Dear Editor,

Regarding Henry's comments, I would like to say that it is about time we break our long standing traditional ties with the UK, having their Queen/King as Head of State. A visit every 30 years is shameful. To me, the only good thing they brought was the urgency to keep our town clean. Solomon Islanders came out in huge numbers to clean our dirty town. Apart from that, nothing, zip, zero, nil. Solo for Republic!
