The problem I have with films that centre on the British monarchy is that I’m Irish And so predisposed to dislike them. All that pomp and ceremony that exalts the royal person. Bleurgh I hates it. I’m pretty far from a royalist. So there were a few moments during The Young Victoria when my hackles were raised. But for the most part I really enjoyed this film. It isn’t really a film about Victoria as a queen or even an indepth study of her. It is more of a romance story. So fairly light and fluffy.
RT @Zahn_Zee #NotMyPresident is trending in Ireland because people are fundamentally misunderstanding the role the president plays: he checks for constitutional contradictions. He has no legislative power; we're a unitary parliamentary republic - The president is not a member of Dáil Éireann
