Thread Name: BS: Is Monarchy Obsolete in the UK?
Subject: RE: BS: Is Monarchy Obsolete in the UK?
Since we already have an established monarchy which neither interferes with the current democratic process nor actually costs us anything, (the treasury makes a large profit from them, as I think I've demonstrated, despite the protests) I don't see why an argument for retaining them is needed, and I've yet to see a coherent argument for getting rid of them other than plain envy masquerading as 'socialism' or 'republicanism'.
