Does anyone else think there's a something very funny about the government bringing in a 'Royal Equality Act' for an institution as intrinsically unequal as the monarchy. I wish Tom Paine was still here to laugh along with us.

'...certain it is, that is called monarchy, always appears to me a silly, contemptible thing. I compare it to something kept behind curtain, about which there is a great deal of bustle and fuss, and a wonderful air of seeming solemnity; but when, by any accident, the curtain happens to be open, and the company see what it is, they burst into laughter.'

You can probably blame the EU Equality Laws for this, and a good thing it is to, why shouldn't a woman be first in line to the throne....my god, you men seem to think you have that right all over the land, and the law should be changed, why should I have to wait in the morning for the kharzi!!!!!
