The nation’s groaning with debt caused by unsustainable levels of welfare and hand-outs; no party has a credible program, least of all British Labour which has governed since 1997; Prime Minister Cameron raises phoniness to a new level; and Labour Leader Miliband is utterly unconvincing, just returning atavistically to vague Leftist roots.
But we’re having a lovely royal wedding. Royal wedding – there’s a triumph of hope over experience.
It gets worse.
Now a poll shows they prefer William as king – a spoilt princeling if ever there was one – over Charles.
I saw Charles recently on a TV documentary being asked about his support for environmental causes. He said “Well, who will speak for nature?” In my view, the question of the age.
Until we amend the constitution to make the Governor-General head of state (that is, the minimalist of minimalist models) I could live with Charles as king. But never the princeling son.
