Republicans have held a position similar to communists because the
republican movement (still) consists of Tony Benn MP, who is slightly
to the left wing. He has been advocating a British republic for
donkeys years. I've never seen anyone else broadcasting similar
sentiments in earnest -- I don't believe this is the result of a news
blackout, so much as the fact that no one else really gives a flying
fuck. When people talk about abolishing the monarchy, they mean making
the Queen ride around on a bicycle, like in Holland.
