 Straw Poll
Topic Originator: hurricane_jimmy

In the case of an Independent Scotland, should the nation be Governed as a Constitutional Monarchy or as a form of Republic?

If we can, one word answers. But short explanations after are cool, ken?

Republic.

I'd be happy with the Irish-style system and would hope that we would look at a regional/local government system such as the läns in Sweden or länder in Germany that can set local tax rates and have these aligned with re-regionalised Police, Fire, NHS etc...

To begin with, constitutional.
Referendum at a later date to decide if we need a monarch.

I nominate Salmond as El Presidento for life.
A suitable title for a banana republic.

Guillotines? Tumbrils?
Better nip this in the bud..a bit of hanging drawing and quartering should dim this republican fervour.

Keep the monarchy for a while just until they get used to the fact that their days are numbered.

When we eventually decide to become a republic then live tv coverage at Balmoral when the Flemings of Rosyth vans roll up.
