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.'
