A PARLIAMENT CAN'T LOVE YOU BACK:

Republicanism, the morning after: Has the end of the monarchy now slipped out of sight? (David Allen Green, 30 April 2011, New Statesman)

The monarchy looks like it is here to stay a while longer.

The wonderful -- and popular -- spectacle of yesterday's wedding of William and Catherine reminded all republicans that there is a genuine and deep domestic regard for the royal family.

If the sentiments manifested yesterday continue, only a dedicated anti-monarchist would campaign to deprive the British people of the prospect of having their Queen Kate.


Reform ought to reverse directions, giving the Lords and the King increased veto power over the Commons.
