We could get rid of them all.. But it would still cost us greatly..
 They would all go off to their chosen Paradise and we would keep them in the luxury they have become accustomed to..


When Edward abdicated in order to marry Wallis Simpson I am sure he was paid an (allowance) by this country..
  The pension payouts would be vast..
Don't think of a caterpillar dying..Think of a butterfly living.

I have read quite a bit of what the Duke is alleged to have got "up to" during the war.  Anyone else at that time would have been in serious trouble for what he may have done.  It was rather telling that a press release after the war stated his allegiance to the allied cause never wavered and so on.  Why was it considered necessary to release such a statement?  Even now, you wonder if it is safe and wise to discuss these matters openly.
