Yes, happy Independence Day!

We are yet to shake off the last vestiges of British colonial rule and elect our own head of state.

And risk having Clive Palmer as our Head of State?

No thanks.

King Charles would be infinitely better than Clive Palmer.

Nope. WAY overdue to get rid of the Brit royalty. FFS effective independence was 118 years ago!

Maybe it's because the USA will collapse if all the Illegal immigrants that work are stopped...
Almost every movie and TV show you see about America (I know is highly distorted) shows illegals working, usually the house staff, gardeners ,restaurant staff, cleaners, Put these Business's and Families in Jail if they hire a person that isn't allowed to work.
No work you will find the crossings will be the other way ……. :purple

LOL :rofl :WTF :WTF :WTF :WTF :WTF :rofl :rofl : That's why they get paid so little--> because it already is illegal....

:tweed :tweed :tweed :tweed :tweed :rofl

yes that's right Bongy, the problem is it's not illegal to hire them, if they started putting people in jail for hiring these people then the problem would be much less.... :purple

So why have a Green Card process if it's not needed?

you hit the nail on the head, there is no reason to enter the USA legally, because you can still find work.....
Start putting Employers in jail and that would soon change, where a multi billion dollar wall will just mean more boats will enter America like they did from Cuba and not deal with the people already there. :purple

He actually got my respect doing that, he married Diana because he was required too. He married Camila because that's what his heart wanted....
Personally I think he grew a set and did what is best for him.... :purple

And yet, our Constitutional Monarchy has a better standard of living than your Republic.

Isn't ironic, don't you think?

I think you're missing the point - that what has contributed to the success of our country has been the institutions of our government, which the Monarchy is a large part of.

Norway isn’t in thrall to neoliberalism. We are, the Brits are , the yanks are and those countries are turning into shitholes because big tax cuts to the already rich means social welfare, infrastructure, health and education will have to be robbed of the funds they need.

Yeah, like helping the yanks pull off a coup down here. No thanks, want no part of that medieval relic.

If King Edward had not become besotted by Mrs Simpson and abdicated England would have had a fascist sympathiser on the throne when WWII started? Nah, piss royalty off back to medieval times.
