Abolishing the Monarchy Has Already Occurred in the UK (1649-1660)


The British institution of an absolute monarchy ended with the execution of Charles I for Treason against Parliament and the British people. This situation came about through three English Civil Wars (1642-1651) fought between Parliament and the Royalist forces of Charles I. This was to decide who held the power and the right to govern in Britain – the common people as represented by an elected Parliament, or an unelected absolute monarchy. In 1651, a young Charles II was exiled to France with the final defeat of Royalist forces. The Rump Parliament ruled the first British Republic from 1649-1653, with Oliver Cromwell directing political affairs between 1653-1658. In 1657, Parliament offered Cromwell the Crown – but he refused as he believed in the abolition of the monarchy. Instead, in that year he was made ‘Lord Protector’, a post which was passed to his son – Richard Cromwell – upon Oliver Cromwell’s death in 1658. Richard Cromwell was illegally over-thrown in 1660 and Charles I reinstated by reactionary elements within Parliament. The reestablishment of the British monarchy betrayed the ‘English Revolution’, and as an act of counter-revolution was unlawful and illegal. Therefore, the British monarchy has already been historically abolished, and those ‘royal’ parasites that currently live off the State are doing so under false pretenses. It is no longer a matter of ‘abolishing’ the monarchy as such a political act has already been achieved in the UK through years of bloodshed. In this regard, the British people have already paid te price for getting rid of these royal parasites from their land, but are currently being forced to endure their presence as if nothing of historical relevance has ever happened to change the situation. What needs to happen is that Parliament must recognise its own decisions made between 1649-1660 – and not bend a knee to an ‘imaginary’ royalty which consist of dubious individuals whose ancestors invented titles for themselves and took on airs and graces.
