Making it Political: the Challenge to the Monarchy

Emily Robinson • Jul 8 2011 • Articles

Next year will be the diamond jubilee when citizens of the Commonwealth will be asked to ‘celebrate’ the fact that the Queen has been an unelected Head of State for 60 years. Republicans should seize this chance to challenge the dominant narrative of the monarchy.
