The whole idea of a monarchy is ridiculous in this day and age. Good on them.

JFC how is this a story on the BBC, who gives two hoots whether they want a picture of the queen or not ?

I swear this country is becoming increasingly fascist.

I agree that this is really a non-story, but I don't get where the claims of fascism come from? Are the students fascistic because they took a /democratic/ vote to remove a monarch (who was in no way democratically elected)?
