Irish party leader suggests lifting ban on RCs becoming King or Queen
Sounds good to me though I don't see it practically making much difference.

The Irish Republic's Green Party leader Trevor Sargent called on the Prime Minister to lead the fight against sectarianism by changing the 1701 Act of Settlement.

One wonder what this has got to do with Mr Sargent, whose country in a burst of quixotic nationalism became a republic in 1949. Maybe it's the Republic's claim on the North.
