King Charles III during the Coronation at Westminster Abbey, 6th May 2023






King Charles III was crowned on Saturday the 6th of May 2023 in London, England. According to the media and protestors who lined the Mall, he was at the time, not the most popular of monarchs, but probably not as disliked as his namesake Charles I who was executed for treason by Oliver Cromwell, or George I who triggered coronation riots..

Though in the UK it is fair to say that protesting is a dicey business, with many Human Rights (freedom of speech and peaceful assembly) becoming effectively quashed - most notably by the Metropolitan police. As the Kingdom descends into a virtual police state, the King becomes even less influential and unable to influence the goings on in Whitehall and behind the scenes in the Houses of Parliament, as more a marionette headpiece.

It is not that the King is unaware of corruption, it is more that the corruption had become entrenched with so many long term cover ups, that he, like his mother before him, feels obliged to tow the 'Party' line, than open the can of worms - and never admit to wrong doing. The Party being whoever is elected to power, as the Government of the day. But then, Edward Thomas PM, is a breath of fresh air to politics; an honest politician.

Much of the UK's ails stem from the escalating National Debt (£2.7 trillion @ May 2023) and cost of living crisis, borne of vision-less leaders, which crashed the NHS and other public services, including rutting and potholes in highways across the land, virtually stripped of tarmac in some locations. Where councils are having to fend off years of institutionalised discrimination and empire building, a practice that is now coming back to haunt them.

Charles has been in the Royal Navy and felt a great personal loss, along with his mother Queen Elizabeth II, when the Royal Yacht Britannia was decommissioned and not replaced - another casualty to continued borrowings. In this fictional story, Charles is not in the best of places, worn down over the years of waiting in line, and grooming Prince William to take on the Throne, with a rebellious Prince Harry as the royal backup, or 'spare' as he famously describes himself. The Firm has been accused of being an institution that discriminates by the back door. Megan Markle being perceived as a thorn in their sides, rather than an asset, in the move to modernisation, and moderate globalization, in the twilight years of the ember of the former British Empire.

The Royal Family are not helped by the obvious links of British monarchs to slavery: Ref King Charles II and the African Royal Trading Company, and King George's South Sea Bubble. Something else they would do well to put to rest. Howsoever to make amends.







In Britain, the economy (as usual) was in a dreadful state on Coronation day, nose diving at an alarming rate since Margaret Thatcher in 1979, and her Poll Tax riots in 1990. No matter how the King, or his mother, Queen Elizabeth II protested poor performance privately from Buckingham Palace, the Prime Ministers' the monarch(s) appointed (without much choice in the matter) just kept on borrowing as a quick fix, getting the very much divided, United Kingdom, into hotter financial water and deeper in debt. As the MPs milked their positions of trust while in power, without a thought for the eventual abyss they created for the workers in society; the electorate.

Against this appalling backcloth, King Charles III had a soft spot for the British Antarctic Survey, relying on the United Nations to police the Polar Regions.

The devastating news that the South Pole was now a virtual free for all (fictionally), and that the unspoiled wilderness was being contaminated and exploited, galvanizes the King to action, as far as he may.

When the King is consulted and advised of the implications by Honest Johnson, he tells the Prime Minister, that he must do what must be done. 


"My dear fellow, I have not the foggiest about your personal leanings, but I rather enjoy reading of the exploits of this Storm character. Do keep that under your hat though, won't you."

PRIME MINISTERS CORNERED - From 1979 to 2023. This represents 40 years of ingrained corruption and negligent administrations. The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is the leader of His Majesty's Government. They chair Cabinet meetings. It is the highest civil office in the United Kingdom.








The appointment of a prime minister by the monarch is based on advice. However, though the advice is technically informal, the monarch would create a constitutional crisis if they did not comply. Therefore, in practice, what is decided in the House of Commons is the decisive event - no matter it is wrong - of the candidate is wholly unsuitable in the role. The voters elect Members of Parliament (MPs), and the MPs choose the prime minister. The system grew in stages as the Commons grew in power and the monarch's authority reduced. Though, if the appointed Prime Minister, is clearly incapable, or unfit for office, in theory, the King could call for a new candidate, if he had the gumption. The obvious recent candidate for sacking, would be Boris Johnson, for misleading Parliament and lying to the Queen about proroguing Parliament. Margaret Thatcher was the inflation queen @ 21.9%. At the beginning of her reign, debt was around 50% of GDP, rising to 103% in 2021, under Boris Johnson. Reflecting the sad fact, that all of the above pictured (Mr Sunack as yet untested) were rubbish at their jobs. It should have been zero inflation and a positive bank balance. Older Government Bonds are now difficult to trade - as new ones offer a much higher interest rate.







SLAVERS - Openly trading in human misery, forsaking the lives of millions of people, in the quest for wealth and power. One might argue that if the British had not done so, that another nation would have stepped up to the lectern. The fact remains, any form of royal family (perpetuating a class society), no matter where, has reached that status on the backs of the subjects that toiled and died, chained to outdated policies, and now to the banking institutions that rule our lives, just as effectively as the Gestapo in Nazi Germany. And that is due to equitable dis-equilibrium. Fiscal policies that still enslave us, save only in financial chains. None the less chains that drain the life out of us. For the benefit of a financial taskmaster, who knows not the meaning of good honest toil. But lives in luxury at the expense of the ordinary working woman and man.
