On the Royal Wedding

The Royal Wedding is over, and Britain can go back to its routine celebrity obsessions and police excesses. I’ll be raising a glass to Ian Bone, whose hit “Better Dead than Wed” dates from the last royal wedding, of which I was reminded by Red Pepper magazine. Best lines:

‘We’ve got a wedding present,
On this we’re very keen,
It’s built to last for frequent use,
It’s called a guillotine.’

It’s a good day to be a republican democrat.

Turns out that the new royal couple are neck-deep in the global land grab though, of course, when William’s predecessors did it, it had a far more dignified name . More here.
