Description

And the backend of the book title is also covered with process of removal of the monarchy and how a republican replacement can be introduced.

I intend to try recommending it to reflexively pro-monarchy people who might be intrigued by the uncompromising title. No self-respecting country should base it’s governing system on how many tourists it is likely to attract. With accurate statistics, primary source material and interviews where he and his team have faced up to the relevant authorities and gleaned the truth out of them, Smith demonstrates how all the classic excuses for keeping the monarchy are not just mistaken - they're plain wrong.Abolish The Monarchy renews and informs the debate, eviscerating the nonsensical claims of the royalists and setting the tone for a full-throated challenge to the monarchy. While Nairn's book is dense, academic, and fatalistic (still great though), Smith's is accessible, journalistic, and optimistic.

There is a growing appetite for answers to the questions that are raised when people turn away from the monarchy: what’s the alternative, how do I talk about this issue with other people, what are the facts I need to know about the monarchy, and can we really get rid of it? Reading this book will give you the confidence to speak up, and to understand that we, the British people, (and I must say, those in the land of my parents), deserve a fairer society.At just over 200-page the shortest polemic which effectively dismisses all the arguments for the monarchy. This book, written by Smith in the lead-up to that coronation, lays out concisely and with great precision his argument for abolition of the British monarchy, and how a republican system of government could work in Britain. There is no reference to Thomas Hobbes or Edmund Burke, let alone other, less famous, theorists of monarchy. Whether you're in favour of abolition or a more slimmed-down monarchy in keeping with modern Britain, Graham Smith puts the case for reform eloquently and forcefully.
