"Possibly seditious"

Somehow I'm not particularly surprised to see that the Monarchist League thinks that debating the future of the monarchy is "possibly seditious". Monarchs throughout the ages have always relied upon sheer force to prevent people from asking the obvious questions - "why you?" and "what gives you the right?" - and our local cult of royalty is simply following this tradition.

It does however provide another proof of the dubiousness of the idea of sedition, and another reason to repeal this archaic law.
