The Null Device
Republicanism: it's not just for Australians anymore. Well, maybe it is, but
the Poms are making skeptical noises about the monarchy. Given that they
foot the bill for maintaining it, they arguably have more right to than the
Australians do. To be precise, it has been commented that the Royal Family
should move to more modern (and cheaper) accomodation; among the
the BBC has raised are the Millennium Dome (a silly and expensive novelty
in London) and Battersea Power Station (wasn't that meant to become the
World's Biggest Cinema or somesuch?). As far as making the royals pay
their way, there could be some ideas there. Given how the royal family is,
for the most part, the world's most popular soap opera, why not sell them to
Aaron Spelling or someone, or install webcams in Buckingham Palace and sell
advertising on the site?
