THE QUEEN AND THE BRITISH MONARCHY

Questions about the queen and the British monarchy.
Should the people of Great Britain pay taxes to the Queen?
Yes - Of course, she's our Queen, our Head of State and our identity!
Only if you support the Queen as Head of State
If you like
When she really needs the money
Under no circumstances - my money's mine!
Should the Queen take an active roll in government?
I think that she needs to be much more involved in the day to day governance of Great Britain.
It depends if it's necessary
If she feels that she would like to
Only if the Prime Minister or the government ask her to.
Only in an emergency
She should stay out of government altogether
Should the Queen be or have the right to be partial in party politics?
Absolutely - She's the queen, and she should be able to give her opinion
I suppose, if she did it to make the country more united
If she feels it absolutely necessary, for example if one party leader is going to do something terrible.
If the people or parliament, wanting advice, asked her to state her views on a political party... and only then
As a mere figurehead, the queen should stay out of politics altogether.
What should the actual reserve powers of the Queen be?
She should have unlimited reserve powers
The queen should be able to sack parliament, government etc if she feels it's in her interests
As it is now
Very little, like in Ireland, Spain and Sweden, but she could still act in the event of an emergency
No reserve powers, like in Japan - she's a figurehead!

Yes - up to 35 only
Yes - up to 50 only
Yes - up to 65 only
Yes - up to 80 only
