Personally, and this is also the consequence of the changing historical, social, societal and ideological of the France, I would define as:
-reactionary politically
-revolutionary in terms of social
-anti liberal on the societal level
-nationalist ideological

It's a relief to see that the link was a mistake, and that the Crown Prince's consort & daughter aren't incipient communists.[smile]

I agree. Toryism developed under Charles I, and the Constitution at the time saw 'Parliament' as the King, Lords, and Commons. Which is why Charles' murder was unconstitutional, because, without him, there was no 'Parliament' to pass the death sentence. Of course, things have changed, as Bagehot pointed out during the reign of the Queen-Empress. However, that's why I call myself a 'Semi-Jacobite Tory'. I want (in an ideal world) the Stuart Constitution restored under the House of Windsor.

I remember years ago, before many of you were born, I belonged to the 'Tory' (Conservative and Unionist) Party. I was a member of a reactionary ginger group called Prag. We were very proud of the fact that we belonged to the oldest political party in the world. Toryism was founded on 22 August 1642, when His Majesty raised the Royal Standard at Nottingham.

It's too bad there are no Tories left in the Tory Party![mad]

'Monarchy can easily be ‘debunked;' but watch the faces, mark the accents of the debunkers. These are the men whose tap-root in Eden has been cut: whom no rumour of the polyphony, the dance, can reach - men to whom pebbles laid in a row are more beautiful than an arch. Yet even if they desire equality, they cannot reach it. Where men are forbidden to honour a king they honour millionaires, athletes or film-stars instead: even famous prostitutes or gangsters. For spiritual nature, like bodily nature, will be served; deny it food and it will gobble poison.' C.S. Lewis God save Her Majesty Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom, Canada and Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith, etc.! Vive le Très haut, très puissant et très excellent Prince, Louis XX, Par la grâce de Dieu, Roi de France et de Navarre, Roi Très-chrétien!

My preferred form of government is democratic hereditary constitutional monarchy, but I'm not opposed to the existence of absolute monarchies. I'm a Kurdish nationalist, a secularist and a social democrat. I vote for the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, which is a secularist and social democratic Kurdish nationalist political party. The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan is one of the two major parties of KRG (the autonomous regional government of South (Iraqi) Kurdistan). I support a world order based on sovereign nation-states. I'm opposed to interference in the internal matters of other sovereign states, and I support borders between sovereign states being drawn according to the principle of national self-determination.
