The obsession with appeasing minorities now includes Roman Catholics, who are apparently pining away for want of being able to become King of England, or to marry into the Royal family. I should have thought there were more important issues as Britain sinks into the swamp, but never mind. If we overturn the Act of Settlement then it seems to make sense to go the whole hog, and restore the Stuart (Catholic) line to the throne, from which it was debarred in 1701. This, as my colleague Mandrake discloses today, means turning the Duke of Bavaria, a descendant of James II, into King Francis II. This would be but a small undertaking for a Government that has already brought Britain to its knees, and how we must look forward to it.
Cathcon not so many months ago went to a reception in the Bavarian Representation to the EU in Brussels. I was asked, what was my opinion of my queen. I said she is not my Queen, but my King is your Prince and pointed to a rather splendid portrait of Ludwig on the wall.
