Fuck me, no wonder we are screwed. I always believed that Royal Consent was one of those historic formalities that we all accepted because nobody believed that it really happened. Well it does. Under FOI it has been revealed that Royalty were consulted on changes to higher education, ID cards and paternity pay among other issues.
So all the talk of this country being a democracy, parliament for the people, is a fucking sham, Republic should now use this to further their campaign. The Tories are enough removed from reality in running the country let alone a bunch of parasitic leeches having to give their consent on policy.
