Attempted Far Right Monarchist Coup in Germany

This seems a hell of a story

Some old aristo got a bunch of true believers (include Police & Army Special Forces) to begin plotting the overthrow of the German Government in order to (re)install his bloodline to the throne

Would never happen in the UK

Depends on if @hip_young_gunslinger gets his Jacobite on.

EDIT: sorry, probably shouldn’t be flippant but yes, obviously that sort of thing could happen here.

I think I’ve Wolfcastled you. My subtle point was that it doesn’t need to happen in the UK because the bloodlines, thrones & crusty aristos are the everyday meat & drink

HM Police, HM Armed Forces, House of Lords etc

Sounds a bit farfetched to me.

Ah yeah wasn’t 100% sure if you just meant a military coup accepting that the royal line stuff wasn’t relevant.

Him?

That’s the chap

Looks remarkably similar to the Swedish King. I wonder how closely related they are?

He’s got style I’ll give him that

Really nice tie. Looks like the alternate artwork for Is This It.

Amazing that blokes who look like that and…are like that think they’re somehow hard done by and oppressed

Probably rankles him every day that he is forced to live in one of 3 or 4 mansions instead of his great-great-great-great-great-grandfather’s sixteenth century, 200 room Bavarian Palace that is now run by the state as a specialist cancer-care facility or something

All that wealth and privilege doesn’t mean anything if nobody gives a fuck who you are. That’s all guys like this want, to be on TV more. So he got his wish there anyway.

Paisley and bubble chamber images do have a lot in common.

You can’t just leave it there

We wanna see diagrams & equations

I dunno, yeah you’ve got a monarch already but better to also have some noble blood leading the administration as well

There was again talk of a military coup, with rumours of Lord Mountbatten as head of an interim administration after Wilson had been deposed.

The Guardian have the story up in English now

Wonder what happened to Lord Mountbatten :thinking:

Suspiciously well trained far right insurrectionists with military links, is it?

Looking forward to a banger of a Ghost Stories for the End of the World episode on this.
