    Default New succession Law.

    How can this be enacted when we are still at war and have unhappy vassals?
    Pfft, we don't even have a basque culture.
    Completely unrealistic.

    If it's a girl it'll still need to be thrown in the Thames. Tradition and all that.

    I've always thought succession was sexist towards men...if a woman marries a prince she'll become Queen if he becomes King, but if a man marries a princess he'll never be more than a prince. How is that fair!?

    Don't worry I doubt you will ever be a prince.

    Who knows where all theses rules come from. Like religion a monarchy is like an obsessive compulsive disorder where we must carry on traditions at all cost no matter how stupid some may appear. After all if we have been doing it for this long then there must be a reason, otherwise we would be idiots.

    We are not paltry Irish, to be shrugged out of the United Kingdom on a whim. We've still much English baiting to be done.

    Also I really want the Queen to die so we can have a King on the throne again. Fingers crossed the next one won't be a Nazi sympathiser again.

    Another addition to Britain's biggest benefit scrounging family. A kicking, screaming little blood sucking parasite to eat more of the tax I pay and live a life of grotesque luxury while I work like a dog for peanuts and if I'm lucky, retire at 85 just before I die.

    I wish nothing but harm and bad luck to that family of blood sucking leeches. Divine mandate from God to bleed the taxpayer dry? Shove it up your arse.

    Same as they valiantly blew the shit out Manchester city centre, although it did get a shiny new one.
