For Queen and Country.

Courtesy of Drumlanrig, "Jim Murphy's announcement that the Government is to press ahead with the repeal of the Act of Settlement has sparked speculation that the reform could inadvertently lead to the creation of the best job in the civil service. Repealing it means having to change the statutes in 16 Commonwealth countries across the world which continue to recognise the Queen as their monarch – including the Bahamas, Barbados, Jamaica and Australia. Someone, it is noted, will have to travel there to set the whole thing up. "You could do Sydney in January, then get to the Caribbean for the spring. That's a joke," added one official."
