Philobiblon: A constitutional assumption

A constitutional assumption

The BBC is this morning reporting on both Radios 4 and 5 news on Prince William starting at Sandhurst, describing him as "the man who will one day be head of Britain's armed forces". Surely that is making a rather large assumption about what Britain's constitution might be in 40-plus years' time?

Hear hear!

Though I'm sure there's some old law that makes it treason if the BBC suggests anything else...

Natalie, you're not already building barricades in the streets, are you?

No, not on this issue anyway - I'm a republican, although it is certainly not the biggest issue in British politics. But while-ever you have "right of birth" as the ranking principle at the top of society, it can't be healthy.
