Britain's Republican Future

We allow a family to decide who should be head of state and to loot multi-millions from the people every year.

"We are not traitors, nor murderers, nor fanatics, but true Christians and good Commonwealth men . . . we sought the public good and would have enfranchised the people, and secured the welfare of the whole groaning creation, if the nation had not more delighted in servitude than in freedom".

John Cook, Solicitor General of the English Commonwealth before he was hanged, drawn and quartered by British monarchists in 1660.


So why complain that other families are allowed to own seats in the legislature? And when some own a seat, what can you say about other legislators who are appointed for life, maybe because they made a generous donation to one of the political parties?

Calling them "my lady" or "my lord" may be demeaning but it's just icing on the cake of real privilege.

And a state church, also with its own seats in Parliament, is at least useful if you enjoy being lectured on your moral failings by those who turn a blind eye to their own.

They all turn blind eyes to the Parliamentary Oaths Act, which excludes republicans from their legislature.

That is the United Kingdom 350 years on from when we first freed ourselves from monarch and lordly legislators.

It's been a long time coming. But we can do it again and more. We can make this nation one that is democratic in its spirit and in its institutions.

A British republic.
