UN referendum on the British Royal Family... Have all other pressing issues been properly addressed ..? I agree with Royal Fan noting that it would be better for UN to be dissolved as it has proven ineffectual in resolving a fair number of international issues.

The UN really doesn't have that kind of power. From what I've seen and they way they've handled things, they haven't got ANY power. What's their beef with the BRF anyway?

The world must consider if The United Nations should be kept and The UN should be scrapped off first as it does not serve the purpose of its setting up.

Now, shouldn't these people be more worried about famine in Africa rather than trying to deal with nothing of their own business. From Yahoo! : "Syria accused the UK of discriminating against Muslims and Iran complained about the UK's record on tackling sexual discrimination." ... I tend to believe that what is annoying them is the fact that a woman is ruling one of the most liberal countries in the world. The UN should start teaching a few lessons to those countries part of the jury who find the womankind inferior and don't respect human rights in their own bloody government !

I agree with all of your posts. I also must say that I don't understand why the UN appears to be so highly regarded by many (mostly left-wingers) when it includes countries with such dreadful abuses of human rights. (Who are they to sneer at Great Britain!!!) It's often spoken about in Australia as if it's the most admirable institution in the world!

Regards,
Lisa

It made The Telegraph, must be serious then!

A United Nations report says Britain should abolish its monarchy.

Britain should get rid of the monarchy, says UN - Telegraph

The UN really has nothing to do and now they want to interverne into the state matters of a country? Wonder what does Secretary Ban deal when had audience with the Queen a few days ago? Whatever matter, like human rights are fine, but advising that to abolish the very great monarchy down, is extremely nonsense and stupid. If the British people still support their Monarchy, and love Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as their Queen, then they should still keep their Monarch. it's not the matter for the UN to get around and do something ridiculous like this.

Ridiculous. I'd suggest they worry more about Africans starving, Tibetans being slaughtered into silence and Arabic women being oppressed by tyrannic war lords rather than Britain's internal affairs.

I dare the UN to call for the abolition of the monarchy in Saudi Arabia and the creation of a republic there. Why pick on the UK, where the royals are largely limited by the constitution?

A lot of the articles said that "An United Nations report" or a report from The UN Human Rights Council - is it available to the public? Does anyone have a link to the actual report instead of just newspaper articles on the subject?

I have this...
The Permanent Mission of Sri Lanka to the United Nations in Geneva wishes to contradict several inaccuracies and distortions contained in a report in the London Daily Express, which seems to have been echoed by certain other news organizations, to the effect that Sri Lanka called for the abolition of the British monarchy. There was no such call, not by Sri Lanka and not by the UN Human Rights Council. Indeed the quote cited in the Daily Express does not include such a call. It recommends only that the UK 'consider' the holding of a referendum on the desirability or otherwise of a written constitution, preferably republican, with a bill of rights

It's curious that a "recommendation" for the holding of a referendum would also state the preferred outcome!
More likely Sri Lanka's Permanent Mission in Geneva felt aggrieved about something a British diplomat said and this was their way of getting one back.

It is curious that Sri Lanka is concerned about the oppression of the British people, when they could be talking about Darfur, Myanmar, the Taliban and any number of other serious world situations. Perhaps the Sri Lankans feel confident about their ability to beat up on the figurehead of the British monarchy?

It must be very nice for the British people to know - that in the midst of the missery in this world - they are not forgotten. Sri Lanka is keeping an eye on their welfare
