** THUD **
Like Jordan's procession of husbands, perhaps?
shhh you lot, Grand designs is on
Cameron's very wise because it will divert attention away from the real issues.
Just take a look at the UK red-top papers and weep at the intellectual standard of the average Brit!
(still wondering what ** THUD ** means.....)
(Has Mike just fainted?)
Its a fairly obvious item to fix an probably takes next to no time and can be handled by the civil service so why not. Its a minor admin task so just let it flow.
He has to attend said meeting and it gives them something to talk about inside that forum. Plus it is important we get our own house in order before we talk about civil rights etc to others.
May seem a bit trivial but it is a social issue up here. Many Catholics see the ban on the heir marrying one as discriminatory. Not in itself a big issue but combined with other perceived anti catholic attitudes it adds to the social discontent felt by them. Also the issue of male primogenacy is seen by many ( religious & non religious) as outdated in the modern world.

I thought the same but apparently not. The monarch is the head of the Anglican church so they need to get the buy-in of the Commonwealth countries - I don't know why that link exisits and I do not think it is an absolute necessity but it seems to be one of those 'courtesies' that would cause diplomatic mayhem if they tried to circumvent it.
Perhaps Cameron sees this as his 'Clause 4' moment to show the party is modernising.
I don't see any need for such a small change. If you believe these things in the monarchy are wrong, then you should go the whole way and abolish it.

OK fine by me.

. . . and me.
If they did abolish the Monarchy, we could have "Land of Hope and Glory" as our National Anthem. Now that's a tune that really does make the blood run quicker!
On second thoughts, they might object to the line, "Mother of the free".
Heretic! It would be the theme to the Archers.
