Press TV documentary: The Power behind the throne

Investigating into today’s power structure in the UK and the role played by the British monarchy, this eye-opening documentary reveals the grossly disproportionate and undemocratic wealth and power of Britain’s Royal Family. The programme educates the viewers about the sheer wealth of Britain’s unelected monarchy and trails through the various assets and sources of income to which a random family, born into a historic mesh of multiracial kings and queens, unfairly believe they are entitled. The UK with its dark and scattered history of political struggles has become the playground of monarchic power and influence. The documentary exposes all the main instruments of wealth of the British monarchy and provides clear commentary as to why Britain may be the most contradictory democracy in the world.

    I can’t see who made this doco – can anyone tell me who’s behind it?

    Couldn’t have put it better myself and I am a Brit. Not only do they have wealth but some of them are as thick as slurry.

      I believe PressTV is state funded by Iran, a state where the Ayatollah is essentially a monarch or sorts.
      Personally I actually prefer keeping monarchy, though I admit I don’t pay much attention to them. Having a monarch means you can take the piss out of the prime minister in a way you can’t in a republic.
      Overall Constitutional Monarchies have worked better than republics. Then again I am Canadian, and we don’t get to see the monarch that often, which is fine with me too.
      I will note something I find odd, though the Royal family is generally well thought of in Canada (well when we think of them anyway), it seems to me that the Yanks actually fawn over them more, I don’t know if it is their celebrity culture, or lack of a monarch or both that is the reason for this.
