UN vs. Monarchy

Anyone doubting that the United Nations is a truly despicable and worthless organization need look no further than this article describing how the Orwellian UN "Human Rights Council," a body that includes representatives of the governments of those well-known havens of human rights Cuba, Saudi Arabia, and Iran, recommends that Britain hold a referendum on adopting a written constitution, "preferably republican." I hope all British patriots will unite in telling the UN panel exactly what it can do with its idiotic recommendation.

To be fair, it should be noted that the "preferably republican written constitution" recommendation came only from Sri Lanka, and that the report includes a disclaimer stating that "all conclusions and/or recommendations contained in this report reflect the position of the submitting State(s) and/or the State under review thereon. They should not be construed as endorsed by the Working Group as a whole." Still, what gives this "Working Group" the right to recommend any changes to the United Kingdom in the first place?

This is not the first time the United Nations has attempted to interfere with one of Europe's few remaining monarchies; last year another UN committee criticized the Principality of Liechtenstein for daring to maintain male-only succession.

When Sri Lanka abolished the Monarchy no referendum was held. And its history as a civil war torn republic is hardly a recommendation for that for of state.
