Queen Elizabeth To Abdicate: Count Down

Relationship status update: abdicated - place your bets ...

As you know, the queen of the UK has moved to opening a Facebook page. (After Flicker, Twitter and YouTube) She has always been a modern monarch, one of the first person in the world to use email.

Is it time she applied her modernity to politics, and abdicated, to open the door to a Republic? I think it is only a matter of count-down: I take bets for 2012 after the Olympic Games.

How would a republic make things any better? It's fine the way it is, no need to get rid of the queen. It would make much more sense to concentrate on the goverment, you know the ones who have real power. That's what needs to be improved.

I like the Queen and so do the Brits, the royal family serve as a nice distraction every now and again.

That will never happen! The queen is loved. She has no power over the country, people love haveing her as the figurehead. Its not just the old foggies that remember the coranation that would say they love her either. It's not just the queen either, its the whole royal family. The traditions that have been aroung for hundreds of years.

even the aussies voted to keep the queen as their figure head... she has no power. They just love the monarchy and everything it stands for

i dont agree - she seems to have the support of the majority in UK. while i'm not a lover of monarchy - its the people in UK that will decide and thats the way it should be. as an irish man - i couldnt give a rats fuck - we may be a republic here but looking at the damage that has done in the past few years - i am even questioning democracy at this stage

The Queen rocks! Why would she abdicate? She is a fantastic figurehead and tourist attraction for England. What do we have that's similar? The Blarney Stone?

My Uncle got an OBE a few years ago, it was a great day, and he can stick it on the end of his name.

They don't really get away with anything though, their every move (and even ones they didn't make) are played out in the tabloids.

Lol..at Blah a Republic by the year 2013........
Why should she step down for god sake, her people adore her!!!
She is merely a figurehead to many, and the majority in the United Kingdom have no quibble that the Royal Family are an expensive on the system, but thye do generate a huge ammount in tourisim so I guess that is why so few object to them...
