A

BILL TO

Call a referendum on abolishing the monarchy.

1- Referendum
(1) A referendum is to be held on whether the United Kingdom should abolish the monarchy.
(2) The question that is to appear on the ballot papers is— “Should the United Kingdom abolish the monarchy?”
(3) The poll options are to be— “Yes - abolish the monarchy”, “no - keep the monarchy”, and “Spoilt Ballot”
(4) The day appointed under subsection (2) must be in September 2017

2- Citation and commencement
(1) This Act extends to the United Kingdom (and the tsr MHoC).
(2) The provisions Section 1 of this Act come into force on Royal Assent
(3) The provisions in Appendix 1 of this act if “Yes - abolish the monarchy” is successful.
(4) This Act may be referred to as the Mornarchy Abolition (Referendum) Act 2017

Appendix 1

1- Abolition
(1) In Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the people are sovereign.
(2) The head of state for the UK will not from the date of commencement of this Act be appointed by birth.
(3) From the date of commencement of this Act, the UK’s formal name shall become ‘The Republic of Great Britain and Northern Ireland’.

Notes:
The home of modern democracy currently has a unelected head of state so we should give the people of the uk (and tsr) a say on whether they want to keep the monarchy.

Nay. There's no good reason to abolish the monarchy and nothing to warrant such a referendum.

Honourable members should note that the Monarch is one of the most cost effective Heads of State in the world, costing less than the American President does annually. I didn't need to read the Bill to vote nay, as a staunch monarchist I believe that the british monarchy is far more of an asset to our country than a liability.

God save the Queen!

In the same way you supported the mass PM, this could increase activity to the house.

I think you will find, by looking at her Majesty's approval ratings, that the British people wish to keep the monarchy, not abolish it. This is nothing but a republican attempt to seed such sentiments into the british people.

This doesn't abolish the monarchy, it gives the British people a choice(TSR in this case), are you royalists running scared away from the electorate( you would probably win).

There is no reason to remove a unelected head of state?

Aye

We ''apparently'' live in a democratic country but yet can't even elect a head of state. If you want a true demoncracy we need to abolish the monarchy!

Anyone thinking of using ''tourism'' as a arugument not to abolish the monarchy is not a good arugument. Tourism won't suffer, Just look at France they are doing pretty well after they got rid of the monarchy. Tourism will in fact remain unchanged even increase and people all over the wolrd will still come and vist our country regardless.

Yay let's use polls and reverse Brexit, there is a reason that people vote in referendums and elections instead of just going on polling.

This debate is about a REFERENDUM on the queen.

You could have said the same about brexit.

Stop running scared from the electorate.

This debate should be about a REFERENDUM , the actually monarchy debate is for the referendum

Salty over what?

As a liberal you should allow the people to have a say, you support a second EU referendum after all, you should support a referendum that will increase activity and give the people a choice over something really important.

So in other words you don't care about activity in the house that was just a convenient excuse on the mass pm issue?

No, this is a pathetic attempt by the republicans to try and realise their dreams of a British Republic.
