No crime in this country carries the death penalty any longer. Anyway for attacking Charlie you should get a knighthood.

The Criminal Damage Act 1971 abolished the offence of arson in royal dockyards.
The Naval Discipline Act 1957 reduced the scope of capital espionage from "all spies for the enemy" to spies on naval ships or bases.[18] Later, the Armed Forces Act 1981 abolished the death penalty for espionage.[19] (In 1911 the Official Secrets Act had created another offence of espionage which carried a maximum sentence of fourteen years.)
Beheading was abolished as a method of execution for treason in 1973.[20] However hanging remained available until 1998 when, under a House of Lords amendment to the Crime and Disorder Act 1998, proposed by Lord Archer of Sandwell, the death penalty was abolished for treason and piracy with violence, replacing it with a discretionary maximum sentence of life imprisonment. These were the last civilian offences punishable by death.
On 20 May 1998 the House of Commons voted to ratify the 6th Protocol of the European Convention on Human Rights prohibiting capital punishment except "in time of war or imminent threat of war." The last remaining provisions for the death penalty under military jurisdiction (including in wartime) were removed when section 21(5) of the Human Rights Act 1998 came into force on 9 November 1998. On 10 October 2003, effective from 1 February 2004,[21] the UK acceded to the 13th Protocol, which prohibits the death penalty under all circumstances,[22] so that the UK may no longer legislate to restore the death penalty while it is subject to the Convention. It can only now restore it if it withdraws from the Council of Europe.

May be, but it's the principle that I'm thinking of.
Two choices, either we have a Monarchy and we protect them as such, or we don't.
Because we as a country have chosen the former then an attack on the son and heir should be classed as high treason.
It's not a question of whether or not you like them, it's a question of upholding the law of the land.

Absolutely correct Volty. Our Monarchy should be protected totally. Maybe not a perfect system b ut imagine if ANY of our Idiot politicians ever got to be President. We may as well all be hanged because life wouldnt be worth living.
As forv the Monarchy costing a fortune, a government survey disclosed that a Presidential administration would cost three times more to run. God save the Queen.

But no worse than if horseface became queen with her potty lapdog as king, or Andrew became king.

Could it be she that launched Cunards Queen Victoria and condemned it to ill fortune?

I know some of them but the rest I wouldn't recognise if they fell on me.
