    First, good job with those markups.

    Second, no--his abdication was constitutionally unprecedented, and there is significant question as to whether abdication is legal both under English law and under the general Salic law. Your argument is a bit like saying, well since people can and do murder people, it mustn't be a big deal.

    No. You're wrong. You're also a Jacobin. Probably a Bolshevik too. And a Roundhead.

    I suppose if we can't have "off with their heads" then "off with their tops" is suitable in this case. Although I'd not want to continue this pattern much

    Well, right. But as I understood, wasn't much of the crisis (and the thing requiring him to step down in the first place) related to his particular role as King, and Head of the Church of England? Would a prince or princess that was not heir apparent generate nearly as much controversy? I understand some of the second-born in other European countries have done so in modern times.

    I have no love for the Bourbon thieves, but that's not cool.

    Wasn't part of the scandal have to do with the woman he was wanting to marry having been through a divorce?

    Yes, but wasn't the same a problem with Camilla & Charles? That was overlooked

    Argument could be made that attitudes are different in Charles and Camilla's time? That being divorced is not looked down upon or seen as a threat to the monarchy as it was in George's time?

    Ms. Simpson's status as a divorcée was relevant in that His Majesty's Government would not and could not support their marriage, which is the impetus behind Edward VIII's abdication. It was the abdication itself that was the constitutional problem.

    That's actually a somewhat unfortunate image, giving the history of British colonialism...i mean, uh, what's that? Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!

    Slavery is not cool man

    Strangely the Royals are less worried about what an image such as the above one says about them and their views than they are about the pictures they are trying to ban.

    It's not strange at all. I'd say it's normal for the rich to be dumb.

    I voted Philip as well. He strikes me as someone who might accidentally flash someone in the hospital where some paparazzi will be hiding.

    Amusing that it was the kilt though. Wonder whose next. Is it going Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl?

    They should all just get it over with and do it all at once.
