I went to bed last night to the breaking news that Prime Minister Brown has been in discussions with Buckingham Palace in relation to Succession in the British Monarchy – matters such as the Monarch not being allowed to marry a Catholic, males bring favoured over females etc.
All good and proper and reflective of the current Monarch’s incredible knack of adapting to a changing world. If only Mr Brown was as good.
Of course the timing stinks – I am sure it’s an attempt to show how the Prime Minister can single-handedly save the global economy and deal with domestic issues at the same time.
Would be nice if we could start discussing the succession at No 10 Downing Street.
