Has the age of Royalty in Britain be put to end?


The Royal Family is not expensive to the common British person but the Queen has requested a raise this week because of food prices up 20% and 10% raise to gas prices.
However the Queen did make the Royal household turn out lights and this saved 13% in fuel costs for 2 years strait so Lizzy 2 the Queen does care. And the Royal family pay for themselves do to tourist visits.

Pointless really especially for my countries infrastructure and or economy.When the Queen comes we have to pay millions of dollars in taxation for what 2 days maybe.I find that an evocation of stupidy.

For many years, the British Empire has be known as a successful empire. They conquered a lot of places e.g The New world. The Queen/King is a symbol so it would be nice to keep the symbol to hold the title of the empire.

Plus, the crown is shiny *O*

ok i am english and dam proud of it but this takes the pee, for all the people that dont know wats happening and the reason why the debate of whether to get rid of the royal family is due to there expenses

The cost of the royal family on the tax payer is over 16 million,

why can this not go into helping the poor or NHS but instead of keeping the rich, rich

IN THE LAND OF THE FREE, ONLY THE RICH ARE FREE FOR THE POOR ARE KEPT POOR TO KEEP THE WEALTHY IN POWER.

thats wat my old ethics lecturer use 2 say

They are pretty pointless they do nothing but spend tax payers money, In 2008 do we really need this expensive symbol?
I dont think so

Yosh!!
I think the British should change their national athem from 'God save the queen.' Its rubbish we should have something good, Like jerusalam or marching on together something that shows unity and british spirit etc. Thats why we always lose at sports such as rugby and football ... Its all the National Anthems Fault

no they shouldn't. look at all those countries that let their king/emperor down or go into exile. it's now ruled by multiple parties who fights to run the country.
