Tanya Gold's take on the royal family's ability to project an impression of thrift while spending vast sums of public money is, in my humble republican opinion, the most entertaining published response to the appeal court's ruling that Prince Charles's correspondence with Tony Blair's cabinet should be published. The Guardian's leader on the topic of the so-called 'black spider' memos is also a stimulating read. I suspect the attorney general has a real fight on his hands. His argument appears to be that we must not know what Prince Charles's most passionate political opinions are because he is not supposed to have political opinions, and that his correspondence must therefore be suppressed because it might compromise the public's impression of his political neutrality. Convoluted or simply deluded? You choose.
My experiments at getting this site set up to feed neatly into Twitter have been a little frustrating, but there is partial success to report. As of now, every time a new blog post or Pick of the Day are uploaded, the site will automatically send a Tweet into the Centre for Journalism account that Nick Poskitt and Becci Hughes set up for us a while back.
You can find it a www.twitter.com/cfjkent - and I've also added a menu link to it on the home page.
