5.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing outbreak of sanity. 24 Dec 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Willie Hamilton ploughed a lonely furrow in the late 1960s and 1970s.He was almost alone in being publicly anti-monarchist in an era when public discussion of the Monarchy in Britain was akin to worship,not journalism.I can remember seeing TV coverage of Princess Anne's wedding 1n 1973 which,even to my 9 year old mind,seemed mind-bendingly servile.
Mr.Hamilton was a godsend for a long-suffering minority of Britain's population.His questioning,not just of the financing of the Monarchy,but it's right to exist in a democratic society,was indeed a breath of fresh air.
MQAI is obviously a bit dated,but it's arguments haven't gone away in the last 40 years

5.0 out of 5 stars Republicans Unite. 29 Sep 2013

A bit dated , of course, but very little has changed. An eye opener. We are being quietly ripped off, but very few realise it.

5.0 out of 5 stars BELATED THUMBS UP FOR WILLIE 6 July 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I read some of the reviews about this book, reviews written by the absurd supporters of monarchy; they found Willie wanting in his reverence for the Royals. Willie is mainly complaining about the money that the Royals manage to squander, while noting how they got hold of their ill-gotten gains in the first place. Of course times, events and laws have moved on since his complaints, but the Royals are still in place and they are still squandering their ill-gotten gains. What Willie missed is the chance to expose the nonsense that supports a monarchy, namely that every human being is born the same way, to exist for a short time and then to die. This includes the Royals whose dynasty originated before the age of exposure of fraud. The people who created the nonsense of monarchy claimed to be servants of a god, a god that has been exposed as nothing more than the creation of other human beings. (I do not mean to imply that we can now satisfactorily explain the Origin of the Big Bang, I mean to say that the god of the Royals is a fake, just like the Royals who are nothing more than the inheritors of a chain of murderous butchers, sadists, and architects of crimes against humanity.) Willie isn't exactly that blunt, and he did not go to the next step by promoting a negative written constitution to take their place. (A negative constitution telling the governmental servants of The People what they cannot do.) But you were unique for your time Willie, and you did well. I appreciate your book.
