Royal protection

A certain TV channel is polling its viewers to see if they think the Home Secretary, David Blunkett, should resign as a result of the security breach at Windsor.

Such an authoritarian, populist and arbitrary official should be supported at all costs. Otherwise, we'd get a limp-wristed, namby pamby replacement like the late Woy Jenkins. What's the betting that any successor would give us holidays or hospital for burglars, prison for the sick (see 1984), compulsory homosexuality and unfettered immigration to our racially pure Airstrip One?

Several people have made the point that if the gatecrasher had been a real terrorist and bumped off all the royals present, we'd get Edward and Sophie instead of Phil & Brenda. Well, what's wrong with that? They’re a lovely couple.

Still, it might hasten the end of the monarchy. It's an ill wind...
