Cameron's Can of Worms

Charles Moore eloquently dissects the problems inherent in trying to "reform" the succession rules to the British and Commonwealth throne to bring them in line with modern ideas of "equality." David Cameron and other backers of these changes have really not thought them through. Meanwhile, New Zealand's new opposition leader wants to ditch the flag and the Crown altogether, which he seems to think makes him extremely daring and clever. Hopefully Kiwis will not buy it.

His comments are interesting given that he himself is a Catholic convert from Anglicanism. However he's surely wrong in asserting that Catholics "form the religious majority in Australia and Canada".
