Too much partying for the Jubilee, perhaps?

Just kidding. CNN is saying that everyone has been evacuated.

In case no one noticed I was kidding, I hope they put it out before it causes serious damage.

According to reports, no Royals are even at the Palace. All of them were there last night for a classical music concert.

There was meant to be another pop concert tomorrow, it seems must strange that it is on fire over the Golden Jubilee weekend and now there are news reports on UK TV which are very strange and shot saying the fire has now been contained and repeating that phrase over and over again.

Windsor Castle managed to have a serious fire during the 90s.



It is amazing what can be accomplised when nobody takes the credit

It's not that serious or dramatic, the fire is limited to only a small section of the palace, no injuries, no panic, it's under control,

Sounds like Ozzy Osbourne was one of the guests for this pop festival. Could he have started the fire?? Just a thought. Sounds like something ozzy would do after he threw a log through a neighbors window!!


Two rules in aviation, don't hit anything and don't run out of gas, cause if you run out of gas yer gonna hit something.

It hasn't gone bad, just another inconvenience, the fire wasn't anything major like the media is making it out to be.

Really, who cares?

If Buckingham did burn down she has about another 10 mansions/castles/palaces she can live in (all payed for by the commonwealth ). I'm sorry but I'm not going to feel sorry for a billionaire foreigner who had a fire in one of her houses on her 50 year anniversary. I mean how much of an ego must she have at seeing all of her sheep, oops I mean subjects chanting 'God Save The Queen' wherever she goes. I for one do not intend to feel sorry or support a foreign leader, who was not elected, does not care about the other nations that she is head-of-state of, has been in the job for waaay to long and is dangerously inbred.

So if Ozzy was in the area during the time of the fire, I guess we know how it started.

I dont know if all Australians feel the way I do, but there is a clear push towards an Australian republic (i.e: The Australian Republican Movemen) and there is much contempt for the Queen as many Australians believe that she has abandoned them. She is supposed to be our Queen after all, and we pay her a considerable sum of money every year. So when we see H.M going to the opening of a telephone box in London and not even making an appearance at the Olympics in Sydney, we start to wonder if she cares at all about us.

I think I can speak for the majority that the Queen needs to take a more active role in the affairs of her nations (not just the UK) or she must 'ship-out' so to speak.

Er, the civil list is from UK taxpayers. You lot don't pay her a bean, and I suspect you know that.
(Unless you believe the propaganda of that giant turd Australia sadly excreted called Rupert Murdoch, now there is someone who really avoids paying tax, but he's 'a good bloke' isn't he?)
The Royal Family pays travel costs, be it on BA, the RAF or RAAF.
And the Queen is not supposed to take a more active role in affairs, she is a non-political head of state.
So we are all 'sheep' then? That's like me saying all Aussies are criminally-descended bludgers.
Just plain stupid.
If maybe you are still bitter about what happened to Whitlam in 1974-75, look who may have been behind the destabilising of his government in the first place, clue: they are based at Langely in the US. Anyway, the Governor General of the time never consulted the Queen.
But it's up to Australia to decide what to do, funny how the 'mass' Republican campaign over there went down the toilet last time around though!
Maybe all that contempt muddled their brains, must be some explanation to making such a complete cock-up of their post Queen head of state plans, unless they were so arrogant they thought the Australian people wouldn't notice......'arrogant', bet they called the Queen that plenty of times!
But I think Australia will be a republic by 2010, how much of that is to do with the changing racial mix of the nation though?
