Some light reading for Shagsack and other Republicans: Sue Townsend's two comic novels about the Royal Family being deposed and exiled to a horrible council estate, 'The Queen and I' and 'Queen Camilla'. In the second book, the Blair-ite left-wing government has turned into a totalitarian state which sends dissenters to the gulag if they so much as smoke in public, and locks unpopular people up as "terrorist suspects". Both books generate humour out of putting the ultra-posh alongside the ultra-chav. William ends up working for a scaffolder and Charles bumbles into pound shops, asking the price of things.
I hope Sue Townsend is updating the saga with a new book honing in on the "hot, posh" [well, if you say so] Pippa Middleton and the indescribably awful Beatrice & Eugenie. Not to mention Earl Spenser's numerous sprogs who all seem to be air-heads. The only problem facing the novelist would be that some of these people are so hopeless, satire is redundant. But I particularly recommend 'The Queen and I', Shaggie. Perhaps Crooked would invent a guillotine smiley if you ask him, or a little tumbril crawling across the screen? [Only joking, constable. God save the Queen!]
