End of the monarchy?

The articles about the monarchy in the September issue are interesting. On the one hand, the Queen is a good monarch because she says little and does nothing of importance. On the other hand, Prince Charles will be a bad monarch because he says a lot and might do things. So, one might ask what is the purpose of a monarch who “hears all, sees all and says nowt?” Is she really needed? Arguably not and it would make little difference to the UK if she and her dynasty were abolished. That seems to me to be no better, and may even be worse, than a monarch who is prepared to get involved. Both arguments seem to be equally strong for abolishing the monarchy. Perhaps when Elizabeth II dies, we should grasp the nettle. Ronald Havenhand, Nantwich

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s October issue: Andrew Adonis, Steve Richards, Gaby Hinsliff, Rachel Sylvester and Jennifer Williams look at the idea that leadership is the only thing that matters when it comes to elections. Adonis leads the cover package arguing exactly that point and outlining his ratings of the leaders who have competed every election in the UK and the United States since 1944—Richards offers a rebuttal. Hinsliff, Sylvester and Williams profile three potential leaders in waiting—Amber Rudd, Jo Swinson and Angela Rayner. Elsewhere in the issue we map out the potential road the UK might travel down to stay in the European Union and explore the relationship between UN Secretary General António Guterres and Donald Trump as the two prepare to meet at the UN. Also in this issue: Philip Collins on the similarities between Britain’s Brexiteers and the Gaullists of yesteryear, John Bercow explains how parliament could function better and our “View from” comes from Nairobi, where the recent election result has been annulled.
