We have, which is why we're not interested in becoming a state for the ol' US of A... :mrgreen:

Not one state, like five or so. Or you could just keep on being a wholly owned subsidiary, your choice.

To be fair, England seems to leave them well enough alone.

To placate old coots who still love her...
We can turn the cash around when we're tired of looking at her ugly mug, you know... :wink:

Will that be considered an improvement, though?

That means, for Canada, if we still pretend to adhere to the British crown, that our money will have to become much, much wider to accommodate his gigantic ears... :mrgreen:

A lot of people, even with in the Royal circles think Charles is going to abdicate right away to William.

He's not popular and rumor has it he is getting early onset alsymers.

I definitely think he should abdicate in favour of William. William and Kate will be hugely popular in my opinion. Elizabeth is just holding out so Charles doesn't get the throne.
All I ask is a tall ship, and a star to steer her by.

I dont think not wanting to die counts as holding out. She might be going for the record and beat Victoria.

Inflation of money? I mean, the value remains the same, there is just more stuff needed to represent that value.
