“Technically it is feasible, politically, it is not....”

I agree with this statement, but...the point is that the difference between a Republic and a Democracy. Here in the States, the President can’t remove the House or the Senate or the Supreme court, but they can remove the President. The Queen or leader of another country can remove their parliments and install their own people. As you stated “politically”....it would be a disaster, but it has been done in the past. Look at Chavez.

Of course, Britain’s Parliament is the only body with the authority to create new laws and raise taxes. If the Queen did use her theoretical powers to try and rule by divine right, the government would come to a screeching halt through lack of funds....

... Mind you, considering current events, we might see that anyway sooner or later...
