It is not silver bullet to our ills
I WOULD like to thank J Knapp for the entertaining reply to my letter. I do not deny that the majority of the British public support the monarchy. My letter to Mr Bradshaw was to show by using actual evidence, as opposed to bluster, that there is scant proof that the monarchy promotes tourism. Evidence which J Knapp chose to ignore out of hand.
So the Queen is recognised? It seems to do us little good.
Other countries without monarchies are much happier statistically, far more visited and far more unified than ours.
Far from being a figure of unity, the Scots now want a referendum on independence and if that is successful one about becoming a republic.

If we continue to hold the monarchy up as a silver bullet to all of our problems and any calls of reform, sooner or later we won't be admired around the world, we will be ridiculed.
