The royalists are in a lather again over a proposal to abolish the Parliamentary oath of allegiance to the queen (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1042737/Now-MPs-want-ditch-500-year-oath-allegiance-Queen.html
). The passion of the rants is quite remarkable, lots of references to treason
Sack every one of these Treasonous commoners.
Her Royal Highness and successors are the Head of State. End of debate.

putting people in the Tower or worse
One word covers those proposing such a move 'Traitors' and as such should at the very least arrested and taken to the Tower.
If they can't swear allegiance to the Crown, they cannot be trusted with the Country!
So then, name those involved in the plans to overthrow our Monarch, let's be having them.

monarch? Fuck off. I didn't vote for her.)
This I would consider to be at the very least Treason, All twenty two MP's who are demanding this should be stripped of their office, Kicked out onto the street and forced to walk the streets with placards around their scrawny necks declaring their guilt.
This smacks of the EU And the shifty way its operates.................

and repeated references to the EU for some reason (apparently it's only one short step from getting rid of the oath to becoming part of an EU totalitarian superstate)
To be replaced with an oath of allegiance to the EU I expect.
Lets examine the Lisbon Constitution once again, that one must be in there somewhere.

My favourites are always the ones where they manage to squeeze in as many of their hates as possible just to be safe
Wake up my fellow British people and smell the coffee. This is a sustained effort to force Britain into the EU. Abolish the monarchy, destroy British traditions, hand over powers to Brussels bit by bit, make our new £20 notes look like Euro money (the others will follow soon enough I am sure), allow our currency to be devalued so it is almost the same as the Euro, have crazy EU laws override British law...etc etc. We have already surrendered imperial measures in favour of rip off metric units (liters instead of gallons). The reason they have diluted what it means to be British down to a wishy washy liberal 'tolerance of others' rubbish is so we are more open to EU statehood. Ask yourselves why they allow uncontrolled mass immigration from the EU and the rest of the world? With a more diverse population, there is less unity and patriotism, allowing them to get away with their schemes to end our democracy and sovereignty. Stop voting Labour and Lib Dem and wake up please!

But this is the best:
Slowly but surely these traitorous men are unpicking the constitution and the things that bind Britain together as a nation. Do they know what they are doing? Like the Roman Empire a Nation is an idea. Men for centuries have fought for that idea. No one asked them to do this like we never asked these MP's to authorise us the become a part of a corrupt super state called The EU where according to the auditors 95% of its budget is unnacouinted for/missing. Because that is what this is about, the dismemberment of Britain so that it can be taken over and our foriegn reserves handed into an EU bank. But 22 MOP's are nothing if the over 650 ignore their nonsense. Why dismember what has proven to be the best idea in Centuries when while all others collapsed out nation prevailed against all odds?
