Matt The Badsnake sent me that picture, by the way. It is a real thing. Safety!
"why is it that people in our country can not understand that it is not for them to question our prince and certainly not our queen who is the head of state by right of blood. there is a limit to liberalism and there is a line none of us should cross and that line is our royal family," Writes a lunatic called journals.aol.co.uk/faridetessami, which is a stupid name, in The Guardian's letters page today.
"my word," screams The Brave Captain, who sent it me, "do people still use the right of blood as a serious argument? i suppose it's better than 'appointed by god' but only just. the queen's 'right of blood' doesn't stretch back too far. there was the messy abdication business with that nazi couple and before that we had hanovers, oranges, stuarts, protectorates, king arthur, king rollo, king crimson, queen latifah and king doc. so if we got rid of this queen and installed mothboy and his dark brood on the throne, would journals.aol.co.uk/faridetessami still see fit to bow and scrape and talk about rights of blood?
i suppose if he played bass at his coronation everybody would."
Which is true. Mof kills bass dead.
