Fabian Fatwa

Propeller-Head Wonk Watch: The Fabian Society was in its early days a band of elitist left-wing eugenecists who advocated sterilising the working classes for their own good, but things have moved on. Now they are a bunch of elitist middle-class do-gooders who advocate policies for the under-classes’ own good.

They have policy for every class and the latest one is for the upper class, namely our future King Charles. “Religion and the British state: a new settlement” advocates a coronation ceremony which symbolises Britain as a multi-faith society in all its colour and flummery, reflecting Prince Charles’ wish to be regarded as a ‘defender of faith’.

It goes on to recommend repeal of the blasphemy laws – so up yours Allah! And bugger off Buddha, shine on Reverend Moon etc… Hmm not sure about this.

It has some sensible ideas about treating faiths equally and ending the anti-Catholic bigotry that is enshrined in British law – in particular the ban on the head-of-state marrying a Catholic / my daughter. Its pretty short and written by Sunder Katawala – a wonk/journalist with a knack for tackling topical issues, not necessarily deeply, but always with an eye on getting press coverage. Read it here – its short.
