Is it time for the Brits to ditch the monarchy?

Monarch's make soldiers warry, Soldiers need to be warry, Monarchs will stay put.
 
Just think Bogsy, Her Maj has been Queen for 65 years now.
A few more years and she'll have outlasted Socialism and the Soviet Union

It's a no brainer. Spend some cash to give every MP something like Sametime Connect (like Skype but industry strength and encrypted). While Palace of Westminster is made safe, have every MP dial in to The Commons every day, and broadcast, so he/she can be seen at his "desk" "working". Any MP not broadcasting, display as "Member for eg Chiltern Hundreds Absent" so that constituents know it.

No rail fares or second residences in London, available for constituency surgery five minutes after broadcast.

Palace of Westminster becomes redundant, use it as a tourist attraction to put money into the Exchequer. Save an arm and a leg.

Committees etc? Dial in to the appropriate meeting. Jobs a good 'un.

Edit. House of Commons, welcome to the 21st Century.
Good job MPs never talk to each other or conduct any business outside the chamber.

Pity. If they did, they'd have the hardware and software to do so from hundreds of miles apart, like I did with colleagues in the USA, China, India, Hungary, etc etc
