Quote of the Month (August)

“Irish Tory” at the weblog Irish Tory:

The problem with most 'Constitutional Monarchs', is that they are in fact, not very 'constitutional' at all, they are absent monarchs or plastic monarchs. Kings and queens without power sidelined by bitter republicans who resent the symbolism they represent. Too many monarchs are imprisoned, imprisoned at the politicians pleasure, with the Sword of Damocles hanging over them, the slime ball politicos ready and waiting for an excuse to abolish that monarchy.
