Richard Duke of York would be the leader of the Lib Dems.

Elizabeth Duchess of Suffolk would be living in quiet splendour somewhere in the shires, hoping to God the phone didn't ring.

Thomas Stanley would be waiting in the car at the stage door, looking at a picture of his first wife, sighing softly.

John Nevill would get Northumberland to secede and declare himself King.

Love these! And Anthony on figure skates--what a plesant image to fill my dreams tonight. (Provided he doesn't have Johnny Weir's costumer.)

He could give the job to the countess of Oxford. I didn't think of that.

And Richard Nevill Earl of Salisbury would host 'Family Fortunes'!
I love the thought of Richard DoY replacing Nick Clegg - marvellous!
Hmm makes me think - Warwick would therefore probably be PM - you don't need kings after all!!!

Ragged Staff said...

That's what I've always said - if only they'd made Warwick king, none of it would have happened.

Elizabeth said...

I like the certain Republican from MA reference! What fun it would be to match up entertaining royals with current politicians!

Caroline said...

....and George, Duke of Clarence would be entering the Betty Ford Center after a desperate family intervention staged by his brothers Edward and Richard.
