Re: The Removal of Titles Bill - pending
Perhaps, and perhaps not. In my perception, what you state is the ostensible reason for the Bill but...it also certainly opens up the future right of the sovereign to remove a title within the family that they themselves granted initially. What can be given, can and should just as logically be easily removed.
Hm, isn't the reason why the Sovereign doesn't have the right to take back a peerage that the peers should be free to criticize the Sovereign without risking to lose the peerage? (Henry VIII had the habit of doing so. I don't know if he was an exception.)
