  1. I welcome the royals. I hope they take a good look at the dictator running the place here. They should remove the puppet GG we have here. If SVG remove the Queen Ralph will suspend parlement and declare himself ruler for life. Long live the Queen. Eventhough the british are racist they still beter than Ralph and Julian.
