    We do have a great history of anti-monarchism in Essex, don't forget Wat Tyler and his men in the Peasants Revolt. About time we had another. The TOWIE Treasoners?

    Ha, that's the spirit Frankiiii. We seem to get a lot of those sort of comments whenever we run a royal story - perhaps Essex is a county of anti-monarchists? Personally I appreciate the tourism and heritage that they bring to our nation but I also agree with the quote from (I think ...) the comedian Rich Hall who said (roughly): "No one ever climbs up the Eiffel Tower and says 'great view - but what this place is really missing ... is a monarchy!" Put it this way, if we were going to roll out the guillotine there is another palace, not too far from Buckingham, whose inhabitants would be more deserving of being first up to the block, in my opinion.

    To ask her why her and her unelected parasites continue to bleed us dry. 60 years of tyranny, off with her head!
