But on our terms, not Johnny Foreigner's agenda!

But only the immediate family should be funded from the public purse.

Ahhh! I knew I'd find comfort and solace here. What on earth have the UN to do with whether we are royalists or republicans. If there was a problem, and I'm sure there isn't, I think the UK would be pretty quick in making their views known. O.K. there have been 'gaffs' recently with the younger branch of the family but I don't believe that has much impact on how we percieve the Royal Family as a whole. The article I read suggests the monarchy costs each taxpayer 62p per year. I reckon that's good value for money.

Those countries criticising us, as mentioned in the article, have far more serious problems to address at home first, before trying to put our house in order.

In my view "Yes Please" but not at the whim of any other country or group of countries.

I fail to see what that has to do with the UN whether we keep our royalty or not. Also "Iran complained about the UK's record on tackling sexual discrimination." really? I think they need to get their own house in order before they start snipping at other countries on their sexual discrimination issues.

We'd end up being told by "Johnny Foreigner" to scrap our history too if they get their way on this.

Saudi Arabia is on the Human Rights Committee and they think we have a human rights problem because we have a Royal Family and no written constitution

Sorry, I'm speechless...
