British Royal Blackmail Scandal: Today's Cartoon

I must say that despite all the scandals and controversies which surround the British Royal family, I'm not the least bit surprised that it's been over a century since someone has actually tried to blackmail Buckingham palace. I mean, what's the point of risking jail for a few thousands quid, when the same bloke can simply go to the tabloids and get a lot more for his (and the monarchy's) trouble?

Now, I'm not going to speculate as to which one it was (this time) that got caught polishing their crown jewels; as far as I'm concerned, if it weren't for creating scandals and making commoners feel morally superior, the Royal House of Windsor would have gone the way of the Hammer House of Horror a long time ago.

That's not to say that the British monarchy does not still serve a purpose, other than providing content for gossip rags, entertainment shows... and the occasional editorial cartoon :) It's just that they have a lot of free time to fill in between Garden parties.
