  1. another irony – not funny: the royals will most likely use libyan and venezualan gold to work out better terms.

  2. seems sound and insightful observations.

    the only point i want to argue doc, is that you might misunderestimate the royals. they almost certainly have taken lessons from their boss the rottenchildren. they can never consolidate enough wealth. especially wealth collected from and on the backs of the masses. they probably feel if they’re preying then they’re being prey.

  3. “Royalty watchers” may have noticed that in recent times, especially since the retirement of Prince Philip, Prince Andrew has been accompanying the Queen to many public engagements, which could be an important “signal”.
    Joseph is on to something in his analysis and it would be unwise to dismiss the existence of a current role for the British royals, whatever your historical or political perspective may be.

    1. dana, that put the picture in my head of andy and his closest personal friend jimmy saville going out on their boat rides chumming together. yick.

  4. It seems to me that the ‘discussions’ between the Brit royals and the Chinese Politbureau come down to the dissolution of Empire. The Twentieth Century saw Britain go from Victorian pomp-&-ceremony (“the sun never sets over the Empire”) to being almost a junior member – although nuclear armed – of the EU. This was mirrored in the decimation of UK manufacturing industries and the sense of the islands almost becoming an agrarian backwater. What an affront to Empire!

    In addition, there is the sense that EU officials want to “make an example” of the UK in Brexit negotiations, to scare-off other nations from considering similar actions. Nasty. Add to that the continued ‘withdrawals’ of other nations’ gold reserves from British soil, and you have the sense of a seismic shift of the UK into almost irrelevancy.

    So, I could see the royals “reaching out” to whomever might stay that slide. I don’t think it will be the US. “Special Relationship” will be fought-to-a-draw by anti-royal legacies. Russia? Nope. So, that leaves Britain to the mercies of the Chinese.

    Bilateral, eh? I suspect the Chinese have very different feelings towards the time of British Occupation than the Brits have of “our glorious Eastern Empire.” And the Brit royals are finally vulnerable…

    Somehow, this seems like a dangerous brew of “an enemy of my enemy,” “strange bedfellows,” and “revenge is best served cold.” Time will tell…

    1. i dunno g. seems the royals and and rottenchildren long ago discarded control of manufacturing as a power base – at least control on their home soil. is there any question who controls the mfg that is now asia centered? almost completely?

      if memory serves john kenneth galbraith was involved as an economist in bomb damage assessment in ww2 (see “fog of war”). in particular he was in the staff who determined that the dresden method of firebombing was a failure tactically for the allies. it was intentionally worse than nukes. unfortunately for the allies, the germans rebuilt their shipping hub infinitely faster since the bombing made for such a complete demolition. it saved the germans work. in terms of mr global’s agenda it proved a great boon. they changed how all sides attacked and hence enabled better industrialization wherever they wanted. kinda remind you of cali wild fires?

      1. ZDB, I agree with you from a Globalist viewpoint. If you are emotionless enough to as$ess economics from a computer-centered viewpoint, your home country is meaningless. Including manufacturing…

        However, I suspect the Brit royals still have a soft spot in wanting to be looked-up upon by their citizens. If you end up with your own country falling into Dark Ages feudalism, that will probably not be the case. Hence, the move to create a modus vivendi with the Chinese…

  5. Could the Chinese be playing one barbarian off another barbarian as for Italy when it was the heart of the Roman Empire it played the same game.

  6. Robert Barricklow

    The royals don’t want to play second fiddle.
    The bilateral puts both on equal footing[at least in theory].
    Is the golden era two fold:
    drugs and/or gold – backed instruments?

    The EU is seeing Italy & England establishing an exit strategy that requires a…

    1. Robert Barricklow

      ti t for tat.
      The Greece example didn’t quite work as an incentive.
      Now, what is the EU going to do about these upstarts?

  7. anakephalaiosis

    Bad play actors repeat themselves. They try that, which has worked before, out of desperation.

    REAL theater is to really become that, which is projected. That is creation of reality. I am who I am. A Cyning.

    It may come as a surprise, to learn, that these so-called majesties are fumbling in darkness with no clue. They are copies of copies.
