Re: This is an attempted coup.

Whilst I don't agree with the pomp and ceremony around the monarchy, the position of a hereditary head of state does mean that we don't suffer to quite the same extent from the problems of short-termism that having an elected president presents (looks over there...)

What we'd end up with would probably end up being more like Ireland than the duress.
