If the UK people need to fully understand the flaws, failures, the consummate arrogance, pomposity entailment of Monarchy at its most toxic.

Please I am a monarchist.

However it is time to reassess what Monarchy stands for in the 21st century.

The interview with BBC...

Look, Great Britain history of such rich history ...

63 monarchs of England and Britain spread over a period of approximately 1200 years....History UK

What does this history all mean account for, when Andrew, Duke of York went to stay and break bread with a convicted sea offender

I ask a question, have we reached a watershed, the swords, armour have being replaced with a social media world that I believe rightly demand a reason to continue with Monarchy in its current form.

A recent poll from Savanta ( a pretty respectable polling organization) saw support for an elected head of state overtake support for a monarchy among under 45s.

I haven’t seen the rise of a particularly charismatic leader or persuasive movement promoting the abolition of the monarchy.. The royals seem to be doing a fine job of making themselves look a bit silly or something much worse.

A more concerted campaign with a clear and well publicized plan of how the UK could transition from a constitutional monarchy could be interesting.
