Ten things to know about the next Accession and Coronation

The Constitution Unit Blog

robert.hazell.350x350com.google.Chrome.j5urj9Last month Robert Hazell and Bob Morris published two reports about the next Accession and Coronation, which were discussed in a previous blog. Along the way they gathered a lot of extra information, which has now been published on the Monarchy pages of the Constitution Unit website. The following represents a selection of the most frequently asked questions.

1. Will Prince Charles become King Charles III?

Not necessarily. He is free to choose his own regnal title. King Edward VII chose Edward as his regnal title, although hitherto he had been known by his first name of Albert. King Edward VIII also chose Edward as his regnal title, although he was known to his family and friends as David. Prince Charles’s Christian names are Charles Philip Arthur George.

Cycle Lanes On City Streets Are Bloody Dangerous

Nearly ran a scooter rider over the other day because he overtook me suddenly at the traffic lights

No Minister

Approaching Willowpark Road roundabout there was the usual, for that time of day, lengthy queue of traffic so I decided to duck down a short side street which I had coincidentally boarded in when first moving to Hastings in 1968. So I put my indicator on and after checking my rear view mirrors took the turn as soon as the car in front cleared the way – I had my indicator on for 20 or 30 seconds before making the turn.

Next thing there was a rapping on the roof of my car from a cyclist I had cut off. I never saw him and once around the corner I stopped, put my window…

“Superabundance” Review

Economist Writing Every Day

Are resources becoming scarcer as world population increases and per capita consumption increases? Are basic goods becoming more expensive relative to wages in the face of potential resource shortages? These are some of the main questions that are addressed in the just released book Superabundanceby Marian Tupy and Gale Pooley. The authors were kind enough to provide me with an advance copy, which is why I’m already able to review this book on its release date (I’m not really that fast of a reader).

The author take a very optimistic view of the issues surrounding those opening questions. Properly measured (one of the key tasks of their work), resources are becoming more abundant, not more scarce. And properly measured, almost all consumer goods are becoming cheaper relative to wages.

The authors use the approach of “time prices” throughout the book. They are not the first to use this…
