apparently there's a proposal to change the Act of Settlement to allow left-footers and - shock, horror - first born women to ascend to the throne
reasonable enough, no? Discrimination on religious grounds is surely not acceptable in the 21st century? The article states:
Even the Queen is said to be 'sanguine' about suggestions of reform.
Sigh. Mail readers get outraged. Maybe they think 'sanguine' means 'right pissed off'.
OH MY GOD, Henry the 8th will be turning in his grave. How can we let this Scottish unelected Goverment go ahead and do this to us, we are not a Catholic Ruled Country and should stay that way.

Sorry, is this 2008 or 1608?
This may be the start of the next rise of another Cromwell.

Don't tell me...Gordon brown aims to be Lord Protector.
All forgiven Henry VIII come back and Haunts these reformers. This is a Disgrace.

Why is it a disgrace. Why should we give a toss? The Queen doesn't!
And of course the Queen has absolutely no say in this at all.

SHE DOESN'T CARE. SHE'S SANGUINE ABOUT IT. FFS.
There is also a new clause which states that if you have the first name of Gordon and you happen to be Prime Minister then you automatically succeed to the throne upon the death of the Monarch.
