republicans, over here!

OK, it's been 24 hours now.
Can I say it yet?
Long live the king - any king! - you must be joking. How on earth can it be the 21st century and there is still a hereditary monarchy of 'special people with the right blood' who wear crowns, live in palaces and play a formal role in politics?
I can see from other threads that others feel upset and are following it all closely. This thread is not to deny those feelings and for sure Queen E worked hard shaking hands for a long time - but to say, WTF, bring on the republic please.
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU
You have one vote. All votes are anonymous.

It's a shame to see an interesting thread disappear..
I propose we vote whether to keep the monarchy every time we elect a 'new' government, it will at least give a semblance of democracy and might sharpen the royal minds about their behaviour and usefulness.
