Should the Queen call it a day?

She is 81 after all, surely she should enjoy her retirement and hand over the 'reigns' to Charles?

If she's physically and mentally capable of continuing, there's no reason why she should abdicate. If she's got her mother's longevity she may even become Europe's longest reigning monarch.

Seems to me that there is a great deal of respect for her with the exception of a noteable British Historian, who described her as an artistic phillistine. I think most people could live with that. Here in Australia, she is respected, but considered irrelevant. Benign indifference I think.

Let her carry on. Then we will have referendum on republic when she dies. How can a hereditary monarchy be compatible with modern social democracy - or modern democracy period?
