The outrageous republican Labour MP, Paul Flynn, has proposed an amendment to the Succession to the Crown Bill that would further remove the possibility of discrimination against a future king or queen:
In the event of the heir to the throne contracting a civil partnership, any progeny of that marriage by adoption or artificial insemination should qualify to inherit the throne.
Why stop there? What about the possibility of discrimination against conjoined twins, transgender persons or hermetically sealed 'bubble boys' (or is that bubble girls?). No doubt British MPs have already put a stop to this ridiculous tampering, which could lead to endless difficulties as the contents of the bill have already been approved in principle by all the independent realms of the Crown Commonwealth. There was always a danger of proceeding down this path, but now that we have, one wonders what amendments will be entertained elsewhere, especially in those realms where the monarchy is not as sacrosanct as it mostly is in the UK. This definitely has the potential to get ugly before it gets interesting.
