Catholics and Kings

It's simply amazing some of the things that politicians comeup with. We've had reports that the government want to change the rules about Catholics being able to become the Monarch and also that first born daughters would inherit, not just first sons as at present.

But as The Anglo Saxon Chronicle points out, it doesn't actually work like that. The government in Westminster cannot change that law.

For they have to ask all of the other countries (some 17 at the moment, isn't it?) where the Queen is indeed Queen as well.

So not only are they proposing this in their fourth term (yeah, right, like that's going to happen), they can't even do it anyway.
