This is a good idea . In any top public service job, there should be some kind of performance appraisal.Maybe every two or five years. Whether it should be a straight up referendum or not is another matter. And how to replace them if they fail?lpm wrote: ↑Tue Feb 09, 2021 1:49 pmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_r ... _net_worth
Outside Europe the people who seized oil and self-declared themselves monarchs are all top.
In Europe Wikipedia has Liechtenstein bloke top, Luxembourg second.
Spain 3rd, Monaco 4th.
Elizabeth Windsor is only 5th, Charles Windsor 6th (if combined they'd beat Monaco).
The wealth tax should sort this out. Leave the constitutional monarch with nothing, but pay them a fair whack for their charity, ambassadorial and government work.
Top charity CEO gets £240k a year
Top ambassador gets £185k a year
Prime Minister gets £160k a year
Assuming a third of time on each, that averages to about £200k a year. Seems a reasonable salary for a head of state and will leave Elizabeth Windsor in the best paid 0.5% in the country. Chuck in part time use of Chequers, shared with the PM. Chuck in a good travel allowance and maybe even a wardrobe allowance for her fancy dress. Chuck in free banquets whenever another head of state is in town.
I'd take the job for that. It is discriminatory against me that I am denied the chance to apply for this job merely on the basis of my birth circumstances.
Interestingly Canada's Governor General recently resigned due to poor job performance. It was public pressure/embarassment rather than any formal mechanism.
