Should We Celebrate the Jubilee? (2012), by Sean Gabb

Sean Gabb, speaking on BBC Radio 5 on the 2nd June 2012.

This clip is a short extract from a debate that was a shouting match between braindead republicans and sycophantic royalists.

Sean Gabb says:

  • That he approves of hereditary monarchy;
  • That, if you expect an hereditary monarch to be more than the equivalent of a shop window dummy, we have the right to feel short-changed by Elizabeth II;
  • That she has presided over the descent of England from a great an powerful nation to a sinister laughing stock;
  • That it was her constitution duty to step in at various times since 1952 and stabilise the system, and that she did nothing.
