1. No. I do have the impression that your tabloids get quite obsessed with the younger royalty, but I am aware that tabloids are not representative of the population. Although I do have fantasies where your royalty goes to war with Parliament, wins, and reestablishes the feudal system.
2. Yes. And crooked counts as bad.
3. Not polite so much as somewhat more reserved, somewhat less ready to make friends or call new acquaintances/coworkers by first names.
To anyone not in the US: How closely are you following our presidential election? Why? What if anything will it mean for you? (And please include where you are, of course.)
To Australians: Please explain the meaning, proper usage, and origins of the expression "Blow that for a game of soldiers."
