Changes To The Law Of Succession

It's good to know that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are sorted and the recession just needs another trillion quid on the bonfire and twenty thousand more regulations to solve it. Otherwise why would MPs and Our Dear Leader overseas, be bothering about the qualifications for being King or Queen (thinks, that's one job knocked off the 2 million unemployment figures)? Isn't it classic displacement activity? MPs are all claiming money for living where they don't so to distract the voters they turn on someone else.

I don't care who becomes the next or next but one or two King or Queen so long as it's not bloody Barack Obama! It would make more sense for Parliament to vote that Prime Ministers are elected, preferably as the result of a General Election by the British people, instead of inheriting the job from an increasingly undermined rival after waiting a dozen years as a result of a private agreement hammered out during a meal in an Islington restaurant. At least the monarchy is open about its recruitment policy.

It wouldn't matter if we like it or not - it's predetermined.
