Go Britain!!

Prince Charles is too Dangerous to be King:In a landmark essay MAX HASTINGS tells why this increasingly eccentric royal could imperil the monarchy
"The engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton has given the British people a welcome fillip in a chilly season. Next April’s wedding will be a big success — even if we make a mess of some things, we’re ­jolly good at royal ceremonies.

The hard part comes afterwards: as the Queen gets older, growing ­attention and speculation is focusing on the ­monarchy’s future. Opinion polls show that most British people would like William to become heir to the throne, bypassing his father, the Prince of Wales."
We already knew the guy's a total crackpot, but if there are any with lingering doubts about that, this article will finish those off for good. If he assumes the throne, the fall of the Once Great Britain will be well nigh complete. It would be enough to make me, and, I suspect, a good many British subjects in the former colonies to go the way of the good ole US of A. There's no need to bow to royality today. Hip! Hip! and Rah! Rah! be damned. I have no stake in a heritage that reveres Mad Monarchs and, alas, chopping royal heads off is so passe these days.

Want to know what I'm talking about? Read the article.
