Apparently an estimated 2/3 people support the Monarchy. I'd like to know your views.


(Very pleased with all the responses! So interesting to read. I honestly didn't expect this turnout. TSR is the s**t!)
Appreciate it all. Thought-provoking stuff.

I would never support anything so seditious or downright traitorous.

Creating a presidency will just add more beuracracy and potential parliamentary deadlock (like the US), or worse, politicise the role of a relatively impartial head of government. But this may all change when the spider-scribbler ascends the throne.

there is no way of legitimising the existence of a monarchy regarding how a fair state should operate, so yes.
the idea that the monarchy creates tourism, too, is hugely weak.

Is it that time of the month already?

OP, wouldn't it have been easier to search for any one of the hundred or so other threads that have been done on this topic this year? Can guarantee you'll get the same answers.

Of course not, although there are legitimate issues over how much is too much wealth etc.

Can there be an 'I'm completely apathetic towards this issue' option?

Economically they make sense. They bring the country a lot of money through the queens estate. But personally i do not really like them. Their accents annoy me, and how they think they can always be in the public eye and remain private and behind closed doors. One thing is for sure they ordered someone to take out Diane

No, of course not. We have a well-functioning constitution. Having a head of state above party politics and able to bring a lifetime of experience to bear on the functioning of government are good things.

When it comes to things like this I am rather conservative. We shouldn't seek change just so we can label ourselves progressive/modern/liberal. If a system works well and is long standing, why change it. The idea of a monarch works within our general values of Liberty.

In short i support the monarchy.

I would like to see the Monarchy expelled from the Government, but kept as a cultural interest.

I would like to see an end to their benefits as well.

But the majority do, so you're bound by them.

They don't hold any real power anymore, so what would be the point?

Yes, the 50p per capita they take out is clearly so dreadful when they put in £4 per capita, and upon abolition and the incorporation of the royal estate that dropping down to about 50p it is so much better, oh, and that's without a large portion of the 50p per capita expenditure on the head of state going away. Congrats on costing the taxpayer 3 or 4 quid each
