I rarely care about any wedding, so the wedding of two perfect strangers means fuck all to me. Not saying I dislike weddings, I just don't get excited about them.

Maybe you're just trying to draw attention away from the fact that you're still a Magikarp!
 
Hoping to make a... "splash" with this topic?

 I ain't British so I dont give a shit but the government there seems to be trying to use it as a sort of day of national pride or some shit which seems silly.  I would hate to live in a country with any kind of government funded royal family, I mean paying someone from the taxpayers money for no other reason than they were born into a certain family seems stupid.

Actually the statistics I heard somewhere was that the wedding would make Britain 1 Billion pounds. Plus the obvious fact that the nation kind of needs a pick me up, and royals getting married is as good as any.

There are probably at least two people that care. But I don't.

No. We had the same shit here in Sweden this summer when the princess got married. It was fucking bullshit, our royal family doesn't serve any purpose at all and the damn wedding cost a fucking shitload of money.

Nope. And correct me if I'm wrong, but most British people don't look favorably to the Royal Family, as they consider them some relic of the past?

I doubt it. When the Swedish princess had her wedding the media was all over it but I don't know a single person who cared at all.

No. I think people who become obsessed with celebrities lives are some of the simplest people in the world. They are just people like anyone else, yet for some reason a bunch of idiots want headlines detailing every time one of them goes to take a shit or picks their nose.

I'm pro-Royal, but weddings are boring as fuck at the best of times.  Extra day off will be worth it though.

As someone who was made to do occasional push ups for her Highness Queen Elizabeth II during my times as a Cadet; I fucking care.

I hope it doesn't end with a divorce and the princess dying of Car Pool Tunnel Syndrome.  If it does at least we get to hear Sir Elton John sing Candle in the Wind again.

I doubt it'll bring in 1 billion - but yeah I do reckon it will bring in some serious cash, but to be fair, when it'll cost 20 million to us taxpayers for the security, it kinda leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.

Why? My understanding was that Cameron, or at least the Coalition were doing a fine job with the complete mess that Labor left them in. Admittedly ripping the shit out of military spending seemed a bit rash, but harsh cuts are needed. Now as for it costing money to run this thing I think that's perfectly fair, the royal family is technically the top echelon of British politics, and no doubt a boatload of dignitaries will attend.

We kicked their asses and yet the Queen still runs that place.  I never understood Britain. 
 
I'm just tired of it being on OUR news, this is America.  What the hell does the Queen and her family have to do with America?

All I care about is that she is damn fine looking while he is one ugly sob.
 
On a side note, I still can't believe the queen is alive.  Either they got some secret meds to keep her going or not having to work a day in your life makes you live twice as long.  I can just image the media when it does happen and all the fuss about her ugly ass son getting the crown.  Thou, be a damn shame if he died off quick so we could see some young blood as the king.
 
.... I read too many novels about the old Britain.

Serious question for you Brits, 
 
What's the Queen to you now?  It's been hundreds of years, and you guys still gossip over the tinniest thing.   Also, where would Hogwarts be located at, as I would like to understand more of how you Londoners live.

Well, the thing is I sort of wish I could care for the royalty in some way, but America doesn't have Royalty. Bristol Pailin was described as American Royalty, but I beg to disagree. 
 
So, I suppose I care a little. It would be interesting to see how it turns out.

I don't care about the royal marriage, still I find it funny people dissing monarchy, especially when it comes to expenses, when a normal democratic regime spends a lot more. It's hilarious!

Since we have a royal family (The Netherlands), we've got royal weddings aplenty. And I couldn't care less for those as for this one. I wish them all best for the future. That is all.

It's a wedding, the perfect place to get drunk, dance like a retard, and say inappropriate things to distant family members. I'm guessing it's even more entertaining if you're a Windsor.

They're not necessary and don't even do anything these days.  But they're a big part of our history and bring in a lot of money from tourism, etc.

They've certainly made it look that way through the media - and if you are upper-middle class and up then yes, it's pretty accurate.  
 
But if you anything like the people I deal with everyday then you won't be - in fact you'll be worse off. Significantly might I add. Not only that, they are going to substantially add to the unemployment line with the cuts they are forcing upon the military.
 
And they have also successfully managed to vilify civil servants (nurses, police men, firemen and all those) pay and their pensions. I can guarantee you my pension isn't golden - it's actually going to be pretty pish. Not only that they have also managed to turn the unemployment services into another blame culture - it's the exact same policy as Labours!!! 
 
What always astounds me is prior to the banking collapse - which cause all this - not us - the tories were arguing that we should be spending more on key sectors.  
 
Don't get me wrong they are doing somethings right, they totally are, but for everything they do right, there are 4 things they do that are fucking terrible..... 
 
 
 
Sorry, I'm digressing aren't I? If a company or organisation is going to organise something on the scale of this wedding they'd be expected to make a significant or complete contribution to the costs, regardless of the dignitaries that are there. I think that at this time, with the cuts, all those that are being made redundant and the supposed 'time of austerity' we shouldn't be footing the bill. There are plenty of better things to spend that 20 million on - like keeping some of the police that are going to loose their jobs on for longer.

Don't worry, the British Royal family will be out of a job soon enough.

As for Cameron and his Conservatives, they're cutting costs BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO. There is no choice in the matter. There is no money, and the debts are piled up, and credit accounts maxed out. Either you cut costs or you print money, and if you print money then goodbye British Pound.

The fact that the government is still printing money on top of austerity measures is worrying. The fact that they're still lying out of their asses about the real state of the British economy with inflation, long term unemployment issues etc, and are still completely pro-war, even whilst trying to cut military budgets seems all a bit farcical. And it doesn't help when you put into place millionaire/billionaire corporatist individuals into positions of power, like Cameron did to oversee the tax avoidance problems in the UK, he put in a fat cat billionaire who himself "cheated" the UK out of approx 200 million pounds of taxes, and now he's supposed to be looking out for other tax cheats.... hilarious.

Cameron is going to save the UK, like the classical band saved the sinking titanic.

Fuck yeah, we get a free day off work.  I'm gonna hit a theme park or maybe a decent restaurant where it is hard to get a table, since all the sheep will be glued to the TV.
 
As to saying the wedding is for any other reason than a horse faced big-toothed inbred aristo marring the modern equivalent of the blacksmiths daughter - pretty sure if anyone was doing it for publicity he would have an arranged marriage to one of the old European or Russian royal lines - it must annoy HRH that the Saxe Coburg-Gotha blood line is being diluted again with a commoner.
