The Succession

The executive authorities at go ahead Edinburgh cricket club Carlton have taken radical steps to bring the succession to the Carlton throne up to date.

The move, which was approved by all Heads of Commonwealth Governments and the Social Committee of the Carlton Junior Section, will mean that a left-hander can inherit the throne to become President of the Club.  This will end a long tradition of right-handed primogeniture.

A spokesperson for the club said that "People across the realms of the Commonwealth will be celebrating the news that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their first child.

"We can also all celebrate that whether the baby is a left-armer or a right-armer, they will have an equal claim to the throne."

The club is believed to have ignored more radical proposals from Fantasy Bob and will maintain the convention that the heir to the throne should be a cricketer.  This will exclude Fantasy Bob from consideration.  


  1. Is the line of succession just outside the off stump?
