Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.

Many thanks for your understanding.
The Royal Wedding has now been postponed until Saturday, so that Charlie can go to the Pope’s funeral on Friday. This is clearly the right thing to do, as it will finally show Charles as putting State before self, which is the main thing he’s been criticised for not doing in recent times. However, because they chose to precede this announcement with this one yesterday, it just makes the wedding look even more of a shambles. But the lastest annoucement is certainly good news.
It all sorts the week out too: Today we’ll have the Westminster service and the lying in state of the Pope, tomorrow will be the calling of the General Election, Wednesday will be final PMQs, Thursday will be the dissolution of Parliament, Friday will be the Pope’s funeral, and Saturday will be the Royal Wedding. A busy, but well co-ordinated, week.
