An asset and not a liability

I FEEL I must reply to those persons who claim to be Republicans. If you have a Republic you need a president.

Among the inmates of the House of Commons, The House of Lords and the Welsh Assembly there is no one who is fit to be president.

I will be 75 this year and in my lifetime there have been only two Prime Ministers who worked for the benefit of the country, not simply to benefit themselves – Winston Churchill and Clement Attlee.

What this country needs is the restoration of the monarchy, a cull of politicians, and the political boundaries to be re-drawn to coincide with the geographical boundaries. Wales has twenty two local authorities, thus needs only twenty two MPs/ twenty two AMs. All politicians should be aged over 60, to have been employed in proper jobs. Any new laws would be proposed and seconded by allowing all MPs to vote on it. Said law would then be subject to the same procedure in the House of Lords.

Any proposed new law would have to be submitted to the Queen for approval.

The Queen and the Royal Family are an asset to this country not a liability.

Maybe I should qualify my previous question 'WHY'. Just because other countries have presidents does not necessarily mean we would have to follow suit like sheep. Look at Russia and see how happy they are with their president and at the dirty tricks that he, and the other rulers have played on the people of their own country. He is a liability not an asset. This is not an isolated case.
In my book, an properly constituted prime minister is all that is required with no trimmings. and complete dedication to the aspirations of the people. We should have achieved much,much more in the past few decades but have not. If we change our constitution let's do it once and do it right.
