The members of the so-called royal family think that they are superior than any other human beings. They have so many privileges. Their descendants do not even need to work because people will feed them for life. This contradicts the idea that everyone is born equal.
While tourism benefits from this family, That is besides the point. While revenues are collected, The government also wastes money for the royal family's security. Also, How much revenue is collected is irrelevant when the existence of this family insults our existence. Not everything is about money
As ana ncestor of the french republic i imagine it just in my blood i hate royalty i even support the ira, If you want to see the difference betwen monarchy and republic look not further than irleand, Eire was a vassal state andbackwards for 700 years one they finally threw off the parasitic british monarchy lok at rieland now! The standard of living of irlean is lie double that of the uk, The best revenge? Liviing well
I think it is time that we had a head of state that was elected by the public, Rather then being determined by their family linage! I have nothing against them remaining as a ceremonial role if thats what people prefer but the head of state DOES have powers. Fair enough, They have chosen not to use them. . . But what if one day they did? Remember they can block an act of parliament and even sack the government! Who is to say that one day a monarch won't attempt to do these? There would be NO accountability to the public since they are unelected. . . . . . Its better we become a republic now in an ordered fashoin then wait until the events describe happen (or just hope they don't! ). . . . And you could garuntee that a monarch that did that would not be likely to just "step down"
Because UK is an unitary country with four different states which is England, Scottland, Wales and Northern Ireland so United Kingdom borders with two countries that is Ireland surrounding the Irish channel and Spain with a territory is Gibraltar in southern Europe and Great Britain have a federal abortion law.
The Royal family had held no real power after the Glorious Revolution lead by Oliver Cromwell. However, The Monarchy had now become a very important symbol of Great Britain's past glory, And also serving as the head of multiple former colonies, The Queen, If beheaded as the idiot on the YES side said, Will involve huge political earthquake in the entire globe.
If it ain't broke, Don't fix it. If it ain't broke, Don't fix it. If it ain't broke, Don't fix it. If it ain't broke, Don't fix it. If it ain't broke, Don't fix it. If it ain't broke, Don't fix it. If it ain't broke, Don't fix it. If it ain't broke, Don't fix it.
The queen has no power whatsoever. She has to agree with any bills or laws parliament passes even if she disagrees with them. The last time the monarch disagreed, There was a revolt. All she does is sign bills and lives in a palace along with her husband. There are a total of 775 rooms in Buckingham palace out of which there are 52 royal and guest bedrooms. Most of the time it is just the queen and Prince Philip so why do they need 52 bedrooms? It is a waste of hard-earned money. Many will say that she is a representative of God, But they why does she live such a lavish lifestyle. Jesus the 'son of God' lived a simple life and wore simple clothes and he is believed to be God's son. The Pope is the head of the Catholic church and he has a fiat. She has no power, And lives such a lavish lifestyle - it is a waste of taxpayers money. The money should be spent on something important like the NHS or making shelters for the increasing homeless people who have to suffer outside in the brutal cold. Instead, This money goes to the Queen - because she just smiles.
