An Old King Probing for Weakness

King G. is in the news again.  He's quite outspoken about our inept politicians.  With most Nepalis agreeing that the Monarchy should have at least SOME role in Nepal's affairs, his comments were well timed.

"The aspirations of all self-respecting Nepalese have been totally ignored,"


Not the kind of thing a fellow would say if he was planning to fade away into history, is it?  


blogdai has always believed that a responsible Constitutional Monarchy could act as a viable balancing (if not motivating) voice to Parliament's chaos.  
Former King Gyanendra catches the drool of an admirer who was unable to contain himself.


Unfortunately, his drunken bum of a son Paras, has blown any chance of honorable succession. There also remains the prickly question of: When did King G. ever give a flying fart about the "aspirations of all self-respecting Nepalese..?"

And lest we forget, King G. had a nice lunch with those intrepid and not-very-stealthy RAW representatives. We might be seeing the opening moves in a new royalist movement.

G. knows that if he's to have any chance at the throne again, he must come off as an ultra-populist.
