And the Queen still has her claws in ya. I read up on canada, and he same clause is in the Canadian constitution as well, NZ too. I'm not sure about the other commonwealth nations. The Militarily are hers as well to command. She actually has a lot more power then most people think.

That was a she not he, shhh don't tell the queen

I know. There's a fairly strong republican movement in Oz but the conservatives in government have successfully fended it off. There's some talk that when Queen Liz turns up her toes and Charlie takes the throne that we can cut the apron strings.

England's power is so strong that in 1974 the Governor General (the queen's representative) sacked an elected Australian government and ordered a new election. And even THAT wasn't sufficient to force a break.

she can do the same in CA and NZ. To say she does not run the government in any of those nations is very incorrect. In fact in CA her Governor assigns the Prime Minister.

And this is the 21st century. It's time we all moved on.

You guys, as well as the other 2 are virtually separate from England, I was surprised how much power she still had there wen I researched it.

It's an excellent song by Phoenix. The song has everything to do with the Eiffel Tower. And in 1901 Albert Santos-Dumont became the first person to fly from St. Cloud, France to the Eiffel Tower and back in less than half an hour. Significance? I've got nothing.

But it is "Folded" not "Falling".
