FIFTEEN YEARS

Interesting number : I’ve been suggesting 15 years as the limit for people working at the BBC

Today it is being suggested as the length that a person can sit in the House of Lords.

I would do away with the monarchy and have a President who serves for 15 years. After this time he would become the Vice president whose only purpose would be to give advice to the President WHEN asked to by the latter. Even older ex-Presidents could be consulted by the President with regard to a situation that arose during that person’s presidency.

This would do away with the ‘Bollocks’ that we keep hearing from the monarchists about “isn’t she so wonderful, she has all that knowledge from being queen for so many years”. She hasn’t even any recognised qualifications and I am not aware that she has ever sat or passed an Exam.

In office, the President could be served by an Assistant President.
