  • How many years again till they realize the monarch is an outdated institution and the days of a King and Queens rule is no longer necessary? This is just my opinion, not trynna be disrespectful toward the Queen. I just dont see the point for them anymore. My country Trinidad & Tobago fought for our independence from them in 1962 for a reason.

    Sade SongbirdSade SongbirdMánuði síðan
    • @Zack to be clear in all my ignorance Trinidad & Tobago after being taken over by the French and the Spanish was under British rule (your beloved monarch the Queen) until we took our independence from under BRITISH RULE in 1962. While under British rule we were kept as a plantation colony where the slaves continued to wrk. The dictatorship u mentioned was that of UR PRESENT MONARCH. Yes times have changed. But plz remember that many countries fought for their independence from British rule. The Monarch if u will. I distinctly remember the audacity the queen had in thinking Africa needed their sophistication, calling them a land of savages before they came. If the monarch was so important, why did countries seek their independence from them. The British set out to rule over foreign lands for power. Let's not forget that fact.

    • In the UK the monarchy is constitutional not absolute. This means they no longer run the country, but are more there as a symbol of our country. Being British, the monarchy is deep within my history, I'm proud to have a monarchy and hope it never is abolished. It is ignorant to apply one culture to another, Trinidad faced a dictatorship/ absolute monarchy. Quite different to what Britain have.
