Roll on Republic

While the economy crashes, bankruptcies rise faster than the morning sun, peoples homes are being repossessed, energy costs condemming elderly and the poor to potential hypothermia and while unemployment increases, Downing Street finds the time to re-write the law so that female Royals or Royals of any faith, can inherit the Throne and so keep within the law of human rights. Incredible but true.

What ‘human right’ allows an unelected, undemocratic person to inherit the position of head of State, with unbridled power and influence along with vast estates, palaces and castles paid for by taxpayers who can exercise no control over them. Time to change the law regarding Royals indeed, time to abolish this feudal anachronism for good.

Oh! Reports out today also suggest that the monarchy is demanding even more money from taxpayers; so around £150million per year isn’t enough then! That’s around ten times the cost of an average European President.
