Meddling Prince Charles Embarrassment to Royal Family
The last time that a British monarch set foot in the house of commons, his head was chopped off. The result of which lead to the formation of the Republic of England. England did not return to a monarchy for the better part of a decade, perhaps it is now time to return to those days.
Republic of Great Britain
Should it ever be declared that the United Kingdom should be converted into a republic, it seems by necessity that the title of United Kingdom should dissolve. A Kingdom by definition requires a monarch and by replacing the Monarch of Britain with a republic, this would be lost.
Changes to the way our political system works would have to be made; the House of Lords being more directly associated to the reigning monarch would need to be changed (really it does need to be changed already), to an democratically elected body.
Service to the people by the elected bodies of both houses of parliament would surely lead to more engagement by the people with their political figures. The people would start to regain the trust of the parliament, and the realization of the weakness of the use of a Monarch would become stronger by every day. The democratic republic of Great Britain would be formed.
Until that glorious day (which shall be a national holiday I am certain), we must put up with politicians being interfered with by many factors.
Prince Charles of Wales: The Meddling Prince.
Prince Charles, the heir apparent to the throne of Britain has been in the press for meddling in the affairs of others more than once. Lately his appearance has came in the form of meddling in the internal affairs of Parliament itself. Such actions should not be acceptable of a Prince of Great Britain, less so the future King.
Prince Charles has been accused by a spokesman for former Prime Minister Tony Blair as having been guilty of attempting to inter fear with the government’s strategies on a number of issues. These cover such wide scope as the British dealings with the Peoples Republic of China to less urgent matters as genetically modified crops. I am certain that the Prince has no qualifications that would make his unique insight into either of these matters relevant to the deliberations of the government.
Furthermore, in less than 10 months, he has been accused of meeting with no less than 9 ministers from the coalition government. This is a worrying number of secret meetings to have with political figures.
Secret Hand Written Letters.
The Prince of Wales is well known and has a reputation of having writing letters to anyone he feels needs to get a scolding off. A panel has been set up to consider the future role of the Monarch in Britain, and it has suggested that the Prince needs to be open and transparent about his interfering in public affairs. Although I must admit, his interfering should really not be tolerated and should publicly apologize for his actions.
Future of Britain not a Monarchy
There are many people out there that will view this latest outburst by the Prince as a time to move away from a monarchy once and for all. It is a time to build a strong future for Britain, the first step is definitely becoming more democratic. Get rid of the house of lords as a nominated for life entity and get rid of the Monarchy. When we start electing everyone that represents us we have a chance to influence our own political future.
