Before I write anything .. I am a republican.
Although the monarchy generates tourism for these Isles it is still undemocratic to have a head of state that nobody has chosen - even if they have no or limited powers.
This kingdom should embrace a republic after this current monarch is deceased, however I firmly believe there is more important issues to be dealt with e.g. the national defecit before we think about any changes of constitution.

Did you know that it is illegal to conspire to bring about a republic.
What would you do to those who would take up arms to defend the Queen, all of the armed forces swear an oath to the Queen. No act of parliament can over ride this.
Any act by parliament would in its self be treason.
Read up on the law mate, Magna Carta would be a start.

All I see them as is a tourist attraction. They neither irritate nor excite me.
