It's A Family Affair
Windsor Prepare to Pass on Public Office
The Windsor family is preparing for a new head of state for Britain according to news media reports. The current hereditary head of state, Liz Windsor, has started to hand over some of her limited workload to her son Charlie. However, the reports say that she intends to hold on to the job until death.
The purpose of the early handover to Charlie is to reduce her workload while getting the people of Britain ready for the idea of Charlie as the new head of state. Those people will have no say at all in who holds their country's chief public office, nor the date on which the change happens.
Oddly Charlie will take a pay cut of £5m when he fully takes over from his mother, as the new job pays only £13m a year plus generous expenses.

BBC Gives Up Pretence
The BBC has given up all pretence of political impartiality and has made itself a definite part of the systematic state discrimination against republicans in Britain in again celebrating the feudal institution of monarchy.
The state-sponsored broadcaster has announced a “celebration season” to mark the sixty years in which Liz Windsor has been Britain's unchallengeable feudal head of state. In a direct refutation of republican beliefs it has described this as a celebration of “all that is great about Britain“.
Adding injury to insult the state-protected media giant will insist that everybody in Britain who watches television in any form make a financial contribution to its celebration by paying the licence fee that it requires before giving Britons permission to watch TV.
Republic Chief Executive Officer Graham Smith commented that “As a public broadcaster the BBC has a duty to report and inform in an impartial and balanced way. What it must not do is celebrate a political institution that is opposed by millions of British voters”. Republic has called for a protest against the BBC outside its Portland Place HQ at 11 a.m. on 11 May.

Following the arrests that ended the protests both the Dutch police and William-Alexander Orange Nassau, the new “king” of the Dutch, conveniently apologised for the suppression of free speech
