Stealth Republic?

The institution of the monarchy has long been in decline.  Yet almost all the powers that be at least pay lip-service to it.

Yet while claiming to support it, they’re dismantling it by stealth.  Blair killed off royal behaviour, now Cameron changes how we select them.  Clearly royal traditions have no value, so what’s left?  Apart from the Queen herself, who is from a different generation to our modern ringmasters.  It’s obviously a joke, but I don’t think I get it.

How many more changes before we can nominate someone like Abdul Arain for the job of monarch?
