All hail King Mike!
The Snook and I watched a fascinating program last night called Britain’s Real Monarch. While researching a previous documentary, Tony Robinson discovered evidence that Edward IV was illegitimate, and thus every British monarch for the past 500 years has been ineligible for the throne. The goal of the program was to figure out just who exactly *should* be the current monarch. We were only mildly interested until we realized that Tony’s search was taking him to… Australia. That’s right, the true King of England is a fair dinkum Aussie battler. (Okay, so he’s really a Pom and a Lord, but he lives here now and barracked for Australia during the Ashes.) What’s more – he’s a Republican! It was too funny.
