I hold my hands up I’m not patriotic but I don’t hate the monarchy either, I don’t agree with it that is all. In the uk we are facing such social control and propaganda because of this death. I do feel for anyone that loses a family member and that the royals are good for our economy. I am a very empathetic person.
However, since her death us peasants are all subjected to rules and changes because of an old lady’s death. For instance -
Radio stations only playing depressive tunes constantly (seriously all day).
BBC TV not allowed to air comedy for two weeks (We aren’t allowed to laugh basically).
Bus stop shelters, bill boards have the queen on them. Every single one!
Businesses/activities closing in respect so most services are restricted.
Changing appointments with businesses if your appointment is on the day of the queens funeral.
TV is bombarded with it. Even backgrounds for tv channels or services have her on.
I may have missed other instances if anybody wants to add.
I may sound harsh to some but nobody is saying anything remotely against this. Only under their breath I’ve noticed.
Yes it’s sad we lost a queen who was loved by many. She was a good gal and she had cute Corgi’s.
But this death is going to cost billions and we’re already in a financial,economic,climate crisis!!! And let’s not forget all the travesty and deception in that family! When us paupers have a family member die, life goes on. Nothing outside changes.
But because we have a monarchy we must obey rules that have been opposed upon us.
Call it therapeutic or narcissistic culture. I’m fed up with it
