Constitutional Monarchy Vs. King Trump

Those of use who live under the Westminster Parliamentary System, with a monarch as the “Head of State” are probably looking at the current political circus in the U.S. with a large portion of shocked bemusement.  (This  includes every other nation in the world where English is the official language). Because the thing is, we (of The Commonwealth) can get rid of any Prime Minister who is not up to snuff in quick order (“chop-chop” as it were, but with no need for guillotines). We have something that states with presidential (as opposed to symbolic and ineffectual) heads of state do not: a mechanism called the “non-confidence vote”: It basically means that the executive branch of government can be dispatched in quick order without lengthy impeachment hearings. It can be the work of a single day in parliament: Nice and clean. No Worries: Off to the poles we go! I was previously not a great fan of the monarchy, but after nearly a full year  of watching the U.S. reality show featuring Donald Trump (wherein the president is, in the U.S. secretary of state’s Rex W. Tillerson‘s assessment, a “moron”), I am finally proud to spout out the phrase: “Long Live The Queen!”
