Republican minded

  • Comment

First Colin Amery, now Gavin Stamp. In a lengthy treatise on the 'undermining' of the Prince's Institute, in a Spectator article last week, the adopted Glaswegian reaches this salutary conclusion: 'I cannot say it has all been enough to make me a modernist, but one does begin to see the point of republicanism.' Stamp seems particularly well-informed about recent machinations and current personalities at the Institute, thanks to this column (uncredited, of course), and to the Nooks and Corners page by that mythical figure Piloti, in Private Eye. I hope Gavin has sent the latter a tip fee.
