The Daemon quiz thing is no longer being hosted, so I guess this title no longer makes any sense
Also, the idea of a blog by Eamonn Dunphy is a little scary.
Meanwhile them across the water are discussing whether or not some dude should go to war. I know, I know, the war is already over but there is still a bit of trouble over in foreign, sorry, furrin lands. So British soldiers are still being shipped off to be killed only now there is whole newspaper debated over one soldier. You all know that this isn’t any old soldier though, right? I mean he is the Queen of England’s grandson and while I don’t care who he is related to the whole notion of Harry heading to war is resulting in plenty of discussion. Personally I don’t think any soldier from Britain should be in Iraq, but since they are there I’m inclined to believe that Harry, as a serving soldier, should be sent. But then I think, well, all the opposition forces will probably know he is there. And think it quite a coup to kill/kidnap/whatever someone in line for the throne. And can you imagine the British tabloids if he did end up dead?
All this proves to me is that any form of state nepotism is just plain silly. If Britain didn’t have this monarchy thing then there wouldn’t really be much of an issue now would there? Course if we still lived in the days when younger sons were there purely to be replacements and not really important, well then it wouldn’t matter. Send him off to be cannon-fodder and sure if he dies, isn’t William the one really in line for the throne.
And while I’m discussing articles I saw on the news this morning, can I just add, people are insane. Insane I tells ya.
