Royals Should Be Cut Back: Jeremy Corbyn.

Updated on December 4, 2019

Labour leader: Jeremy Corbyn.

Jeremy Corbyn, because of his left-wing stance, has never been a fan, it is true to say, of the Royal Family. Most of his life, the man, has been and maybe still is, a republican, preferring the UK, to be without a monarch.

However, since becoming the leader of the opposition, he had to adapt, to being in the Queen's presence and accepting her as sovereign. So one would imagine, Mr Corbyn, had to compromise his beliefs, but it is said, the Queen made some accommodation for him too.

Mr Corbyn, is currently on the campaign trail, doing interviews and battling it out, with the likes of Boris Johnson, on tv.

Sophie Ridge, a political pundit with Sky News, interviewed the Labour leader on various issues. The Royal family, in the wake of Prince Andrew, car crash interview, with Emily Maitliss, was brought up. Mr Corbyn, felt, the royal family should be cut back and some of their duties, also, scaled back.

Sophie Ridge, questioned Mr Corbyn, about what he meant exactly, about scaling back the Royals. Corbyn said, there were too many, people, surrounding the central royals, claiming to be royal and hanging on the coattails of the central royals. These are the ones he would cut back on and perhaps scale down on the duties of these so-called royals, maybe even the likes of Princes William, Harry and the rest.

Of course, no doubt, Mr Corbyn's statements, will have royalists taking to social media and other forms of communication, to attack his statement.

In the wake of Prince Andrew's interview with Emily Maitlis, which everyone who viewed it, said, was terrible, perhaps, Mr Corbyn has a point. Whatever may or not have happened with Prince Andrew, the royals it would appear, still believe they are beyond reproach. They appear to live in a bubble, an almost medieval world, where they can get away with things, we lower, mortals cannot. How can this be correct in the 21st Century?

The Royals, have made, some strides towards modernisation, and, help or give their time, perhaps even donate to charities, like mental health.

If Mr Corbyn, did come to power and was able to enact his policies towards the royals, I for one, would support this.

Prime Minister: Boris Johnson.

Boris said royal family was beyond reproach.  Later, he was forced to clarify he mean't the Queen, no doubt after the Prince Andrew debacle.
