Monarchial Democracy?

Everyone's favourite remaining absolute monarch King Mswati III (International College Sherborne '86) "explains" what he means by "Monarchial Democracy"...turns out, not much. So what? Most of the world's republican governments also call themselves "democracies" while pretty much doing what they want, though unlike Swaziland allowing the visible leadership to change from time to time. This makes it easier to convince "the people" (whatever that is) that they are in charge.
