Woke call to cancel the Queen in…
Fresh from his appallingly trite podcast to reform all men, gelded Stuff Millennial columnist Glenn McConnell calls for the cancellation of the Queen because Meghan Markle was sad after doing no research on the British Royal Family, marrying into it and then feeling triggered…
Right at the start of the interview, Meghan said she was unprepared for the reality of being a working royal when she married into the family.
“I went into it naively, because I didn’t grow up watching the royal family,” she said.
“It wasn’t something that was part of conversation at home. It wasn’t something that we followed.
“I didn’t do any research. I’d never looked up my husband online. Everything I needed to know, (Harry) was telling me.
“What does it mean to be a working royal? What do you do? What does that mean?
“I didn’t fully understand what the job was, what was needed of me. There was no way to understand what the day-to-day was going to be like.”
…so the Queen needs to be cancelled because an actress who didn’t do any research at all married into the Royal Family and split it up because you know, it was hard and it made her sad not to do whatever she wanted.
What the Nazi’s couldn’t do, the woke will!!! Cancel Queen Elizabeth the Second!
The Queen fought the Nazi’s FFS, Meghan starred in Suits. Hashtag feminism. Hashtag solidarity.
In the subjective post MeToo world where insufferable Millennials get to cancel anything that triggers them, it’s looking less like progress and more like Mao’s Cultural Revolution.
To hold up an unattributed comment about the skin colour of Archie as proof positive there is rampant cross burning racism within the Royal Family and that a 1200 year legacy must be abolished because of that comment is so high pitched and hysterical only dogs can hear it.
This woke outrage overshadows Glenn’s legitimate point which is an urgent need to review our own constitutional arrangements.
I don’t care about some branding publicity spat that has been remodelled into a woke Millennial moment of truth between the Queen and Meghan, but I do care about our Constitutional arrangements.
Consider a NZ Parliament Upper House that has 50-50 representation between Maori and Pakeha. If Sovereignty was never signed away, then the Government of today has a responsibility beyond paltry compensation for past injustices , it must provide real power sharing solutions between the Crown and Māori.
Having a 50-50 Upper House with the power to delay legislation that was not in the best interests of the Nation when it comes to Treaty issues would stop Government’s from fire sales of national assets and prevent things like the Foreshore and Seabed legislation from becoming law.
An Upper House would be seen as a guardian of the Treaty for the maintenance of public well being over private gain, it would show real power sharing and for Pakeha, it would represent a political body that protect their public interests as much as Maori interests.
So let’s proceed with Constitutional amendments because they are the right thing to do, not because triggered Millennials feel sad sad.
