BBC News - David Cameron proposes changes to royal succession (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-15282940)

I am not going to argue the merits or otherwise of the proposals. But doesn't Cameron have more important things to address right now with unemployment hitting a 17 year high - why waste taxpayer's money on addressing this issue?

When will you begin to understand that politicians only job is to preserve their job and not to actually accomplish anything important?

Now think about this again...

It has been said that 'the only function of a politician is to get elected' and, unfortunately, that seems to be true.

What is far worse imffho, is that we used to also elect a few statesmen who had some consideration for the country, but now they all appear to be just politicians.

They should roll back female succession right to the very first 'royal'...

Then we could determine who really should be on the throne today.

Arise! Ethel Baggins of Scunthorpe!

Ah, but you have all missed the point here. CMD is indeed addressing the issue of unemployment...albeit not for the right age group.

This year, we had...a wedding. Readers will recall that our televison screens were suddenly saturated with an influx of the vacuous and the vapid...or..Royhalty Hexparts as they prefer to be known. After a long period of being dormant ( physically and intellectually ) they suddenly found themselves at the forefront of explaining to a rapt national audience ( excluding one or two of us that is ) all those miniscule details we were blissfully unware of regarding " The Family "...alas, having gushed forth, at some length, post wedding they entered the equivalent of post orgasmic stupor....however...next year, we have not only the :mad:Olymics but also another Royal event and thus we will once again be treated to their expertise and eloquence as they duly regurgitate all the arcane intricacies of Royal life.

Now, as Royal events tend to be be a bit limited as to their frequency, you can only imagine the despair and desperation these Hexparts must feel when non occur....but, thanks to CMD's proposition, they now have a security of employment that the rest of us can only dream about....so, jolly well done Dave for addressing this crucial issue...:ok:

He should be concentrating more on the question of who should succeed Liam Fox. :E

I don't know who Foxy has upset, but someone's trying very hard to do a hatchet job on him!
