Queen and Prince Charles hit by campaign petition to remove 'secretive' royal consent
The petition, listed on ActionStorm, was started by a membership-based pressure
group campaigning for the abolition of the monarchy and its replacement with a
directly elected head of state. Titled “Scrap the royals’ power
to change our laws”, the petition has so far received over 5,000 signatures.
It reads: “Prince Charles and the Queen have the power to insist
new laws are tailored to suit their private needs. This has got to stop.
New reports in The Guardian on the 28th June, show Prince Charles put pressure on
the Major government in 1993 to change new leasehold legislation, effectively
preventing his tenants from buying their homes, denying them the same rights as everyone else in the country.
