PR stunt for the bookies. I highly doubt Elizabeth II - a women who views her role with almost comic duty - would want to follow the footsteps of such a brilliant role-model as, err, Edward VIII.

I know it was only down to one sole moronic soul who decided that this was beyond his worth as a human being to consider comedians as actual human beings.

It could be health reasons the public doesn't know about.

The precedent if the monarch has health issues is for a regent to be appointed. I guess we could break with that tradition, but knowing the Windsor family I doubt it.

Remember "We're all in this together"?

Anyway, it's noticeable that a lot of the high tier UKIP target seats are in areas that are brown in that map: Thanet, Tendring (Clacton), east Lincolnshire, Yarmouth.  I suspect these figures might appear in a few purple leaflets.  There are some Labour targets affected too, especially in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire which seem to have taken a big hit for some reason.

John Freeman - the last survivor of the 1945 Parliament and a pioneering television presenter - has died aged 99. He was a strange man and had a strange career. He was the Labour MP for Watford between 1945 and 1955 and served as a junior minister (at the War Office) in the Attlee government, famously resigning along with Aneurin Bevan and Harold Wilson over the introduction of prescription charges. In the late 1950s and early 1960s he was one of the most prominent people on British television, and presented the groundbreaking interview programme Face to Face (famously viewers rarely saw Freeman's face during the interviews; attention was kept on the interviewee. The best known interviews were with Carl Jung, Tony Hancock and Gilbert Harding). For a time he also edited The New Statesman. In the late 1960s he was a diplomat (High Commission to India and then British Ambassador in the U.S.A) and in the 1970s and early 1980s he was a television executive (Chairman of LWT).
