Sixty Labor MPs attend Slaming King event as ‘privileged white man’

Sixty Labor Members of Parliament (MPs) attended a ‘Work for the Republic’ event where King Charles III was criticized as a ‘privileged white man’.

As party leader Sir Keir Starmer turned away from his previous support for abolishing the monarchy, dozens of MPs at a meeting on the sidelines of his annual conference were unable to read the room proverbial now that Queen Elizabeth II’s seven-decade reign is over. .

“With the end of the reign of the late Queen, Britain faces a future with a privileged white man at the head of state for the rest of this century – at least,” said a leaflet distributed to the same assisted, according to Telegraph report.

“There is no doubt that this will only hasten calls for an end to the monarchy,” the leaflet claimed – although in fact support for the monarchy has rallied in recent days.

Polly Toynbee, a Guardian columnist and aging stalwart of the British establishment left, was one of the speakers at the event and argued for the monarch to be replaced by a so-called ceremonial president along German or Irish rather than American lines or French, although she said they could step in “in the event of a Boris Johnson-type rogue person” – likely a recipe for complaints of double standards and bias.

She also suggested that the UK – possibly the United Republic, if the event participants are successful – was not a “serious country” as long as it maintained its old monarchy, which dates back to several hundred years beyond the Act of Union between Scotland and England in 1707 in the mists of history before Scotland and England were even formed.

Little consideration seems to have been given to the fact that Western democracies, including Norway, the Netherlands and Sweden, have all maintained constitutional monarchies – and few would argue that the powerful monarchies of the Middle East, Arabia Arabia in the lead, are treated with great care. seriously by world leaders.
