About this deal

Gambia abolished its monarchy in 1970 after a referendum in favour, while Sierra Leone became a republic in 1971, as did Sri Lanka in 1972, Malta in 1974, Trinidad and Tobago in 1976, and Fiji became a republic in 1987, thanks to two military coups by Sitiveni Rabuka.

The incorrect figure, thrown about to somehow justify a corrupt and rotten edifice, would be just 0. After both King's deaths, both kingdoms were incorporated into the new Republic of independent Senegal which gained its independence in 1960. The monarchy of Madagascar, known as the Merina Kingdom, came to an end in 1897 when France made it a colony and overthrew Queen Ranavalona III.

If you are already a republican this will reaffirm that and will open your eyes to the numerous pit falls we have in the current system. He asks for reasons why they should remain in place – and finds a paucity of intellectual responses. They say Britain should be proud to have the mother of parliaments, to be a shining beacon of democracy and an example to other nations.

He highlights some quite frankly horrifying abuses of tax and other legal loopholes that are open to our royals, and establishment cover-ups that, quite frankly, should have been stopped decades ago. The monarchy of Portugal was also overthrown in 1910 (5 October), two years after the assassination of King Carlos I, ending the reign of Manuel II, who died in exile in England (1932), without issue.Which brings us back to the most important principle in the argument for reviving the republican movement. The monarchy of Egypt was abolished in 1953, after the revolution of 1952, which caused King Farouk I to abdicate in favor of his infant son Fuad II. Whether you're in favour of abolition or a more slimmed-down monarchy in keeping with modern Britain, Graham Smith puts the case for reform eloquently and forcefully. The " Prince of Spain" became king at Franco's death in 1975, and during the Spanish transition to democracy, the Spanish constitution of 1978 put the monarchy on a new constitutional basis.
