    1. This is a good reminder of why you all should be EXTREMELY grateful that the Queen has not chosen to leave. Can you imagine Charles in Charge???

    6. You think jail would change them? Tell me again how much jail changed Epstein. Or do you think they would be sent to a DIFFERENT jail??? Maybe the one where they’ve got Tommy… The REAL disincentive for them would be the gallows.
