A Right Royal Farce.

So, 1600 troops leave Iraq and are replaced by a member of the royal family. Now I'm no expect in either mathematics or the military, but by my calculations all we need is three and a half more Royals to cover the whole of Basra.

I'm sure nothing would strike fear into the hearts of Iraqi insurgents like a cavalry charge led by the British Sports Personality of the Year. Or maybe Charles could give a speech on organic farming methods and bore them to death...

Harry's a nice young bloke and will soon have the Imams and Ayatollahs playing drinking games with bottles of Absolut rather than sawing peoples' heads orf with breadknives.

No, for sheer 'awe and terror' we'll have to send HRH Princess Michael of Kent. I suggest she advances towards Amara mopping up pockets of 'gifts' on the way, supported on the flank by the 34th (Ladies in Waiting) Arm'd Brigade with Logistics support from the La Caprice Gay Waiters (Kensington) Battlegroup.

Good God, man...! A war crime, surely....?

Actually, I have a lot of time for her, being the only Royal (yes, well, of a sort) to prefer cats to dogs...
