What do you think?

Republic has a lot of experience making the case for the abolition of the monarchy - and now we want your help as we look at updating our arguments.

We'll only win our campaign with clear and concise points about why a republic matters, why the monarchy is bad for Britain and why we need change.

In 2017 we’re working on developing our arguments - making sure we have the tools to defeat the monarchy.

Throughout the year we'll be setting out our case, and inviting you to have your say, point by point.

Throughout 2017 we'll be writing up our arguments and posting them here, so you can get involved in shaping the campaign.

With the right funding and resources we can take these arguments out to millions of people through the media, online and with our local campaigns. 

Help us make the republican movement bigger and bolder today.

What about the Lords?
