How To Turn Off Royal Baby Coverage

Are you sick of all the coverage about the royal baby about to be born in London?

The Guardian newspaper will help you turn off all the news about Prince WilliamKate Middleton and royal baby coverage.

Simply click the “Not a royalist” button in the upper right hand corner of the Guardian website to read the news in peace. Unfortunately, they have not developed a similar button for your Facebook and Twitter feeds.

Over at Gawker, writer Hamilton Nolan has taken the debate a step beyond that, urging England to Imprison the Royal Family and Abolish the Monarchy. Check it out:

The persistence of the Royal Family, and the worshipful attention that it draws from the British public, is the sort of primitive superstitious voodoo that puts to shame any of the animist rituals that the colonial British would have derided as uncivilized.

The Royal Family is more than an international embarrassment, though; it is a crime against the British public. It represents the taking of precious public resources for the most undemocratic, elitist, and unproductive use. It is akin to taxing the American public to support the Kardashian family.
