British politics are kind of opaque from my POV, but honestly I don't think you can compare the Queen and the EU at all. One of them is a ceremonial figurehead with no real power and the other is actually capable of influencing laws inside the UK's borders. Even if you hate the idea of having royalty, the Queen's not really going to have much of an impact on your everyday life. There's the occasional call to get rid of the monarchy here in Canada too, but nothing ever comes of it because, to be perfectly honest, it just really doesn't matter all that much to most people.

I get why some of your people don't like the EU, and it does seem like a really dysfunctional, bloated institution, but I'm not sure how telling the rest of Europe to piss off is going to fix anything. Is it just a "national pride" thing that's driving it?
