    Gordon Brown pledges to end 'discrimination' in Royal succession

    link

    The Prime Minister admitted the centuries-old laws, which give men a greater claim to the throne than their older sisters and prevent those in the line of succession from marrying Catholics, are a source of controversy.

    But he said the public expects such prejudice to be removed in the 21st century, and insisted the historic moves would not affect the position of the monarchy or lead to the disestablishment of the Church of England.
    Nice to see a move to reverse the anti-Catholic bigotry that has been rife in English-speaking countries for centuries. It is only a step, but a welcome one.

    If Camilla is a Catholic; I'll cry in my pillow. The Witch can sit on the throne now?

    Brown has bigger issues than a stupid law ... leave it be

    Camillia is a whore who bumped uglies with a married monarch. If she sits on the thrown, England will be disgraced.

    I'd sooner vote for a republic than allow her on the throne with the title Queen. Abdicate, Charles. Abdicate.
    No one wants you or your ugly whore on the throne

    I have heard that Charles has been repeatedly been asked to step aside and allow William to assume the thrown.

    He has reportedly, and Charles has refused.
    The Queen has refused to step down to Charles as well saying it is a 'job for life'
    Bless her, I hope she outlives Charles

    Personally since the King/Queen of England is only there to look good for the cameras nowadays, im glad that Catholics/ and gender equality for the the throne will be taken on board.

    If only we had a hot queen.

    So, it is ok to leave in place an outdated, BIGOTED law? It needs to go.
