Effortlessly uncool.

Republic Now!

The Observer is reporting that the imminent wedding of Prince Charles to Camilla Parker-Bowles is causing a Republican surge. This can only be a good thing as far as I’m concerned. It’s about time that we ditched the monarchy and became citizens in a modern state rather than mere subjects in an outdated system which supports inherited privilege, something which is clearly unfair and, although I really don’t like the word, undemocratic. I don’t feel any particular malice towards the royal family but I do refuse to bow the knee to them and I strongly object to my taxes supporting them.

    Hear, hear! I’d like to add “off with their heads”, but I imagine that I’d end up in the Tower… 🙂
