What year is this?

While the US debates the issue of creationism, the UK is right up there having an important debate about the monarchy and who should ascend to the throne. Good grief, is this 1507 or 2007? Why would anyone even want a monarchy today in a modern democracy? They’re the most useless bunch out there.

More than half of 1,000 people polled said they would prefer the second-in-line to be the next to take the throne.
More people who actually like royalty, including talk of a “commoner” after the jump.

Prince William’s popularity is greatest among the younger generation, with 70 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds favouring him as the next king, compared to just 47 percent of 55- to 64-year-olds.

The groundswell of support appears to have been helped by his rekindled romance with commoner Kate Middleton.

Thank goodness reaching out to a “commoner” is relevant.
