GUEST,Andymac Lyr Add: Royal Wedding (McLean) (64* d) RE: Lyr Add: Royal wedding (McLean) 24 May 18

For goodness sake, OBSERVER (aka troll, it seems) has decided to have a go at a well-respected contributor here for writing a song about an event which has been all over the news. Why? What's got their goat? Talk about an OTT reaction.

As for a dislike of the desire for Scotland to be a republic, tough. It's a perfectly legitimate wish which many hold, just as your wish to maintain the monarchy is. I can disagree with monarchism without descending into personal insult such as "you deal in lies and misrepresentation". Don't claim it's about upholding accuracy, whatever happened to artistic licence?
The exact costs of the wedding may be unknown but we can still declare it a waste of public money at a time of unnecessary austerity.
As for your claim regarding Royal tourism- people come to the UK to see the buildings and experience the history: note that Versailles is the 2nd most popular tourist attraction in France- remind me again what happened to their monarchs?
The tourists don't visit because they might bump into the Queen or someone-there's as much chance of that happening as of me getting a bauble. You're confusing our outdated monarchy with a modern one, such as in Denmark.

I ask again, what has offended our anonymous guest so much that he/she is trying to shut down a discussion about a song?
