So this is about the UK but Dutch people use the same arguments in support of monarchy as a state institution. (Gee, I wonder why? It couldn't possibly be because there are no valid arguments--political, moral, social, historical or secular--to keep the monarchy alive in the 21st century, of course, because it is just ~so romantic~.)

Dear UK,

Instead of trying to mould an antiquated system into something which fits into the modern world a tiny bit better, how about you (and we--and the relevant rest of the world)... GET RID OF IT?

With an exasperated lack of love,
A republican

[ETA] 1. To fix that sentence, because it was making English syntax cry.
2. To add that there was a correspondent making a republican argument one of our public radio stations. Oh. my. god. (And now you know I'm only half-joking about any and all employees/guests of/on the publics having to have proper, pro-monarchy sentiments.)
