'The influence of the Crown has increased, is increasing, and ought to be diminished.'

No, really. Amusing as it is to watch this prat making an arse of himself on issues which should be none of his business, it is seriously inappropriate that senior royals should start taking public political stands (at least until we get a written constitution which stipulates that they are irrelevant). Remember Edward VIII.

Of course this goes double at a time when the executive branch is bidding for absolute power in the name of the "royal prerogative".

Chris, you know I'm a Yorkshire Ranter. No bishop, no king!
