Insulting the King

It just shows what a corrupt and ignorant world we live in. With the exponential growth of the Internet to almost anywhere on the globe these days, a Facebook user applies a mock Prince Moulay Rachid name for his account and he now faces jail for insulting the inbred royal. Living in Australia, it just seems so backward, however, I take a step back and realise the reserve powers of the Governor General have not been addressed, and should we here in Oz decide to mock Prince Charles (which is not a difficult task) it could happen to moi? Scary thought? Not true? Does the Liberal Parties penchant for maintaining our ties to Her Majesties train, and the recent MP, PM John Howard the leader of such anachronistic beliefs, it may happen. The faster Labor moves towards a Republic the better, if you ask me.
