Tanya Gold's take on the royal family's ability to project an impression of thrift while spending vast sums of public money is, in my humble republican opinion, the most entertaining published response to the appeal court's ruling that Prince Charles's correspondence with Tony Blair's cabinet should be published. The Guardian's leader on the topic of the so-called 'black spider' memos is also a stimulating read. I suspect the attorney general has a real fight on his hands. His argument appears to be that we must not know what Prince Charles's most passionate political opinions are because he is not supposed to have political opinions, and that his correspondence must therefore be suppressed because it might compromise the public's impression of his political neutrality. Convoluted or simply deluded? You choose.
This is a personal post but it would mean a lot if everyone can vote in the Kent Union leadership elections.
We know in the political world how important it is for democracy and it is the same when it comes to electing the five positions on offer for the Union.
This year there are two Medway candidates and it would be amazing if anyone can take the time to vote and make other students aware of their democratic rights.
