More Equality in the Rules of Succession

The PM is going to tell the Commonwealth that we need to modernise the Royal rules of succession to end male primogeniture and the explicitly anti-Catholic nature of the rules. All very good in these more democratic and egalitarian times.  

It has to be said that, given it is the twenty-first century and all, perhaps Britain should choose its head of state on a more meritocratic basis rather than selecting it from the extremely narrow gene pool it does currently. Do we really still think it a good idea to have one family as the titular head of the country? If the best the supporters of the monarchical principle can come up with is that “it is good for tourism”, perhaps the Royal Family could be sponsored by the tourist industry rather than hard-pressed poor taxpayers? 

Whilst we’re at it, can we disestablish the Anglican church as the official state religion…
