JEREMY CORBYN: Britain should ABOLISH the Monarchy when the Queen dies

JEREMY Corbyn has said that the Monarchy should be abolished when the Queen dies.

The hard left Labour leader revealed both he and some Labour MPs would prefer it if the monarchy was abolished.

In the controversial interview, Mr Corbyn said: “I think it’s time that we just moved on.”

“When the Queen completes her reign, wouldn’t that be an appropriate time to call it a day and have an elected Head of State?” asked Mr Corbyn.

“A large majority of Labour MPs would like to see a change in the attitude of the monarchy and the way the Royal Family operates.”

Corbyn, who was a backbench MP when he made the comments on GMTV in 2001 – revealed that Republicans were a ‘minority’ in the Labour Party.

He predicted the public mood would shift as “public opinion moves more in favour of a complete democracy”.

Eighteen years later, Mr Corbyn’s predictions failed to come true. Earlier this year it was revealed that 65% of Brits think that the UK should keep the monarchy and Only 19% wanted Britain to become a republic.

27% thought that the Monarchy was a ‘meaningless institution’ and 65% thought there was still a place for the Monarchy in modern Britain. 70% thought that Britain was perceived more positively abroad due to the Royal Family.

During the 2019 Election campaign, Mr Corbyn lied about watching the Queen’s speech on Christmas day – as MILLIONS of working-class patriots do at 3pm.

ITV News anchor Julie Etchingham asked the Labour boss if he watches the Queen’s speech.

To which Mr Corbyn said: “It’s on the morning, usually we have it on.” (It’s aired at at 3pm on both BBC One and ITV)

When corrected and pressed for an answer, he added: “We don’t watch television very much on Christmas Day.

“There is lots… Lots to do… I enjoy the presence of my family and friends around Christmas.

“Obviously, like everybody else does, and, I also visit the homeless shelter, either on Christmas Day, or the day before, to talk to, and listen to people’s lives, about how they could be made better with a government that cared for them.”
