Referendum on abolishing monarchy should be held when Queen dies say some

That would be a good thing. Put it to a vote.

I’ll bet the Brits keep the royals but it’d be interesting to see how many vote to get rid of them.

If one thinks about it the British monarchy is really an insane institution. They’re just people.

Republic, a grassroots movement that has over 5,000 members and 35,000 supporters, claims the British monarchy is not the “harmless tourist attraction some people think” – rather, it has a history of abusing public money and meddling in politics.

In a statement posted on the group’s website on the eve of the Queen’s birthday, they added the event “reminds us that support for the monarchy is bound up with support for the Queen.” A pink banner on the homepage also wishes “Mrs Windsor” a “happy birthday”, alongside the subtle hashtag: “Stop the reign”.
