    Far too much ponciness about the royalists for me...and anyone who decides to slot their own monarch is fine in my book!

    Commonwealth forces any day for me!

    I am republican by sentiment and my head other than spherical, so it's a "neither" for me.

    Back in the day it would have been for Parliament.
    No Divine King for me.

    Today though, it'd be other way around.

    I tend to go along with Owen.

    In the days of the Charles I there were the haves and the have nots, the have nots being in the very large majority. I would have been for Parliament and do away with the divine right of kings.

    Now I would back Monarchy as things have changed over the years.

    I am a Monarchist at heart (voted against the Republic in the Referendum), but in a final power play, the people must prevail.

    Odd one, because ever since we've been a republic with a royal as head of state and called it a constituonal monarchy.

    I voted neither, but at a push would go for both...

    Being an Irishman I've no love for Cromwell so I'll side with the royalists!

    In the 1640s it would have been Parliament: a Cromwell's far better than a Stuart. Nowadays, I'd lean towards the other side as the German replacement has been a lot more reliable.
