Hello mfinley,

Might I be permitted to remind readers that we Brits are not all Royalists?

I for one regret that Oliver Cromwell did not manage to set The Commonwealth on a secure footing. But am glad that the Americans succeeded where we failed.

But I sympathise with a US citizen who commented that if the Founding Fathers had foreseen the election of Mr Trump they might have  decided to stick with King George!

Both our countries are going through difficult circumstances thanks to the election of politicians who have little regard for the conventions that make the system work e.g. that just because you have been elected you are not permitted to pass any legislation you fancy.

It's not easy being a democrat whether you live in a republic or a monarchy, Alistair.
