Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Quote:
You realise that the UK isn't the only country on earth with a monarchy, don't you?

Maybe it's because the UK monarchy is so popular (or is it the obsessive media making such a big song and dance about them every other day? ) that everyone sees them as fair game to pull to pieces for "god knows why".

The kings and queens of the other European countries (or even the handful of ROW monarchies) don't really come in for such intense international criticism, do they?

Can you imagine telling another country that they should just shut down hundreds of years of tradition which has shaped the history and present day life of society?
Apart from Liechtenstein I don't think any of the others have the power the UK monarchy has (whether exercised or not - and it is to a geater extent than many believe).

And the reason for its apparent popularity is the massive brainwashing most Brits receive as children.
