Closed petition Allow for a public referendum on the monarchy

We should have a choice as to whether to keep the royals in their current position, or to do away with the outdated view that depending on the family you are born to, means you have a right to rule over others, even if only in name.

More details

We had a referendum on Scottish independence, to leave the EU, now it’s time to have one about the monarchy.

Unlike in the EU referendum however the Government should remain neutral, and simply implement whatever the people decide.
