  • Personally, I think the slimming shoud go further to zero. ;)

    Well, the alternative is a presidential system, but we would no longer have the wealth of experience and the ‘soft power’ that Royalty gives us with such a system.


    So although the system of monarchy has its faults, I think we have a good balance in this country.


    What does need reform is the House of Lords. I would like to see that continue as are forming chamber, but occupied by people better equipped to carry out that role. There also needs to be a system in place to eject those who are not effective and not simply age related.

    I would like to see Parliament burnt to the ground preferably with all the MPs still inside and give the royals another go at running the show when William and Kate take the Throne, not right now but we could prepare for burning the MP's trousers. Coq au vin anyone or maybe some would prefer the Vagina Monologues. :D

    I think that the Crown still has a valid role to play but clearly the peripheral members of the Royal Family should perhaps find other jobs.

  • Nah -- Could you imagine President Corbyn and the instability that would cause. Communism has no place in the UK.

    Or President Starmer or President Boris Johnson


    We need the Crown to keep the zealots and nutters in check.
