I'm not English, my family hasn't been since the Revolution. However, I have more than my share of opinion about the Royal Family and their toe-sucking camera-snubbing royal-wedding ways.
Yet, lo. Someone in the UK House of Commons has suggested the succession laws be changed so a girl child of Kate Middleton and Prince William might have an equal right to the throne.
This is madness. MADNESS I TELL YOU! Have they never SEEN Henry V? The inheritance from the female is always contentious.
Below - The Salic Law Speech. If your day hasn't been sufficiently gorgeous I recommend you spend all seven minutes on this clip, lusting after Kenneth Branagh lounging his lipless self on the throne.
But the point is, the lawmakers feel this would modernize the monarchy. Does anyone want a modern monarchy? No! We want one based on outrageous antiquated traditions. The Royals can't change the rules after thousands of years.
Think of the consequences. This could bring down the House of Windsor. One or two generations from now some distant Hapsburg ancestor could come in and claim the throne.
Write your MPs, you subjects. Stop this before it's too late.
