Article by Oliver Laughland in the Guardian about the Royal Visit to Australia

Sneering and sarcastic article by Oliver Laughland in the Guardian about the Royal Visit to Australia:

http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2014/apr/16/kate-william-and-george-welcomed-to-sydney-by-beaming-prime-minister

The most important line in the 610 words is:  "Thousands who had gathered there waited for hours..."

This tells you all you need to know about attitudes to the monarchy in Australia, and rather undermines Oliver Laughland's clever-dick faux-irony.
