please to say you fit the bill tremendously well
