Who is they?
Anyway, if royalty was abolished queenie et so would still be rich. They would enjoy a great life away from public service, boring meetings, meet and greets with foreign despots, and visiting god awful places.
Because some people are stupid it would seem like a good idea.
But they are no doubt the stupids who want referendums but only if they can decide the outcome.
Some people want an inquest, referendum or debate on everything.
Spending other people's money is something some people specialise in.
As for a referendum on the royals, another daft idea that would no doubt appeal to the needy, greedy, envious and stupid.
