I want to be a citizen not a subject

I saw this poster today on republic.org

The queen costs us £200,000,000 a year, for that kinda money the health service could employ 9,560 more nurses or 8,200 more police.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve nothing against the queen personally, I think she’s rather a sweet old dear and I thought maybe a compromise might be a better idea. How about 4,780 nurses and half a queen. Not sure which half we should keep though, the half we see on the stamps, I guess.

This guy says it far better than I ever could.
