Royalist Riot in Uganda

Police loyal to the republic and supporters of the traditional King of Buganda clashed violently in Uganda. While riots like this are perhaps not particularly constructive, I can't help wishing that monarchists in Europe demonstrated a little more militancy. There must be some sort of middle ground...

A rare event, indeed. I don't think (as you point out) that it's exactly to be applauded. But it's true that, time and time again, monarchists have lost out because their opponents were the ones who took the initiative, were better organized, more determined, etc.
