A sop to the raucous lefties

Tony Blair has been gone for years now, and New Labour is dead and all but buried.

So is it not time that Silver Stick in Waiting (and Bluemantle Pursuivant and the Gentleman Usher to the Sword of State) are restored to the Royal Procession at the State Opening of Parliament?

They were only dropped by the Blair regime as a sop to the raucous lefties salivating at the prospect of using their "socialist" landslide to abolish the monarchy.

I look forward to a future Conservative government bringing forward legislation to restore the good old days (and before you think I am being frivolous, there is a lot of psychological kudos attached to the idea of turning back the clock - and even more to the idea of snubbing Tony Blair).
