I would like to express my opinions about the monarchy or to call for the UK to be a Republic without the risk of prosecution. I'm not sure that I would actually call for us to be a Republic but it seems very unfair that an institution that I and generations of my ancestors have funded cannot be questioned, challenged or abolished.

Why is this idea important?

I would like to live in a society where everyone is equal. The case of the Monarchy is not in keeping with this. The cost of keeping the Royal Family is enormous, both in the overt figures involved and the hidden costs such as security.

We need to be able to have a grown up debate about the pro's and cons of keeping them as opposed to having a Republic.
