Subject: RE: BS: Is Monarchy Obsolete in the UK?
"The point you are missing is that all these powers have to be exercised by someone.....The question therefore is, is it better for this position to be filled by a politician or by someone who is separate from the political process? "

Personally, I think the question is: is it better to have this position filled by someone who has merely inherited it whether they are fit for the position or not, or an elected person, with a fixed term, who can re-elected or kicked out depending on whether they have been judged to have done a good job or not?

In other words, do you believe in democracy or not?
