Even Republic's "Not My King" signage is contradictory for me, since the wording indicates that while Charles may not be their king he is, nevertheless, a king. Abolish The Monarchy renews and informs the debate, eviscerating the nonsensical claims of the royalists and setting the tone for a full-throated challenge to the monarchy. After ceding sovereignty of the Manu'a islands of modern-day American Samoa to the United States in 1904, the last King of Manu'a, Tui Manu'a Elisara, died on 2 July 1909.

Elizabeth was not doing the good work I thought she was, and in all this time, the royal family have definitely wielded power. This is the crux of the matter: it is likely that those who truly want to keep the monarchy are actually now in the minority.As the country faces a growing number of crises we’re heading for a crisis of confidence in our constitution, our head of state and the whole political system.
